Before the World Cup began in New Zealand, Rapinoe had already said that the tournament would be the last she would play at the international level. Now, the organization pays tribute to her by making this match revolve around her. For quite some time, the attacker was the face of the team on and off the field, not only because of her goals, but also because of her activism at the forefront of the “equal pay” movement.
She is one of the few Americans to win the Women's Ballon d'Or in 2019 and be the fourth player with 200 international caps. She scored 63 goals, good for 10th in team history.
