Associated Press

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — The new coach of Spain’s women’s team has had to delay the announcement of her first squad after nearly all of the country’s World Cup-winning players maintained their boycott of the national team. Spain coach Montse Tomé was set to announce her squad on Friday. But the federation said it was postponed to a time to be determined. Spain’s women have had little chance to celebrate their greatest soccer achievement because the now former president of the Spanish soccer federation caused an uproar when he kissed player Jenni Hermoso on the lips at the awards ceremony in Sydney on Aug. 20.
