Why did they have most of their starters not starting?  I thought this was all about goal differential!?! 

 

Goal differential is over. That’s why they did what they did. This team is going to the next round. No need to burn everyone out in a game they are going to win. Next game is more real, though the winner will play France, which is a tough reward for the victor.

Now they have to beat Sweden to clinch a high seed (likely top seed) in the knockout rounds.

Besting Sweden lines them up to play France. That’s not ideal but who cares. Got to beat the best to be the best.

I thought it was great Thailand got one goal against Sweden.

So, there were two games in group play?  Both against bottom rung teams?  And, goal differential was going to come into play?

There are still two more games to play in the group. Also he meant since they put a big number up in the first game, that they have essentially secured any goal differential tie breaker, hence his stating it is over.

 

Edit: I think the next game against Sweden is the last game, so only 1 more game left.

My guess is that the goal differential tie breaker never came into play.  And, it never was going to.

Thats very likely and highly probable, but why leave any doubt?

Goal differential was almost a certainty to not come into play vs Sweden after the US won 13-0, and by the time the US game against Chile started, Sweden had beat Thailand 5-1, so the goal differential issue was over.

The US Women out-earn or nearly earn the same as the men. They make coin. The rest of the women's teams don't but in the US, they are gold. (And the US Men suck donkey dick.)

I can't read the article.  Does it say where the money comes from that pays the men and the women?  Instead of "we want equal pay" and then have no numbers - like every article I've seen so far, I'd like to know how they get paid.  Does it come from FIFA, the national governing body (whatever that might be), etc....................If it's done on just a national level, it seems the women should get paid equal if not more, since they seem more popular.  But, if it's a world thing, then the men bring in way more money.

 

One thing that has always bothered me about the USWNT is that they don't give a crap about their pro league.  The 1999 team talked about it so much - having a successful pro league for women................But, when it comes down to it, the elite players only care about the elite players.

They are paid by the US Soccer Federation which is a member of FIFA. Match bonuses, camp stipends, tournament winnings etc are all set by the individual country.

But, is the amount they get from FIFA for the mens vs. womens different, because FIFA defintely gets more revenue from mens as opposed to womens.

This is true.  So, I think it needs to be determined what part of what pie these teams are getting.

2018 men’s WC had a pot of $400 mil

women's pot is $30 mil  

 

This is strictly prize money allocated by FIFA

Thanks.   Seems that maybe this has something to do with the women getting paid less by the national authorities.

Holy crap, did anyone watch Argentina/Scotland?  Scots led 3-0 with 16 to go. Argentina got it to 3-2 then got a penalty at 90. Save by Scotland, but VAR awarded a second penalty kick because the goalie moved too early. They made that one. First time in WC history a team made up a 3-goal deficit.

On to Spain. US by far the class of the tourney so far. No one close. Morgan’s possible injury worth watching.

Go team USA winning 2-0 

 

No one has tested them yet. There was a fair amount of grumbling going in that they had not looked as sharp and other teams were rising. So far the opposite looks true. And at every match, they are the draw of the tournament as far as fans go. It’s a funny higher pitch rise of excitement on any breakout—sounds like a Beatles concert. Funny. 

 

Hopefully France, post Spain, can give them a game. I don’t see Spain giving them trouble.

Is it Americans doing the cheering or just soccer fans in general?
