Not on equal terms with colleague counterparts yet

Six days ago the United States of America women team has lost a legal battle against their male counterparts. The district court at California rejected the request from the four-time World champions who are claiming that are paid less than their national team colleagues.
Among other things, the final report says that since females has received so many awards that is 'almost' the same compensation as salaries. Also the judge in this case has refused their accusation of being treated unfairly in terms of travelings, accommodations and trainings.
Despite this (off pitch) defeat, the women football team are not discouraged with this shocking decision and will continue to pursue fighting for an equal social payment on the next trial scheduled on 16 June.
