      There's the issue. (I've bolded it) It's only sexist if you make it that way. It was never intended to be so why be negative and make it that way.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but all the women's team should be professional so won't be going back to any other job like non-league footballers do. Imagine the backlash if it was about the team going back to being hairdressers or salon workers. Same idea of focusing on male players who are plumbers or builders or bin men only again, can be considered sexist where as the other isn't.

      People are too quick to pull the sexism card without actual knowing what it means. It's a prejudice or stereotyping which is deliberately against a particular sex. That tweet wasn't sexist in the slightest. Can you interpret it as a little inappropriate, sure if you're a pessimist, but 'sexist' is a serious term that is thrown around all too easily and it should stop.

      Sorry mate, I'm with Diego on this one. The tweet was out of line. And while I get that the intent was in the right place, it was still a very bizarre tweet. No reason whatsoever to phrase it that way.

      Did anyone see that goal the American girl scored from the halfway line, it brought back memories of Alonso at Luton.

      Carli Lloyd! She was very off form in the group stages but was a beast in the knockout rounds.

      You'll very likely never see a tweet of that sort though. The tweet might have been kind at heart but was really out of place.
      Although not as bad as when FIFA had all those swimsuit models in the tight dresses carrying the medals and standing on the Podium when the handed out the Medals. Its annoying and was embarrassing. Those women went out and played 90 minutes of some of the best Football I've ever seen and then they tart it up with models in cocktail dresses. Uggghhh!!!!

      Had no idea Carli Lloyd was a Liverpool fan, also didn't realise she was 34.

      Carli Lloyd: I might consider Liverpool switch one day

      Carli Lloyd is probably the world's most famous women's footballer - and she has a love of the Liverbird, too.

      The robust attacking midfielder is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and the current FIFA Women's World Player of the Year.

      In July 2015, she won a World Cup final for the United States almost single-handedly, scoring a stunning 16-minute hat-trick in a 5-2 victory over Japan.

      With the Olympics in Rio looming large on the horizon, Lloyd is determined to extend her roll of honour further.

      However, she took time out from intense preparations to explain her love for Liverpool FC - in an interview you can watch for free via our official YouTube page below.

      During the chat, Lloyd, who currently plies her trade for Houston Dash, admitted she may one day be tempted by a possible move to Liverpool Ladies.

      "I honestly wouldn't rule it out," said Lloyd.

      "My plan is to play for another four years. I'm not ruling anything out about playing overseas - that would be cool. The Women's Super League is getting better and better. Who knows? Maybe I will end up there one day!"

      Explaining how she became a Kopite, Lloyd added: "I grew up in a small town in New Jersey which was a blue-collar town and I had to scrap for things like getting a football to play in the woods.

      "To me, that is kind of what Liverpool exemplifies - the blue-collar mentality; the sheer grit and the determination.

      "I wasn't born when they were the best team around, but it's just one of those things - when you kind of like the team you can relate to your personality - an underdog.

      "I've always been a Liverpool fan, in the good times, the bad times, it is great to be able to watch them play [on TV in the USA] and get some jerseys too.

      "Any chance I get I watch Liverpool. They are the only team I follow in the Premier League, which is great and I'm always rooting for them.

      "I just love everything that Liverpool stand for and 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. It's a phenomenal club.

      "I've yet to experience a live game but I will at some point soon!"

      Because the Breakers can't go down any further :laugh:

      But I'm really happy to see them get a win, especially with Matt Beard as coach.
