US women's national football team forward Christen Press said the team is willing to do whatever it takes to win, during a press conference at the Lyon Training Center at Décines, on Monday, before the team's training ahead of the semi-finals clash against England for the Women's World Cup, on Tuesday.
“We’re here to win and we haven’t had any questions or hesitations about that. That’s our... Еще intention,” said the forward, adding that the US team is “one of the best attacking groups in the world.”
Referring to recent controversies between player Megan Rapinoe and US President Trump about her refusal to go to the White House in case of a US victory in the tournament, goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher said to have a lot of respect for the colleague.
“She’s a leader for this team, she stands up for what she believes in, she speaks out about that and I think that’s brave of her to speak her mind and to stand up for what she feels it’s right, what she believes,” said Naeher.
Footage shows Rapinoe dancing during the training and playing around with team mates, who she had called out to join her in her protesting. Alex Morgan was seen doing kick-ups.
