8-year-old Mili Hernandez loves soccer and she also loves having a short haircut.
Over the weekend, Mili helped lead her team to the finals however, before taking the field on Sunday, Mili and her team were suddenly disqualified because soccer organizers insisted Mili was a boy.
Gerardo Hernandez, Mili’s father, told WOWT 6 News that his daughter "was in shock." He continued: "She was crying after they told us... They made her cry."
Mili's family claims they showed her insurance card to tournament organizers in an effort to prove she's a girl. It wasn't enough.
