She's the best female footballer in the world and she said "no" to playing for the Norwegian national team in this year's World Cup. Here is why Ada Hegerberg is making a statement:

    "There are so many things that are bigger than soccer." Alex Morgan and the U.S. Women's Soccer Team are more than just athletes — and they won't be silent about the issues that matter to them. 👏🇺046

    Good for her. She doesn’t understand economics. The Women’s World Cup brings in less than 10% what the Men’s World Cup does. However the female players make 20-30% of what the men do. Technically, the women are being overpaid. They receive a higher percentage of the profits than the men’s team does. I really wish people could understand basic arithmetic and economics.

    if womens soccer brings in as much money as male soccer teams then they deserve the same pay, but we all know this is not the case so NO, woman dont deserve the same wages as male players. Its unfair to make owners of womens soccer teams have to pay the same as owners of mens soccer teams, just doesnt make sense, same reason why paying all femal actors the same as male actors, pay is based on draw power, the actor that makes people go to the movies gets paid more, if you want everything the same, your communist

    I personally think it's a poor decision, if one has the honor if representing your country in a tournament held every 4 years I'd play for free..
