US Women’s Soccer Team Stunned by Spain’s Unlikely Win Amid Protests

The USWNT team was handed its second consecutive defeat Tuesday night as Spain scored an unlikely 2-0 win.

The Spanish team was definitely underdogs, given the fact that many of the team’s top players are currently embroiled in a battle with Spain’s federation over who should be coaching the team. At least 15 players refused call-ups during the international window as a show of protest.

Protesters are aiming to have the women’s game professionalized in Spain.

The game against Spain marked the first time the USWNT has allowed multiple goals in consecutive games since early March 2019, in matches with Japan and England.

Vlatko Andonovski said of the loss, “It’s really disappointing. There’s no question about it. We have a winning mentality and when we don’t win, it hurts. It hurt all of us. It is a tough moment for us as a team.”

The US hadn’t lost two straight games since the March 2017 SheBelieves Cup, when the team lost two games to England and France.


  • The fact that they lost to Spain’s b-team is really concerning. That’s two in a row. I think they are tanking on purpose.

  • You mean an awesome team of pink haired woke lesbians that got beat by a team of middle school boys couldnt beat a team that actually practices and wants to play the game for the game not for the press? Weird…
