In Megan Rapinoe’s first interview after her final FIFA Women’s World Cup, the retiring forward discussed both criticism of the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) and the world catching up.
“What I’ve realized for a long time is that we’re playing two games at the same time,” Rapinoe told the Atlantic this week.
“We want these other teams to be paid equally, and to have the resources that they deserve, and to not be subjected to misogyny and racism and sexism,” she continued.
“If that comes at the expense of our own dominance, yeah, we want that. Maybe that’s a novel concept for some people, but it’s not for us.”
With the 2023 World Cup in the rearview mirror, the host country of the 2027 tournament has yet to be announced.

The host will be named in May 2024, giving the winning country a short runway to prepare.
The United States (U.S.) and Mexico are in contention in a co-hosting bid.
Other countries in the running are Brazil, South Africa, and a three-country bid by Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands.
