Popular YouTuber accuses Megan Rapinoe of deliberately sabotaging USA and playing poorly to disrupt USWNT's World Cup campaign

YouTube star Benny Johnson accuses Megan Rapinoe of intentionally playing badly and missing a penalty in the Women's World Cup.

In a surprising turn of events, popular YouTube star Benny Johnson has leveled serious accusations against Megan Rapinoe, the legendary player of the United States women's national soccer team. Johnson, known for his outspoken opinions on US sports and politics, has accused Rapinoe of intentionally playing poorly and missing a crucial penalty in their Women's World Cup loss to Sweden.

The defending champions had faced consecutive draws against Portugal and the Netherlands before going head-to-head with Sweden in the pre-quarterfinals. After a goalless match, the game was decided by a penalty shootout.

Unfortunately for the USWNT and Rapinoe, the penalty shootout turned into a nightmare. The 38-year-old player was the first to miss a spot-kick, sending the ball over the goalpost. This incident prompted Johnson to express his disbelief on Twitter, claiming that Rapinoe intentionally sabotaged Team USA.

Rapinoe, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in USWNT history, now finds herself in a villainous role after the penalty miss. Prior to the Women's World Cup, she had announced her retirement following the tournament. However, her final match ended in disappointment.

The loss to Sweden eliminated the top-ranked USWNT from the tournament before even reaching the quarterfinals. Rapinoe, visibly dejected, referred to her penalty miss as a "dark comedy" and a "sick joke." She expressed her gratitude and joy for her career but acknowledged the sadness of it coming to an end.

Rapinoe's attacking prowess and expertise in set pieces have solidified her status as a legend in the game. In the victorious 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup campaign, she was named the Best Player of the Tournament. However, this time around, fans witnessed a different outcome as the USWNT failed to reach the semi-finals for the first time in their history.

The accusations made by Benny Johnson have ignited a debate among fans and followers. While some may question Rapinoe's performance, others argue that it is unfair to accuse a player of intentionally sabotaging their own team. Regardless, the Women's World Cup has provided unexpected twists and turns, leaving fans and experts alike in awe of the unpredictability of the beautiful game.
