Visit My Profile plzzz It's a sad day to think about celebrating this kind of defeat, but the uswnt has put politics over patriotism for a while now. How unfortunate They should have protested more intensely, especially in the second half. hahaha karma for kneeling and protestibg the flag the anthem and the police

Mr. Rapinoe must be heartbroken. They’re behavior was abhorrent- they embarrassed themselves with their anti-US. crap and frankly I WAS EMBARRASSED AND DISGUSTED they were the US Women’s Soccer delegation for this Olympics. For the first time in my life- I rooted for the non-US athletes!! This team is not popular with most Americans no matter what MSM says

So many “patriots” out here with nothing good to say. Congratulations on your hate and vitriol. I’m sure you’re all absolute peaches with those who actually have to be around you. Headline should read. Rapinoe and USA to compete for the Pewter. Now, let’s hope some retire and get some fresh blood in there

USWNT loses in Olympic semifinal 1-0 to CanadaCanada's Jessie Fleming scored a penalty kick in the 75th minutes to reach its first Olympic final, guaranteeing at least a silver medal. It’s about to end but good timing lol Remember Americans if you are proud of how well the American athletes are doing it’s all due to the Fox far gQp republican Right saying they suck and are a embarrassment to our nation.

So glad they lost they don't deserve gold or sliver medal after having them kneeling or turning away from the flag we don't need someone like that winning the only ones that deserve to win are those who stand and face the flag What happens when you kneel instead of run🏌️‍♂️ Focus more on the game and less on equal pay knowing all the while pay comes down to revenue and this wouldn’t happen. 🙈

“Pay us more!” They still have a game left. GMA Νοw they can focus on what matters most....how much money they earn from their national team!
