"While @USWNT continues to dominate on the world stage & generate tremendous revenue for @ussoccer, the women make only a fraction of what the men's national team is paid".

The US Women's soccer team has won four World Cups in total since the early 1990s, while the men have won zilch.

It was the most-viewed match this season, but a decrease from the 2015 final. "We'll look at that".
