Matt Gaetz: US shouldn't have a national soccer team if players won't stand for national anthem

A Republican congressman suggested the United States dispense with having a national soccer team after the U.S. Soccer Federation voted to repeal a 2017 policy that required players to stand during the national anthem.

U.S. Soccer's board of directors voted on Tuesday, reversing a rule adopted after star midfielder Megan Rapinoe knelt during the national anthem before a match in 2016 in solidarity with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who began the controversial protests against police brutality and racial inequality.

I’d rather the US not have a soccer team than have a soccer team that won’t stand for the National Anthem.

You shouldn’t get to play under our flag as our national team if you won’t stand when it is raised.
