USWNT's Julie Ertz Reacts To Husband Going To Super Bowl LII

USWNT's Julie Ertz Reacts To Husband Going To Super Bowl LII

Julie Ertz scored during the US women's national team's 5-1 victory against Denmark on Sunday night in San Diego. She actually had a game of her own to play in, as the U.S. Women's National Team had their season-opener against Denmark in San Diego.

Julie Ertz was perhaps the last person associated with the Philadelphia Eagles to find out she is going to Minneapolis in two weeks for the Super Bowl.

Let's just say Julie's emotions are pretty understandable.

"I was kind of looking around for someone to give me confirmation and answers, and I feel like I needed it from at least like three people to make it feel real", Ertz said, according to ESPN.

While Zach Ertz was having his best season on the gridiron, Julie Ertz, who changed her name from Julie Johnston after their March nuptials, was having an unbelievable season on the pitch.

It's not the first time Zach and Julie have shared the athletic spotlight. And Zach led the Eagles with eight receptions for 93 yards in a 38-7 win against the Minnesota Vikings.

This is one of the many reasons we love sports. I'm so excited for them. The Ertzes are going to the Super Bowl! In fact, Julie told ESPN the Magazine in 2017 that the pair even work out together during their respective offseasons.

The Eagles square off against the Patriots in the Super Bowl on February 4.

"Is he really going?" she said.
