3 Things You Missed During The World Cup Final

Alex Grimm / Staff

1. The World Cup crowd started a chant of “Equal Pay” after the United States Women’s National Team defeated the Netherlands with a score of 2-0. This chant was in response to the recent news that the United States Women’s National Team filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation.

2. After the game ended, United States Women’s National Team members celebrated in small groups scattered across the field. Megan Rapinoe ran over to the stands to celebrate with a kiss from her girlfriend, WNBA star Sue Bird.

3. The Golden Boot, given to the player who scored the greatest number of goals, was awarded to Megan Rapinoe while the Silver Boot was awarded to Alex Morgan. Although both players scored an equal number of goals during the tournament, Rapinoe accomplished this feat with less playing time, according to Sporting News.
