    In some aspects, I enjoy Women's soccer more than Men's . For one, Women's soccer has way less violent tackles and fouls. For two, the beauty of women players is far more surpass that of men's LOL

        All the comments saying women’s should play for the men’s 😂 are y’all kidding! They’ll get ☠️ They made me really good but not that good! Men are way faster and they would probably get burnt out before the first half ends.

            Can people stop comparing Men’s to Women’s soccer, two different sports,

            so stop with the equal pay BS, as much as I like the women’s team, None of them would make the under 15 men’s national team

                  Fontero27 lol you must not know anything about soccer, the under 20 men’s team would destroy this women’s team, none of these girls would even make the under 15 men’s team

                  It’s two different sports

                        Don't play long ball and try midfield control plus backup defense use contra attack with long range missile through Morgan striker other thing Sweden attacking with crossfire on both sides midfielder should be tight on 11th

                            The women soccer team should play for the men soccer team instead.

                              MsPulimen by the way, this woman’s national team lost 5-2 against a bunch of 13-14 year old boys who plays for a Dallas club team...

                              MsPulimen lol ability includes technical skills, men’s technical skills are still supreme, like I said none of these girls can even make the under 15 men’s team

                              That’s one thing the Women’s US teams lack is team technical skill, they have plenty of talent, athleticism but what they always lack is team technical skills

                              Japan, and Spain are known for their technical skills not the USA

                              The US women’s team has never been a technical team

                              Da Phetdala if soccer was about abilities, then France wouldn’t have won the World Cup last year. Those who think that dribbling makes teams win are sadly mistaken. It’s all about teamwork

                              MsPulimen don’t get the wrong impression, these girls are good, compared to other girls, but their no where close to men or even boys in abilities

                            Hey all you Team USA soccer fans, another thing you need to know is females on the team, disrespect American and our flag. What a sad joke of sport. Best wishes for the Team USA to be crushed by anyone they encounter of the soccer field. DRS / RVN Vet.

                              Gee Dave, a safe place? I better go run and hide now. Actually, tolerating the woman's behavior represents the whole team. Counter with she does have a First Amendment Right to disrespect the country that has enabled her to excel and achieve fame. Old guys like me, when we are not cowering in a "safe place" have an affirmative duty to comply with our oath to support and defend the Constitution and defend those who disrespect us. I do not wish team USA well on the athletic field, but will defend their right to condemn freedom. DRS / RVN Vet.

                                  I’m gonna just say it. The reason why these other World Cup teams are starting to rise and become level with the USA is because of their domestic leagues. Look at England. Arguably, one of the most talented leagues (WSL) in the world. Their top tier teams have immense depth. Then we go to France, another immensely talented domestic league. Furthermore, if we go to Germany, they’ll have top ranked stars that have triumphed at the international level. Something that all those leagues have in common? A higher budget cap than the NWSL, giving them more of a budget to target players who are talented at both the international level and the club level. I feel like the USA needs to develop a stronger domestic league in order to continue their dominance. Now, sure the NC Courage won the ICC Cup, but all the other teams were deep into their off season, giving the Courage a great chance at securing the cup. The NWSL is strong, don’t get me wrong, but the Salary Cap holds restrictions on the talent they can acquire. Heck, of the US internationals wouldn’t get paid by their federation, a lot of the teams wouldn’t be able to afford their services at their respective clubs. Just saying, this needs to be fixed.

                                    The US pool of players is in the thousands, little girls playing soccer at a young age is in the 10’s of millions, England’s pool of players in the the hundreds and girls that play are only in the thousands

                                    The US can bring 10 different teams to France and ALL 10 would be better then Most of the teams that are there

                                    The US can field 20 different teams and each one would beat Thailand Easley

                                    The only problem with the US is the coaching... if they had better technical team skills, they would dominate, they’ve always depended upon their depth, size, athleticism, and I divisional skill

                                    that couldn’t be further from the truth. sure, many players from the united states get paid much better here, but that is only because of how the federation pays for their salary, rather than the individual clubs. on top of that, you can say that those players were acquired to the United States because of interest in the nwsl, but not because of pay. countless times, we have seen player after player leave the nwsl to get a better wage, like amandine henry (who you stated), kim little, erin mcleod, janine beckie, adrianna leon, and nadia nadim. furthermore, there have been multiple youngsters (freshly out of college/rookies) that have excluded themselves from the nwsl due to either salary restrictions, or a club’s disregard for their players, like brianne haeberlin, santara murray (who has now moved closer to home, but dodged the draft to play abroad initially), alana cook, casey murphy (who has moved closer to home as well but started her career abroad), haley mace, julia ashley, and claire falknor (who at once did move back to the USA but it was brief before she left to play abroad again). basically, how it works in the nwsl is that the maximum salary is around $46,000, but in almost every other league, excluding norway and sweden, clubs are allowed to compensate the players as much as they want as long as the salary total is under 40% of the club’s net profit for the year prior and any additional bonuses that were given at the beginning of the year.

                                    Blah blah blah you realize they get paid less when they go to Europe but get better accommodations right ? European players and the like come to play in the NWSL like Amadine Henry (France), Sam Kerr (Australia), Marta ( Brazil) ....shall I continue? Americans do go to play abroad too . But the main reason players go abroad to play is to enrich their own skills and game and to learn more about theirselves and see soccer /football from a different perspective.

                                          Know this. If they paid more attention to playing soccer and less time chiming in on politics, maybe they wouldn't lose to a team of 14 yr old boys.

                                            Y’all are funny if u think the USWNT actually tried in a scrimmage against a group of 14 yr boys right before a match against Russia. They just wanted the boys to feel good and give them a chance to meet and play against famous soccer players. Get your facts right and stop twisting the story.

                                            @Lindsey Shane By your logic, a champion college football team should be paid better than an NFL team that didn't make the play-offs. At least the college team won a bowl game -- same goes with a high school champion football team. You minimize how the caliber of soccer played by the US mens soccer team is so much higher than that of the women's team. That flaw is what is most obvious. And don't even get me started on the WNBA.

                                              @laura g Of course you are annoyed, because you look at the world through the distorted lens of a victim. You are the one who is complaining about alleged "privilege and power" without any understanding of those words. How is getting paid the same for doing MORE work and HARDER work at Wimbeldon, as men do, which is the issue at hand that we are talking about an example of "privilege"? You don't even know what the word means then. No wonder you are confused, and therefore, annoyed. If a man earns something, that's not "privilege." That's just you playing with distracting, reframing left-wing Marxist language born of envy and resentment and loaded with negative connotations that you can't even get beyond or above. There is no denotation to anything real. You've been played for a fool by feminism and its language of distorted unreality.

                                              @R3LO4D3D The men should sue Wimbledon, since they subsidize women's tennis there -- where women get the same prize money for playing 3 sets tops and selling fewer tickets. That's anti-male sexism, folks, any way you slice it. Just imagine the shrill cries from feminists if it were reversed and women had to play 5 sets and carry the men's game, yet only got paid the same. Imagine that. Feminists are the biggest sexists in the world.

                                                    I like how the feminists chime in about winning teams having viewers and packed stadiums. But they don't want to talk about turnout for losing teams. They only wanna talk about viewers for "finals" but don't wanna talk about regular season interest. They only wanna compare themselves with the American men's team.
                                                    Why not compare the women's league to the men's in terms of overall revenue, viewership, attendance, etc.
                                                    FACT IS the Highest level Women's soccer teams have lost to 14-15 year old boys!
                                                    The men's team may be losers, but they would mop the field with the American Women's team. THAT'S why they don't make as much. Their basing their value on their PEAK performance, PEAK attendance, Peak popularity. Their overall market value is WAY lower than their ego can admit.
