Donald Trump celebrates USWNT World Cup victory on Twitter

Alex Morgan on potential White House visit for USWNT I think you know the answer

It was a sharp contrast with the hero-like reception given to player of the match Megan Rapinoe by the 57,900 crowd.

The evening belonged to Rapinoe, who was awarded the Golden Boot as well as the Golden Ball, a sign of the influence she had in the journey of an all-conquering U.S. side.

After their win on Sunday in Lyon, France, fans started chanting for equal pay.

Film stars are considering dying their hair purple as a tribute; her showman-like open-arm celebration became a meme.

Ellis herself made history with the victory, as the US retained their title to win a fourth World Cup.

But will the big win end the criticism she's receiving for her political activism, since some people feel one has nothing to do with other. But the women have indisputably played skillful, entertaining football.

She has played for seven clubs across three continents, winning the NWSL Shield with Reign FC on two occasions, as well as the French top division with Lyon.

Fans in the bar were quick to show support for this World Cup's Golden Gall victor.

Rapinoe said FIFA's decision to allow the men's Copa America final and Gold Cup showpiece to take place on the same day as the women's final was "unbelievable".

"Now we need to win in 2020!"

The idea is to never quit", said Eddie. "She's such a gracious young lady, great sportsmanship", he said to CNN . I have a lot of energy, and I'm used to playing two matches a day [in the junior tennis circuit]".

Meanwhile, one of her teammates, Ali Krieger, expressed support for Rapinoe's refusal to go to the White House and said she wouldn't attend either. Despite sustained pressure by the US, the Dutch defense and goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal kept them off the scoreboard for the entire first half, marking the first time in this tournament that the USA failed to score in the first 15 minutes of the match. In fact, at the podium, she used the spotlight to highlight her team's fight for equal pay.

He went on to promise a White House invitation to the team "win or lose". "We've put on the most incredible show that anyone could have asked for". "A little public shame never hurt anybody, right?"

Of course, 158-cap Rapinoe isn't the only star of the USA's side - far from it, in fact.

US defeated Netherlands 2-0 to make it back-to-back titles on the global stage, with Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle scoring the goals in the second half.

Amid a growing outcry over the pay disparity between the men's and women's players, Infantino said that he wants to expand the field of teams for the next World Cup in 2023 from 24 to 32 and double the prize money to $60 million.

"I would like to see that, but you've also got to look at the numbers", Trump said, according to a White House pool report.

Ellis herself has faced much criticism despite having now taken the USWNT to a pair of World Cup crowns, with the most vocal coming after their surprise loss to Sweden in 2016 Olympics.

"I've got a party to get to, y'all", she quipped, before assuming her position in front of the microphone.

"Overall, I thought we had the better of the game. I think it's a testament to the quality on the field, I don't think everything else is matching that". "We're such a proud and strong and defiant group of women". "How can Federation Internationale de Football Association do that?"

Rapinoe is a vocal critic of Trump and has already stated that she would refuse any visit to the White House while he remained in office.
