While massive tifos have almost become the norm for important United States men's national team matches, they have been far less common on the women's side. Maybe Wednesday's display will help spark a change. Here's what American Outlaws put together for the friendly against Brazil:
It's a subtle dig, but it's there if you look close enough. The words read "Earn it to own it" and "Our stars shine bright." Simple enough, right? And to most it's pretty straightforward.
But what you may not realize is the Brazil women's national team wears the same crest as the men, complete with their five stars from their World Cup titles. Thing is, the Brazil women have never won the World Cup. The best they've ever done is a single second-place finish in the 2007 tournament.
There was no official word from AO on this subtext, but it seems a reasonable enough conclusion.
