Megan Rapinoe, an American soccer player, is receiving online abuse after missing a penalty kick against Sweden. The team was ultimately eliminated from the FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday as a result of the defeat.

Watch Video:

They lost in the round of 16 against Sweden after a close penalty shootout. The team’s illustrious history of consistently making it to at least the semifinal round of competition was destroyed by this unexpected result.

As Sweden fought to keep control of the game, the United States had the most opportunities. The exceptional goalkeeping skills of Zecira Musovic prevented players like Lindsey Horan and Alex Morgan from taking advantage of great opportunities.

Musovic had no need to make a save as the game moved to a penalty shootout, despite her confidence. When Megan Rapinoe, Sophia Smith, and Kelley O’Hara all failed to hit their intended targets with their penalties, the American team’s frustration level rose. Lina Hurtig of Sweden won the competition in the end.

She was made fun of by a number of X users and soccer fans for the incident, which ultimately resulted in the team’s elimination. “Megan Rapinoe should shut up about transwomen competing in women’s sports, she can’t even beat the Swedish women’s team,” one user wrote. “And she wants men to play women’s sports if they behave like women? There is a women’s world cup, but it is not for trans.”

“I’m happy we lost. Megan Rapinoe and what she represents have grown old to me. She despises America and has done nothing but damage to it. awfully represented us. Never again should you don a USA jersey.” Added a different user.

As one commenter put it, “And America is out of the Women’s World Cup thanks to Megan Rapinoe. #GetWokeGoBroke.”
