She is sticking to her plan. USWNT star Megan Rapinoe knelt again during the playing of the national anthem, this time as the U.S. played the Netherlands in a friendly on Sunday night in Atlanta.
Rapinoe, who has been supporting Colin Kaepernick, knelt for the first time wearing the USA jersey on Thursday.
Though U.S. Soccer did not approve of Thursday, that didn’t stop her on Sunday. Take a look.
Now we have to wait and see if U.S. Soccer does something. Will there be a punishment? Carli Lloyd said before the match on the FS1 broadcast that it is a distraction. Are we reaching a point where U.S. Soccer is perhaps considering no calling Rapinoe up for future games to avoid what they believe to be a “distraction?” This seems to be just the beginning.
