Bardsley and Rapinoe missing from World Cup semi-final lineups

Rapinoe a warrior on and off the field says team mate Press

The Seattle Storm guard wrote about Rapinoe-whom she's now dating-on The Players' Tribune, detailing how the forward has dealt with a torrent of controversy while leading the U.S.to the World Cup semifinals.

She was one of the first athletes outside of the NFL to kneel during the national anthem in support for Colin Kaepernick's protest against police brutality. But I think that I stand for honesty and for truth and for wanting to have the conversation.

"Maybe they don't need me for the final", Rapinoe laughed. "The difference between "Kaep" and "Rap" is believability and authenticity". Much of it praises Rapinoe for standing up for what she believes in...

Rapinoe offered a bit more insight into her worldview on Wednesday, making her case as to why she continues to speak out. "There is a world of difference between inspiration and transformation - one is organic; the other is socially engineered".

The latest numbers make the match the most-watched FIFA Women's World Cup quarterfinal in the U.S. It's also the most-watched soccer match on English-language TV since the 2018 men's World Cup final. She had tape on right leg yesterday. She said in a subsequent statement she regretted using profanity in the video clip but otherwise stood by her sentiments. "To make a save like that is just fantastic for her".

Women's soccer player, @mPinoe, just stated that she is "not going to the F...ing White House if we win".

Three players on the squads are tied in the race for the Golden Boot, the prize for most goals: Rapinoe, Morgan and England's Ellen White all have five.

The American team, which now reigns as FIFA's Women's World Cup Champions, has proved on more than one occasion this season that they're a force to be reckoned with.

So Whitlock feels every time Rapinoe succeeds on the field it brings attention to her cause.

In the first half, both teams sliced through the other as though, England coach Phil Neville said later, the defenders were mannequins.

"I am not going to fake it, hobnob with the president, who is clearly against so numerous things that I am [for] and so numerous things that I actually am", Rapinoe told Sports Illustrated.

I was pretending to know about soccer. "I'm not going to the f***ing White House", she said, in a dismissive manner that slightly took the breath away. The president, who is hardly bashful about his own imagined successes, also lectured Rapinoe on "finishing the job" before deciding whether to turn down a triumphal White House visit. "But I applaud her for taking a stance, for fighting for equality".
