They should absolutely do whatever they want to do, and should not be forced to go.

I know they're not being forced, but everyone should have a choice.

Me personally, I'm not very into politics, but I'm all for standing up for what you believe in.

And I know that's what they're doing.

So, if they don't want to go, they should not go." 7.

MATCH ENDS WITH U.S. DEFEATING NETHERLANDS 2-0 AND FANS START CELEBRATING STORY: Fans packed into the Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass (DUMBO) in New York and celebrated the United States winning a record-extending fourth women's World Cup Sunday (July 7).

The U.S. team secured a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands as second-half goals from Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle confirmed their status as the leading power in the women's game.

Just a handful of orange-clad Dutch fans were on hand as the New York crowd was dominated by U.S. boosters.

The defending champions struggled to gain dominance for an hour before a Rapinoe penalty kick, her sixth goal of the tournament, broke the deadlock and a fine individual effort from Lavelle in the 69th minute put the outcome beyond doubt.
