U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Eliminated From the World Cup After Megan Rapinoe Blows Penalty Kick

In stunning fashion, the United States Women’s Soccer team has been eliminated from the World Cup after former co-captain Megan Rapinoe blew a penalty kick.

While the loss cannot be solely put on Rapinoe, who was playing in her last World Cup, the team was up 3-2 in the penalty kicks as she sailed hers wide.

The loss to the #1 team in the world and favorite to win the tournament came in the round of 16 against 3rd-ranked Sweden.

Many took to Twitter to mock the social justice activist for her failure to deliver for Team USA, who ultimately fell 5-4 on penalty kicks after the game was scoreless for 120 minutes of regulation play.

“The US women have been knocked out of the World Cup! Megan Rapinoe was a major reason they lost. She absolutely shanked her penalty kick. The keeper didn’t have to make a save. Pay them more.”

“Not only did the anti-American WOKE woman’s soccer team lose today. Megan Rapinoe missed a penalty kick that would have sealed the win for the USA. Talk about a win-win.”

Former USWNT player Carli Lloyd, who was instrumental in previous World Cup tournament victories, had criticized the team’s play after they barely made it past the group stage.

Instead of humbling themselves and taking Lloyd’s insight seriously, current team captain Lindsey Horan called her comments “frustrating.”

Sweden will now take on Japan in the quarterfinals.
