Megan Rapinoe is the golden boot and the golden ball winner at this edition of the Women's World Cup. Everyone knows what that means. It means she has been invincible.
However, her wonders don't stop at the field. Even outside of it, she is a star and an example of a fearless woman who acts like she has nothing to lose. Looking at her life and career, it's clear that she has nothing to lose.

So, when asked 'why do you like Rapinoe?', I have many things to say. But here, I have made a list of 10. Read on.
1. She is one of the greatest footballers of this generation.
2. Everything she touches, turns into goal.
3. She has nothing to hide, especially not her sexuality.
4. And she is an inspiration in so many ways.

5. She has won 2 World Cups as a part of America's national squad.
6. And an Olympic gold with the team.
7. She is not afraid of voicing her opinions.
Women’s soccer player, @mPinoe, just stated that she is “not going to the F...ing White House if we win.” Other than the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (please explain that I just got Criminal Justice Reform passed, Black unemployment is at the lowest level...— Donald J.

8. And she goddamn finishes her job.
....in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming to the White House. I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2019
9. When she talks, everyone listens.
10. She has always taken a strong stand for equal pay.
