Congrats to the US Women’s National Team for scoring their second straight World Cup with Sunday’s 2-0 win over the Netherlands.
They embody excellence not merely as world champs, nonetheless as one of the very best teams ever.
Co-captain Megan Rapinoe was the clear star all match prolonged, the very best scorer and rightful winner of the Golden Ball award for the best participant. That she nailed what proved to be the profitable score, her sixth function of the tourney, is solely icing on a particularly sweet cake.
Here’s hoping the USWNT can score one more win, of their go effectively throughout the opposition to the US Soccer Federation for pay equal to the lads’ group. It’s now laborious to see why the women don’t earn additional: They’re not solely markedly additional worthwhile, moreover, they carry in extra revenue.
In any case, Mayor Bill de Blasio was clearly correct to ask America’s newest champions to a ticker-tape parade on Wednesday, city’s first such celebration given that one for the 2015 USWNT.
That was city’s first ticker-tape honor for a women’ group; perhaps the essential legacy of this group is that they’ve definitely impressed quite a few girls to pursue athletic excellence themselves — and make women’s-team marches a frequent future Canyon of Heroes operate.
