Go ahead and refer to us as the four-time champs from now on. Both teams were held scoreless through the first 45 minutes, but it was the United States who eventually broke the tie in the 2019 Women’s World Cup Final.

A penalty kick from Megan Rapinoe followed by a beautiful solo goal by Rose Lavelle in the second-half led the U.S.A to a 2-0 win over the Netherlands.

KSBar was excited, to say the least.

With 26 total goals in the tournament, the U.S. set the record for most in a World Cup and are now back-to-back World Cup champions.

I believe that we have won. These are OUR Queens.

    I know it will never happen, mainly because our best male athletes play other sports, but I hope our men can become half as successful as our women. Our women are assassins. The current state of US men’s soccer could learn a lot. Unfortunately, our men are more concerned with their hair than they are quality soccer. Congrats ladies! True dominance yet again.

      Nocode or should I say no coherent thoughts: How many people in the US actually pay to see a woman’s professional sport in person?
      Does any women’s sport surpass the Men in popularity or demand for ticket sales?

      When the women’s pro basketball gets tv time, they zoom in on the crowd, so they don’t show all of the empty seats.

      Anyone can ballyhoo about how great women’s sports are, but bottom line is that they fall way short in their attendance numbers and over all popularity. Sports is about money. You can beat the drum about how great they are, they really aren’t.

      Since you want to drag the POTUS into the argument, Trump has won many awards for his charity works. He wasn’t labeled a racist and anti anything, until he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and declared that he would run for President as a republican. Had he announced as a democrat, the media would be fawning over him like a fat woman does a bowl of ice cream. Fairly soon, those involved in the coup against him, will be indicted, charged, and sentenced. He will have the last laugh.

      This site is great for UK news. UK fans have to put up with the left leaning political posts and the random fawnings over things like women’s soccer. Have to take the bitter with the sweet, I guess.

      Guess my previous post from yesterday was deleted so as not to offend angry purple-haired anti-American lesbians, so let me show my support once again… “GO ANGRY PURPLE-HAIRED ANTI-AMERICAN LESBIANS!!!”

      Oh look a Q’Anon nut in the house. The Trump charity was SHUT DOWN for being a scam. And he is a racist…always has been and always will be. And calling it a coup because his ENTIRE CAMPAIGN staff was coordinating with the Russians to illegally rig an election but was caught up in FBI wiretaps is quite the stretch. Yet, we will wait patiently while those indictments are rolled out against the FBI and deep state actors…meanwhile nearly Trump’s entire campaign rots in jail or soon will be. Turn off Faux News my friend. It is rotting your brain.

      DelRay has won the award for dumbest post in the history of KSR, a feat that is almost Herculean. Before becoming president, Trump was given awards by the black community, celebrated in 70+ songs by blacks, and was praised by black leaders. You call him racist with nothing than your soul cancer as evidence. Meanwhile, he has helped blacks more than any president in US history, so for a racist, he’s REALLY REALLY bad at it. The ONLY proof any Russian collusion comes from dems. The Steele dossier is real, The DNC funding it is real. The Five Eyes involvement is real. The Clinton uranium one deal is real. This is ALL factual unlike your mythical Trump RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA. You spent $40 million looking for a crime that didn’t exist to explain why you lost a rigged election. In reality, it was a cover up of the single greatest crime cabal in US history with ALL their actions documented. Not just some liberal wet dream circle jerk that mass delusion has somehow convinced weak minded evil people like yourself that myth is reality, and reality is to be ignored. The day of reckoning is coming for all your liberal f’heads. You took your shot and failed. Epstein was just arrested. This is the first domino, and it will not end well for your criminal cabal of pedophiles. I DARE you to show your face here and address this topic in six months and explain how YOU sided against the country for the real Russian colluders, sided with pedophiles, etc. ALL of it documented, just buried and unpunished up until now, Your tears will be DELICIOUS A’hole.

      What awards was Trump given by the Black Community? Not saying that you are wrong, I just haven’t heard of them. The rappers mentioned Trump in their songs, did so because he was rich and famous. A lot of stuff comes out when you run for President.

      Wow…just wow. Your projection is amazing. Epstein was Trump’s buddy and Maralago member. Everything you wrote is completely insane so I won’t bother replying to a mental midget. Yes, we will wait patiently as your delusions are exposed to be false one by one. God, you people are truly dense. Traitors…all of you. Don’t you have some Putin, Kim Jong Un, MBS boots to lick somewhere?

    1. I don’t give a damn about soccer, period.

    2. Putting an unpatriotic person, as the picture for a team representing the USA for anything, is not a good thing.

    3. Did I mention that I don’t give a damn about soccer?

      Lol, I find this comment hilarious. Why would you think anyone gives a hoot whether or not you like women’t soccer? Or checkers for that matter. And you mention it twice. Thanks for making me laugh.

      Unpatriotic? Why? Because she calls out a dipshlt president? trump is the most unpatriotic American there is numbnuts. He’s a multiple time draft dodger, he cuts back hand deals with our enemies, and needs to be tried for treason. Also, no one cares that you don’t care about soccer, except you apparently, who cared enough to mention it TWICE in a post about soccer AFTER you decided to come into the post and leave a comment. But, judging by your first comment, it’s likely you have not got even the slightest grip on reasoning and logic. Our women’s national soccer team is arguably the greatest USA sports team ever after the Dream Team, and you felt the need to shlt on them? That, my dim witted friend, is itself, unpatriotic.

      @UKfanforlife You can’t stand that:

      1. A woman is successful
      2. A woman is more successful than a man in the same sport
      3. This woman has opinions about the president

      and it’s hilarious.

      Nocode, you are as dumb as a bag of hammers, and that is offensive to hammers. The Kenyan gave Iran PALLETS of cash in the hundreds of millions, gave China back door deals, sold us out with Huawei, is on TAPE telling RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA he could be more flexible after the election, sided with ISIS and arrested soldiers engaging them, and Hillari sold uranium to Russia for hundreds of millions, ALL OF THIS IS DOCUMENTED, yet you say Trump is the problem, the guy who has helped minorities more than any president in US history, backed by actual fact, not piss and bile which is all you have. REAL facts exist, and REAL treason was commited by dems, and there will be REAL consequences. Your tears will be delicious a’hole.

      Golly gee whiz – it’s so horrible to use the picture of…a team co-captain who won BOTH the Golden Boot (most goals scored) AND the Golden Ball (best player of the tournament) while winning her SECOND World Cup (to go with her Olympic gold medal).

      Lighten up, Francis.

    For those of you interested in facts instead of invective, consider this:

    1) For 2016-2018, the US Women’s Soccer Team drew more fans AND brought in more revenue than did the USMNT. The margin was small – $50.8 million for the women vs. $49.9 million for the men – but it’s going to get larger, because the women just earned US Soccer *another* $4 million with their win today.

    2) FIFA earns 95% of its money from selling television, marketing, hospitality, and licensing rights for the World Cup (men’s AND women’s). In 2018, FIFA banked $4.6 BILLION in revenue.

    4) The current imbalance is huge. Last year, the men’s WC winner (France) received $38 million from FIFA, and the full men’s prize pool was $400 million. On the women’s side, the winner received $4 million, from a total prize pool of $30 million. Yup, the men’s WC winner was paid more than was the entire women’s field.

    So, you could compare the two national teams in several categories:

    a) Overall performance on the field (including friendlies)
    b) Performance in major tournaments (include the Olympics, if you like)
    c) Ticket sales for National Team games
    d) Overall revenue generated for US Soccer

    In every case, the women have been outperforming the men for quite some time…while US Soccer pays the men 3x what it pays the women.
