Is it really arrogance when you're the defending World Cup champs and you're 6-0 in the current World Cup, heading to the final, and you've outscored your opponents by a total of 24-3? Over 20 million people watching on television worldwide along with 45,000 packed into the stadium.
An estimated 25,000 fans from United States made the trip to Lyon for the semifinal and were the vocal majority in the Stade de Lyon against England, who despite its proximity to France did not have the same support. She scored every single United States goal in first two rounds of knockout play, notching two goals against both Spain and France for a pair of narrow 2-1 victories.
There was also a surprise name in the England XI as goalkeeper Karen Bardsley was unable to take her place between the posts due to a hamstring injury, Carly Telford coming in for just her second start at a major tournament.
And so on the 50th anniversary of the gay rights movement, it's completely appropriate that the world's eyes should be on someone who has fought prejudice to achieve prominence, and then used the power and responsibility she has to carry the fight on for future generations. "I think we have had a huge impact on the movement as a whole". I know that I'm not ideal.
Those accomplishments include winning three World Cup titles, four Olympic gold medals and maintaining a No. 1 ranking around the world for 10 out of the last 11 years.
Like all great soccer games, the USA-England semifinal was full of surprises and unlikely heroes. Earlier in the tournament, Rapinoe received backlash again for exercising her right to kneel during the National Anthem. "You just can not shake that girl", Bird wrote about her partner. Keep an eye out tonight and you will see it. I think for the detractors, I would have them look hard into what I'm actually saying, the actions that I'm doing, maybe you don't agree with every single way that I do it and that can be discussed.
"It just wasn't going to be ready for today, but it's feeling much better, and I expect to be ready for the final". She's a very experienced, eloquent person.
"I think that I am particularly and uniquely and very deeply American", Rapinoe told reporters. When U.S. soccer dictated she stand for the anthem, she didn't nail herself nail herself on a Twitter cross, she stood and silently protested by refusing to sing and place her hand over her heart.
