The United States soccer team has gone through plenty of issues in the past few years. The men missed the last World Cup and remain in the midst of a shakeup to try and get back. But the most tumultuous thing currently with them is the ongoing lawsuit over equal pay for the women’s team.
It’s an incredibly divisive issue, and it has not cost US Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro his job at the top. He posted on Twitter on Thursday night that he was resigning from the post, citing his lack of preparation and care over the lawsuit mentioned above. This came after the women had protested by wearing their jackets inside out ahead of their 3-1 win over Japan in the SheBelieves Cup on Wednesday. It’s all been coming, and the shoe finally dropped.
