Megan Rapinoe all set to hang up her boots

Two-time Women’s World Cup winner, the US international Megan Rapinoe has announced she will retire at the end of the 2023 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season. Rapinoe, an Olympic gold medalist from London 2012, will play in her fourth and final World Cup, which runs from July 20 to Aug. 20 in New Zealand and Australia.

Megan Rapinoe in this regard

Megan Rapinoe told reporters at a press conference ahead of USWNT’s friendly match against Wales, that she’s been able to have such an incredible career and this game has brought her all over the world and has allowed her to meet so many amazing people. She also said she feels incredible to have played as long as she has, to be as successful as they’ve been, and to have been a part of a generation of players who undoubtedly left the game better than they found it. To be able to play one last World Cup and one last NWSL season and go out on her own terms is incredibly special, she added.

She further stated that she wants to thank her family, for being by her side all these years. She also thanked all her teammates and coaches all the way back to her first days in Redding, on to college at the University of Portland and of course thanks to US Soccer, the Seattle Reign and especially Sue, for everything.
