Women’s football is not competitive.
If I got a dollar for the number of times I have heard this being said directly or being implied, I’d be watching the Women’s World Cup in France.
I don’t know what someone’s definition of ‘competitive’ is but 13 goals in one match will make the cut in any given scenario.
Uhm…the US National Women’s Soccer Team is out here to WIN this World Cup. I don’t know what the REST of these teams came to do…but a 13-0 result in the first game? Just start engraving the trophy tonight. #WomensWorldCup2019— Daryle Lockhart (@darylelockhart) June 12, 2019
Yeah, the US national football team scored Thirteen goals in one match against Thailand while conceding ZERO.
Let me just say if I was ever to buy a US national team jersey there is only one I would buy men or women. pic.twitter.com/i4HsDg9dQ1— brstraight (@str8dog83) June 12, 2019
.Womens US National Soccer Team. 13-0. Drop mic. #GirlsRule #EqualPayWouldBeCool— Wendy Ili (@Wendy_Ili) June 12, 2019
As put in contrast by CNN, these were the results of US men’s team in last 3 World Cups outings.
2 goals in 2006.
5 goals in 2010.
5 goals in 2014.
0 goals in 2018. Because they did not particpate.
This is the only US National Team we need. #usmntsux— Victor Colón (@VictorC19952017) June 11, 2019
At least one US national soccer team can be good— Jameson Francis (@MR_Jayfrancis) June 11, 2019
Why am I bringing the male team in the narrative of women’s team’s performance? Because the vice versa is very rampant when things like pay and investment are discussed.
While we are on the topic, let’s also look at the records made and broken by them in this one match:
1. Most goals scored by a team in a World Cup match – for both genders.
we got all kinds of records today 📈#FIFAWWC pic.twitter.com/S7LPl9B2j9— U.S. Soccer WNT (@USWNT) June 11, 2019
After all this, if you are still going to tell me their games don’t deserve to be followed, I will look at it as your loss. Completely.
Today I was at school trying to check the US National Women’s Team score in the World Cup for the game that was happening. I typed in “Us national soccer World Cup 2019 score” and it showed me the score from a qualifying match the men lost two years ago. Pt 1— Isabella Clemmens (@IsabellaAngele6) June 12, 2019
