Congratulations on the big win!
Thanks Ron but it's not over 'til the fat lady sings I'm afraid. However this is the furthest they have come on a big tournament like this so we as a nation are really proud of them.
But the funny thing is that our women's team has made it a bit further in football than the men. They've made it to the World cup which the men haven't. Yet...
Our women's team is better than the men's team, too. They also make way more money than the men's team. They are fighting with USA Soccer because they get paid way less than the men's team. I think USA Soccer claims the women don't deserve higher pay because their husbands or Fathers are the real bread winners of their families and the members of the women's team will eventually need to take that expensive maternity leave.
That is messed up if you're right. Sounds very fifties if you ask me.
Because it's a "sissy" sport? Just a joke so no flaming needed
Well compared to rugby the only thing that could make it harder(more manly) is rugby with guns, nukes and knives.
All the above should be referred to their last performance. For those not used to soccer, such a score is considered a good one in this part of the planet. In Europe it is a bit more common.
