The United States Women's National Team was ousted from the Women's World Cup after failing to defeat Sweden in penalties.
The defeat was Team USA's earliest World Cup exit in history. Megan Rapinoe, a tennis superstar, has now spoken out about her loss.
Megan Rapinoe had announced her intention to retire from soccer at the end of the World Cup before the event began.
She certainly hoped for a deep run in the competition, though. Rapinoe's missed penalty kick resulted in a 5-4 loss for the USWNT.
Rapinoe was angry with the loss, according to The Athletic. Team USA was eliminated from the world's largest event due to her miss during penalty kicks. Here's what she had to say about it.
It's a genuinely dreadful way to go out. Especially given her stellar performance for the USWNT during her career.
Megan Rapinoe, for example, has two World Cup victories under her belt. In any case, she's a sporting legend in every sense of the word.
But sometimes things just don't work out, as was the case for Rapinoe and the USWNT this year.
