She tweeted, "Mili, don't EVER let anyone tell you that you aren't flawless just as you are.i won championships with short hair".
Hernandez and her teammates made the finals of the Springfield Soccer Club girls tournament, but they were disqualified before even playing.
In fact, she is only 8-years-old but was so good on the pitch that team leaders moved her to the 11-year-old roster.
"It's what she likes".
The family says Mili Hernandez's team was disqualified because organizers thought she was a boy.
This past weekend she helped lead her club team, Omaha's Azzuri Cachorros, to the Springfield Soccer Club girls tournament final, but her team ended up getting disqualified.
But as she got older and was able to make decisions about her appearance, he asked if she wanted to let it grow out more.More news: Trump asked NSA director to publicly push back against FBI's Russian Federation investigation

Except the team set to face hers at the tournament made a decision to go for some major league baloney, and asked Hernandez's team to be disqualified because they believed she was a boy.
The Hernandez family recalled showing Mili's insurance card to the organizers, but that proof was not enough. "I didn't like my hair long", she explained.
Mili said she thinks the situation isn't fair.
"Why they want to tell my girl looks like a boy". "But they don't have a reason to kick the whole club out".
Mili loves soccer and she loves her short haircut. They have also directed any further questions to their attorney and the Nebraska State Soccer Association.
Mo Farivari, the president of Azzurri Soccer club, which includes Mili's team, said the complaint was amplified by a typo on a registration form, which listed Mili as a boy. Her skill on the soccer field?
Her brother said the tournament officials would not hear them out.
