Saying that only a team with a true championship pedigree could bring home the Copa America, the U.S. Women’s National Team has decided to take the reigns from the men’s team.
“Don’t get us wrong, we are happy for them that they’ve made it this far,” said striker Alex Morgan. “It’s really cute how they’ve given it their all, but the U.S. needs to win this tournament. That’s where we come in.”
The women’s team, winners of the last World Cup, said they would consider going in disguise for the game. However, they noted just wearing the men’s jerseys would probably be enough as “most people wouldn’t recognize those guys anyway.”
“Honestly, can you imagine what will happen to them if they have to play against Messi?” said midfielder and total badass Carli Lloyd. “I like those guys, and I don’t want them to embarrass themselves. We are doing them a favor.”
