Quote of the day: Megan Rapinoe on fake turf in the USA

“We’re currently on a Victory Tour, playing matches across the country. Out of the 10 games, seven will be on artificial turf. In one stadium, we were literally picking up bolts from the turf before the match. I want as many people to see us as possible, but my ankles could use some nice, soft grass for once.”

– Megan Rapinoe, on artificial turf in the Victory Tour stadiums. She was quoted by The Players’ Tribune.
