Sue Bird BLASTS Trump Over "Hate-Filled" Speech Against Girlfriend Megan Rapinoe

Sue Bird BLASTS Trump Over

That, however, is unlikely to be a reason for leaving Rapinoe out - as she, along with Alex Morgan, are viewed as an integral members of Jill Ellis' side.

Despite her absence, the USA won 2-1, with American goals scored by Press and team captain Alex Morgan and England's goal scored by Ellen White.

Press found the back of the net in the 10th minute to give the United States a 1-0 lead over England.

Throughout this competition, the Americans have been dogged by criticisms of being too proud, celebrating too much and veering into arrogance.

The U.S. team will face off in the final against the victor of Wednesday's match between the Netherlands, who won the 2017 Euro Cup, and Sweden, which scored an unexpected win against Germany during the quarter-finals.

"I just thought, 'What are they doing?'" Neville said, according to the AP. I think it's what drove her to take a knee. That's planning and preparation for our staff. Well... it's WEIRD. And I'd say I actually had a pretty standard reaction to it: which was to freak out a little. She also netted the team's only two goals against Spain. As she explained in her column, she is 100-percent behind the Americans' fight to be treated the same as the US men's national team - and thinks anyone with a different opinion needs to recheck their stance.

"I stand by the comments I made about not wanting to go to the White House, with the exception of the expletive - my mom will be very upset about that", Rapinoe said a day before her team's quarterfinal win over France. Rapinoe had scored the USWNT's last four goals in the tournament and had dominated play for most of it. After her second goal, she faced the crowd with her arms defiantly in the air, a pose many likened to Russell Crowe's "Are you not entertained?" call from the film "Gladiator".

"But then Megan, Man..."

"To all those congratulating me on my wife's awesome World Cup performance: thank you!"

WNBA star Sue Bird says USA women's national team winger Megan Rapinoe has been "completely unfazed" by President Trump's criticism during the World Cup. "She's going to do her thing, at her own damn speed, to her own damn rhythm, and she's going to apologize to exactly NO ONE for it", Bird wrote. So when all the Trump business started to go down last week, I mean - the fact that Megan just seemed completely unfazed? "It's unusual to say, but that was probably the only normal thing about it", Bird wrote.

Bird and Rapinoe initially met at a sponsorship event at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women's Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS!

The 33-year-old has been one of the stars of this summer's tournament, helping USWNT to victory in every one of their World Cup games so far - scoring a crucial brace in the quarter-final as hosts France were eliminated 2-1 at the Parc des Princes. The USA will take on the victor of Wednesday's semifinal match between the Netherlands and Sweden.
