  • The Post notes Rapinoe did join the winning World Cup team when it visited Barack Obama in the White House in 2015.
  • Fox News points to a Post report from April that notes the Trump administration hasn't hosted many winning US women's teams.
  • Up next: All eyes will be on the US team Friday when it goes up against France in what NBC News calls "a much-hyped quarterfinal match." But we'll hear from Rapinoe before then, reports ESPN: She's set to talk to the media the day before the game.
  • In an opinion piece for USA Today, Nancy Armour faults the Hill for starting this all. "If you want to talk about fake news, this narrative being pushed by The Hill since the World Cup began definitely qualifies. Rapinoe not singing or putting her hand over her heart during 'The Star-Spangled Banner' is not a new development at the World Cup. Nor is it unique to when she plays for the US women. She has been peacefully protesting before all games for the better part of three years now."
