‘You can’t win without gay players,’ says USA’s World Cup hero Megan Rapinoe

She has been caught up in a war of words with US President Donald Trump and scored two goals against host France to lead her side to the semifinals of the Women's World Cup.

Then after the game, Rapinoe, according to several outlets including the Guardian in the UK, proclaimed: "Go gays. You can't win a championship without gays on your team. It's never been done before, ever. That's science, right there."
