She said, “[However] things are steadily improving.”


Alexi Lalas, a Fox Sports analyst and 1994 FIFA World Cup member for the United States Men’s National Team, responded to Horan with a post on X.


“Therefore, having turned off a significant number of Americans who do not watch soccer, the #USWNT has apparently now set their sights on a substantial number of Americans who do watch soccer.” “A daring approach,” he penned on Friday.Therefore, it appears that the #USWNT, unsatisfied with having already alienated a significant number of Americans who do not watch soccer, has now set its crosshairs on a substantial number of Americans who do watch soccer. A daring strategy.

The USWNT captain is cognizant of the criticism. She is partially in agreement with it.


Regarding the remainder, well…


The exclusive interview between @itsmeglinehan and Lindsey Horan “From what I’ve heard, people have a better understanding of my football and the way I play,” Horan, 29, continued in her interview regarding competing in Europe. “This is the culture of France.” Everybody tunes in to watch football. “Everyone is familiar with football.”


Also, Horan argued that American supporters lack a complete understanding of what it takes to play for the national team.


“Within this team for a while, one must have experienced what the f— that entails… She stated, “It is among the most competitive national teams to be a member of.”The US Women’s National Team, led by Horan, a co-captain alongside seasoned forward Alex Morgan, will compete in Paris for the gold medal in the absence of Julie Ertz and Megan Rapinoe, both of whom have since retired.


Two years were spent in Serie A, Italy, prior to Lalas’s seven seasons in Major League Soccer.
