      If women were paid as much as men then fifa will have to shut down the women side result of bankruptcy. If men were paid as much percentage as women they will get more then double of what they get now.

            No offence but women’s football isn’t as good and doesn’t bring nearly as much revenue

              So the u15 Dallas boys team beat the women's national team..... I'm sure the USA mens judo team can beat the USA world baseball classic team as well in a number of events. They are dominant in their respective fields and possess's the athleticism that can outmatch a general baseball team on many contests. the us women's team is dominant in the women's international bracket (their respective fields) as Dallas u15 academy is dominant in their bracket and respective field. There's a reason why there are different brackets for different events for different ages and different sexes. Even though Dallas U15 Boys Academy outmatched on the pitch this does not take away from the United States women's national teams accomplishments of dominating the world in their respective competitive bracket. On a side note I'm sure those bickering have never played a full 90 on the pitch and endured the training leading up to it. With that said, way to go ladies, thank you for bringing the world cup home again, USA!

                The problem is that most sports are generally watched more by men and men have been doing sports before women. So when a person having watched men play kind of feels bored to watch a female play cause the excitement and energy isn't so electric as in a men's game. Many women don't generally watch a lot of sports as well therefore the viewership for a woman's world cup is very low. For a men's game the stadiums are most full but for a women's game not even half the stadium is packed. That's because no one is interested in watching. If women want to argue about equal pay then women have to make a effort and watch more sports especially female sports. The female population in the world is more than the men's. You can't force a man to watch a woman's soccer match if he isn't interested. The US women's football team may be more popular in US but hardly anyone else in the world knows about it and US isn't a major football playing nation anyway.

                                Men's soccer stadiums are full and sold out...women's aren't sold out. NOT rocket science. They are already successful and have alot of money. They should be grateful for living in a country that has given them the opportunity...BUT INSTEAD THEY DISRESPECT MY FLAG!...and everyone is like oooohhh they are fantastic!! Disgraceful.

                                      They only want more pay and you should apparently acknowledge the fact that jimmy himself doesn't give a damn about football (soccer as some people might call it)... He is only doing this for the views and i can bet he doesn't even watch these women in their club games which would go for the next 4 years...

                                        jup you won
                                        it took you 52 states to make up 1 team
                                        but congrats
                                        just for the fun of it send 52 teams next time with players only from the states they were born in
                                        lets see how far you get , and do this with all sports
                                        after all you do not see 1 team from the states within europa etc
                                        but by number of inhabitants to make a team it would be fair don,t you think ?

                                          Last time I checked top female models get paid a hell of lot more than their male counterparts...why? Because they generate more money. It’s not that hard a concept. Male sports generate more money and get paid accordingly. When women’s sport grows to a level that is generating the same level of money then by all rights they can demand the same pay. I don’t see Jimmy Kimmel saying he should be on the same pay as a woman who hosts a less rating tv show

                                              It's a very silly illogical argument. Seemingly, just trying to drive the concept of feminism. Men's football generates more income than women's football. How then should the players be paid equal amount.!! Isn't this supposed to be common sense if we look into the commercial side of it.

                                                  The female victim complex is so strong... and it's sad to see the entire mainstream media feeding it and pushing this propaganda.

                                                    Fun fact: had this "amazing" women's team played in the men's league, they'd never had scored a single goal. They'd have lost every game 20-0.

                                                        They're already paid a higher percentage of the revenue they bring in than the men are. So they are, in fact, overpaid.

Over decades men's work hard developing techniques skills etc. and built the core for younger generation to learn including women. And now you wanna an equal pay? The level ain't the same if females get double, men should get double the quadruple payouts. That's how it's going to work. Dear Megan, are you sayin you wanna taste the shortcuts? If you really want the amount of mens payout today, you gotta do workloads for decades pass to your 10 generations. Then you can say you deserve it. For now women football is not the same level just yet. You gotta earn that respect first. It is what it is ain't easy as you may seems. Football is the most anticipated sports on the planet. So get yourself together.

Spain played an amazing game and scored the only official goal, while the US needed two soft penalties to score. France looked stronger and they were pushing hard. The US are a great team, but the playing field has levelled a lot more. They scraped by a fair bit in this WC and are not the dominant force they used to be.

U15 kids team can beat y’all, I doubt that they could beat a men’s professional national team. The goalkeeper in the national team would break a sweat trying to save a single shot from their team, let alone even have a chance for a shot.
