Megan Rapinoe Responds To Criticism Over USWNT Goal Celebration

Alex Morgan sets a scoring record and shakes World Cup

But the 33-year-old Rapinoe said the champions were happy to snatch the goals record from Germany as they go in search of their fourth world title. Here's a little somethin' somethin' to have floating around in your cargo shorts to help you keep up in SOCCER CITY USA!

The ruthlessness of the US team is what every other side in France should aspire to have too. That's 24 teams total for all us English majors out there.

Matheson, who has represented Canada over 200 times, added: "The US is fully capable of blowing out teams and of course at the World Cup you're not going to hold back".

Morgan, who will turn 30 in three weeks, put aside the microphone for the most lopsided 90 minutes in World Cup history, for men or women. That's something we've talked about with our federation and our sponsors.

HOW TO WATCH-Most of the games are at 6 am, 9 am and noon here in Portland. I love it. But the soccer gods can be cruel and vindictive. I've also been known to catch the game at my desk while the rest of the office thinks I am passionately working on a spreadsheet. All of the games are on FOX SPORTS and the United States of America games are generally on "regular" FOX TV. "I couldn't have dreamt of scoring five goals in a World Cup".

Solo was asked whether celebration critiques were counterproductive to growing the women's game and the current equal pay for equal play movement. Here's the deal: Each team gets three points for every game they win and one point for every tie (AKA draw). After each team plays each other in the group stage, the top two teams of each group and the four best third-place teams advance to the round of 16. Speaking to FOX Sports, Rapinoe brushed off the criticism, saying that her team's only crime was "an explosion of joy".

Following his arrest, the 18-year-old was booked into the county jail on a single count of aggravated criminal trespass. She disappeared on May 29 and was found safe the next day in Nashville and returned home.

The hosts, coached by Corinne Diacre, cruised to a 4-0 win over South Korea in their first outing last Friday and are hoping to build on that against the Norwegians in Nice at 1900 GMT in one of 13 sold-out games in the tournament so far.

"To the people sending me death threats, let me set the record STRAIGHT!", she wrote on her verified Twitter account. You literally just got here.

"I didn't really think about that while we were playing but right when we walked off". I demand medals, plan a parade, and kiss strangers. As a goalkeeper, I don't know how you deal with that many goals. But some critics contend the team could have been a bit more subdued given the score.

#1 Check out your local teams!

Long before she blistered the nets Tuesday night with five goals, Alex Morgan had taken a leading role in the run-up to the Women's World Cup with her voice and presence away from the soccer field. Be there for the action! The US took no prisoners but this is the World Cup, why should they? And hell, check out the badass ads that folks are making with respect to women's soccer.

Just get on board folks, even if it's just for a game or two. I think some of it is to do with the fact that they aren't the most popular team out there - there's this perception that the United States of America are arrogant and everything is excessive and over the top with them. See you there, sweeties!
