World Cup winners Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan say the US women’s football team will appeal against their defeat in their equal pay lawsuit.
Last week, judge Gary Klausner rejected the players’ claim that they are underpaid compared to the US men.
They had been seeking $US 66m in damages against the US Soccer Federation (USSF) under the Equal Pay Act.
“We were just shocked – we will definitely be appealing,” Morgan said.
Speaking to ABCs Good Morning America, she added: “This decision was
out of left field for us. I think for both sides it was very unexpected.
