Megan Rapinoe, who championed social justice and fought for women’s equal pay in a 17-year international career, will play her final match for the United States on Sunday against South Africa.

The 38-year-old striker has scored 63 goals in 202 appearances for the national team entering her farewell match at Chicago, having helped the US win titles at the 2015 and 2019 Women’s World Cups and the 2012 London Olympics.

“People may think that my career coming to an end would bring sadness, but when I think back on the past 30-plus years of playing this game, my overriding emotions are joy and gratitude,” Rapinoe said.

Rapinoe, FIFA’s 2019 Women’s Player of the Year, also was among the leaders of the US women’s successful fight with US Soccer for equal pay and conditions with the men’s squad.
