US hold back rising European tide to maintain World Cup dominance

US hold back rising European tide to maintain World Cup dominance

The 2019 victory is represented with a golden star on top of the three stars featured above the US crest seen on the uniforms that the USWNT wore during this World Cup in France. Just a short tweet congratulating the World Cup champions from the President of the United States.

"She's superstar, not even in the making, she's straight up superstar at this point", Rapinoe said.

The Oranjeleeuwinnen lost the final 2-0 to the US, while already making history by reaching the title contention in their second World Cup appearance. Ellis explained how Rapinoe was good at handling pressures on and off the pitch and why her stance is important not just for the U.S. team but also women's football across the world.

"It's going to take a while to come down from this high but I don't know if it's us getting older or the game just evolving and becoming more challenging but it has been so emotionally exhausting this time around", said Morgan, who also finished the tournament with six goals. She moved across the Atlantic as a teenager.

However, according to USA Today, Trump's tune has changed.

"I think everyone is ready for this conversation to move to the next level", she said when asked about the "equal pay" chanting at the final whistle, which was prompted by the arrival on the pitch of Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino.

While a hint of an English accent remains, Alex Morgan describes her boss as "100 percent American" now.

"That's why I propose to the Fifa council and to all our members - who have to embrace the development of women's football".

It is three decades since Wiegman jumped at the chance given to her by Anson Dorrance to go and play at the University of North Carolina.

"I feel invincible", she said after lifting the trophy.

It means a European nation has not won since Germany in 2007, while the USA's four World Cups stand alongside their record four Olympic golds. Wiegman, meanwhile, went on to become the first Dutch footballer to win 100 caps.

The Women's World Cup has been held every four years since 1991, meaning there have only been eight tournaments so far.

Rapinoe shook Infantino and Macron's hands as she received her medal. It's unbelievable, ' she said. When you are behind, you need to work harder to get it equal.

Actor George Takei offered a "brava" to the women, and Mandy Moore said they made the country "immeasurably proud".

"They're paid to win", shot back another Rapinoe critic.
