Unfortunately, the US soccer team captain Megan Rapinoe has managed to distract from the major accomplishments by her team, by focusing on her hatred for President Trump instead of talking about her teammates and what makes them such an incredible team.

The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on the selfish behavior of the US women’s soccer captain – Rapinoe started kneeling during the national anthem back in 2016. She said it was a protest against “white supremacy” and in support of black lives matter movement. She later said it was a protest against the treatment of gays in the US.

But recently she said her protesting during the anthem is her f*** you to Trump and all of his racism.

Last Tuesday President Trump ripped the far-left activist for trashing her country, “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there, maybe they shouldn’t be in the country.”

In response, Megan Rapinoe told reporters, “I’m not going to the f**king White House!”

Now, the Daily Mail is reporting that the US team has dropped their captain Megan Rapinoe in a shock move ahead of tonight’s World Cup semi-final clash against England – as Prince William and Holly Willoughby led celebrities sending good luck messages to the Lionesses on social media.

US head coach Jill Ellis has insisted that the move was not made for any disciplinary reasons, although she did not rule out the possibility of an injury.

The Stade du Lyon is thronging with thousands of supporters ahead of the 8pm kick-off, as another 10million England fans prepare to watch the action back home on BBC1.

Much like the players themselves, the United States women’s soccer team fans were not lacking confidence ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup semi-final matchup with England in Lyon.

UPDATE: Coach Jill Ellis confirmed that Rapinoe had a slight hamstring strain.

“I feel we have a deep bench and called upon another player and thought they did a fantastic job,” Ellis said.
