The US Olympic soccer team was once again humiliated at the Tokyo Olympics, this time falling to Canada and falling out of the running for the gold medal in the process.
As The Daily Wire reports:
The U.S. women’s soccer team took another upset on Monday morning, losing to Canada for the first time since 2001 and getting knocked from gold medal contention.
The women’s team, ranked number one in the world and expected to take home the gold, lost 1-0 in the semifinal contest.

The single goal was scored by Canada’s Jessie Fleming late in the second half, a penalty kick that sneaked by backup goalkeeper Adrianna Franch.
“Carli Lloyd — one of several legendary American players on the Olympic roster this year — crouched on the field, holding her head in her hands when the final whistle blew Monday,” The Washington Post detailed. Team USA now has no chance at gold, a feeling Lloyd no doubt was reflecting on.
Former President Trump has previously spoken out against the the US women’s soccer team, blaming their failure at the Olympics on the team’s wokeness.
