Megan Rapinoe won both the Golden Ball award for best player of the World Cup and the Golden Boot as top scorer. While preparing for media appearances and a parade in New York after the women’s football team in the United States has entertained the victory in France, the football star and lightning WEATHER about patriotism, staring at the quick turn pressure and criticism of President become. Since the United States-the Netherlands 2-0 in the final of the July 7, beat the World Cup and you and your teammates have celebrated quite difficult. How tired are you? They are just totally exhausted and euphoric at the same time. I think it’s the adrenaline rush when talking about science. There’s nothing like that feeling, there’s nothing like the opportunities we have now, and the excitement around him. He has three of your five goals in the knockout stage for tense penalty shootout. What kind of advice you can share with the rest of us with high-pressure situations to do? Thank God our instructors train had to start before we got to the tournament. Very heads-up action of them. Calm yourself, believe in yourself, stick to your routine and mash house. There were about other countries around the world to bridge the talent gap with the United States, a lot of talk, now the World Cup women’s eight won four, which was denied. But your team with points surpassed their opponents 26-3 during the tournament. If the distance is very close? Absolutely. Teams like Spain and Italy co-going round, has had good performances. The Netherlands, who were not even in the last World Cup, and have not put in the past, the past four years a lot of women in the programs, they are the European champions and the final of the World Cup. England is so good, Japan – every team I like the feeling is always better, and is a true sign that all these organizations put more money into their programs and really maximize these women their potential and the type and, should exercise to get the best of themselves. Surely every team gets better, including us. The gap is approaching in each case. The margin for improvement in the upper part is smaller compared to some of the other team. But still we keep ours. Is there something you want to have on your trip – or make that he had done – that could be useful for someone to come and learn in other ways, shoes, or footballer? Some things seem like a young player in terms of his professionalism, the body to be at the top of your game – I would have to do all the things, now I’m doing before I turned 30, I started doing when I was 30, I was like, Oh, wow, that makes a difference. right food to am super deliberately education, recreation, things like weight lifting, all the little things I do not think you need if 22 or 23, you think you’re invincible forever, and it turns out, not re. As for the off-the-field stuff, I really have no regrets. I think I learned and grew in my career. As a younger player, you’re kind of big eyes and try to absorb it all. But I feel like me and the whole team really took the platform we have, and I tried to do it in the best way to use, we can bring about change. Because he is standing stoically during the national anthem singing or set down hand over his heart? I sympathize with Colin Kaepernick in an attempt to carry on a conversation. It’s no secret that we have not very tense race relations in this country. I do not think anyone is free as anyone else. For people with more privileges – and we would also like to recall in this group into consideration – put our own skin in the game, then things are not going to really change. And if you do not put their own skin in the game, then I think you should have a look in the mirror and say, “What are you doing? How are you with what platform you have, what time you have to change to help this?” Because I really think they all believe should make the world around them a better place is responsibility. For people with more privileges – and we would also like to recall in this group into consideration – put our own skin in the game, then things are not going to really change. Despite his anthem attitude because you consider how you said, “very American deep”? I have seen so soon my hotel window in New York City, I arrived here and saw the Statue of Liberty. The land of unlimited possibilities. But it must be something for everyone. Many people were cut from this dream. It ‘something to be the country’s largest and badder and better. But if you do not stand for someone else, that might not be in this position, then you’re just kind of a tyrant. Your goal celebration, a pose with arms outstretched, is now iconic. What message did you send? What was I represent every fight for the same things as they are – equal higher pay attention to race relations, migrants at the border – do not tell us to silence, you can not take the smile off our face, you will not make him take it all we. It came. They were here. We are not going. What was your reaction to President chirping Trump during the tournament that you do not respect the country? One of our press officers warned me. Look, I did not follow the president on Twitter, so I do not see why I had to be found. I know it’s a serious thing, I know it’s a big problem. But it seemed crazy to me that this is happening. He jumped over 4,000 things on your to do this to-do list instead. Everything. We have to play. If I need a presidential tweet at this point has motivated me to get, we have a bigger problem. But it certainly does not unmotivate me, that’s for sure. But the next game against France in the quarterfinals, who scored two goals in a 2-1 victory over the host nation. He has his tweets motivate? Maybe a little. There was so much motivation for many different reasons than before. And maybe I think you have all the reasons in more motivation only. If I need a presidential tweet at this point has motivated me to get, we have a bigger problem. But it certainly does not unmotivate me, that’s for sure. If you were president of the Trump faces, what would you say to him? We must bring inclusion. What kind of world you are trying to create? Let’s talk about that before you have a conversation about anything. She has been an outspoken advocate for equal pay in football. FIFA is committed available to enhance women players of the World Cup prize money $30 million this year to $60 million in 2023. But you said, that does not go far enough. Because? Thirty to 60 is completely arbitrary. I do not know where the next 30 where he came 60th I think they thought, “will double, and then will be really happy.” But doubling equal to zero even zero. I want to get, how can we invest in women’s football, this figures to get a lot closer to where the men are. [Men $440 million in prize money for the World Cup 2022 are obtained.] The US team to strengthen the role of women has come to embody, on and off the field. What happens in your head that represented the World Cup victory, after all? Certainly much more than the World Cup. Much more than just a sport. This has to be the turning point. The conversation is not over, we would have to pay the same, or should we support women. And ‘the way they help not only athletes, but women in general. And really, to invest it and have a conversation and move on from where it has been for a long period of time. So I think it is in many ways a monumental victory. The effects will be felt for many years.
