The US Women’s Soccer team defeated the Netherlands 2-0 during the World Cup championship on Sunday. Immediately after the game anti-American team captain Megan Rapinoe and another player gathered for a celebratory photo op. Teammate Allie Long attempted to join in while holding an American flag. Rapinoe, however, was having none of it, and pushed the flag away.
Allie Long responded by…dropping the American flag on the ground.

The video clearly shows another player, identified as Kelley Mohara, racing to pick up the flag while Long pushes her away from the photo op.
This is absolutely shameful and disgusting behavior from women that are supposed to be representing their country on the world stage.
At least there’s one person on the US Women’s Soccer team who has some respect for the flag.
