Beyond World Cup, US Team Hopes for Greater Support for Women's Game

  • Sweden's Kosovare Asllani center and Chile's Karen Araya right challenge for the ball during the Women's World Cup Group F soccer match between Chile and Sweden at the Roazhon Park in Rennes France Tuesday

Kosovare Asllani's goal after a weather delay broke up a scoreless stalemate and Sweden went on to win its Women's World Cup opener 2-0 on Tuesday and spoil Chile's debut in the tournament.

The U.S. National Team's first game will be against Thailand on Tuesday at 12 P.M. PST/3 P.M. EST.

The U.S. are the most successful team in the sport. "The ball just happened to bounce my way", she said.

"And I think that support is coming".

The USWNT's recent lawsuit demanding equal pay is the latest, but by no means the only non-soccer talking point that has accompanied the team over the years.

American player Lindsey Horan said this year's World Cup, "in itself is going to change things for women's soccer, how we play and how the world sees us". Just after the 2016 Olympics, the US beat Thailand 9-0 in a friendly.

Ri was a former midfielder who featured in the Women's World Cups in 1999 and 2003 as a player before turning to refereeing.

Elsewhere, Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg revealed that star player Dzsenifer Marozsan may miss the rest of the World Cup after being ruled out of Wednesday's crucial Group B clash with Spain due to a broken toe. Rapinoe, Tobin Heath, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O'Hara, Ali Krieger and Alex Morgan are all playing their third World Cup. "A lot of these players who have had experience from the last World Cup or Olympics, we can look on that - look at both the successes and the defeats that we've had".

Sweden got their campaign off to a winning start with a 2-0 win over Chile. This result won't reignite those expectations but it may be what gives them the confidence needed to take on Cameroon and Canada to wrap up the group stage.

The Thai squad has two USA -born members who have played for American colleges: Goalkeeper Tiffany Sornpao plays at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, and forward Miranda Nild played at UC Berkeley - Morgan's alma mater.

Distractions come with the territory of being a US women's national team player.

Morgan said she had just spotted Nild in the hallway and introduced herself. She is also tied with Tiffany Milbrett for sixth on the U.S.'s all-time goal list.
