She also leads the USA in assists this year with seven. She is tied for 11th place on the all-time WNT goals list,” the USWNT announced before the game, making no mention of Rapinoe’s benching.A spokesman for the U.S. team told The Los Angles Times that he couldn’t disclose the reason for Rapinoe’s benching, unusual the Times noted in that when Becky Sauerbrunn and Julie Ertz did not start earlier in the 2019 World Cup the media were told why.In Press’ defense, she is considered among the fastest and fittest players on the U.S. side and offers a potentially better matchup against England’s Lucy Bronze, who many consider the best player in the tournament thus far.Barring an undisclosed injury or some other factor, Rapinoe, 33, could be used off the bench for offensive firepower. But reporters in Lyon noted Rapinoe did not even warm up with the rest of the team before the game. Rapinoe at the bottom of the picture.

Carlie Lloyd has three and Samantha Mewis, Rose Lavelle and Lindsey Horan have two each.
