Megan Rapinoe's future in the field of soccer may be coming to an end.
The 36 year old forward helped solidify The National Women's Soccer Team's bronze medal at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics by scoring two goals against Australia for a final 4-3 score. Although she originally hinted that it would be her final game and that her retirement was imminent, with an interview at ESPN, she stated that things were still up in the air.
"Just in terms of my whole career, I don't really know yet. I need to take some time to think about it," She said.
"They always say, 'You'll know when you know,' but it's not really like that, because you could kind of keep going, and it's like 'Aw yeah, you've accomplished so much, you'll be fine stepping away.' But the conversation is always anguished in your mind. Or people just don't think about it. I've been thinking about it a lot."
During her career, Rapinoe has one two World Cups, two Olympic Gold Medals, and has scored 124 goals with the US Women's National Team.
Her teammate, 39 year old Carli Lloyd, who also scored two goals in the match against Australia, announced her retirement yesterday, to take place at the end of the season.
