Organizers at a Nebraska soccer tournament recently disqualified Mili Hernandez and her team from participating in the tournament's final match. Her dad could not be more proud.

Thankfully, Mili hasn't been deterred from playing soccer altogether as there are other tournaments she can play in.

Mili says the incident won't stop her from playing soccer with another club but she certainly doesn't think the decision is fair.

Her reply? A resounding no. She tweeted, "Mili, don't EVER let anyone tell you that you aren't ideal just as you are.i won championships with short hair".

"Just because I look like a boy doesn't mean I am a boy", added Mili in her interview with WOWT 6 News. But on Sunday, before taking the field, she and her team were suddenly disqualified because Springfield soccer organizers believed her to be a boy. Not to mention, organizers have said if Mili and her family want to challenge the disqualification they can appeal it with the Nebraska State Soccer Association.

Very wicked, to target that sort of thing", the 91-year-old monarch told 14-year-old Evie Mills and her parents. Abedi's father and younger brother have also been arrested in Libya following the attack.

But hair and soccer collided at a tournament last weekend. He said her full first name is Milagros and that Mili is a nickname she's had since she was a baby. But apparently none of that matters to officials at the Springfield Soccer Club girls tournament, Fox8Live reports.

Gerardo Hernandez said his daughter "was in shock".

"I was mad. I never had that problem before". (I couldn't resist) There's a lawyer salivating over this story right now.

"They didn't want to listen", brother Cruz Hernandez said. Even after being shown documentation that she's a girl, organizers refused to budge. They told Hernandez and her family that the president already made his decision and there was nothing they could do.

An official with the soccer tournament did not return a call from The Post seeking comment.
