Several female members of the US soccer team turned their backs on the US flag earlier this month while 98-year-old WWII veteran Pete DuPré sang the national song on a harmonica.
In East Hartford, Connecticut, the US women’s soccer team was playing an exhibition game versus Mexico as a pre-Olympic sendoff game before flying to Japan.

Former DNI Richard Grenell was then reprimanded by the US Soccer Federation for writing about the irate soccer players’ unacceptable show of disrespect.
It wasn’t true, they stated.
This is not true. No one turned their back on WWII Veteran Pete DuPré during tonight's anthem. Some USWNT players were simply looking at the flag on a pole in one end of the stadium. The players all love Pete, thanked him individually after the game and signed a ball for him.

The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) wanted Americans to assume that these ladies, who had knelt for the National Anthem for years, had suddenly become pro-American.

Sweden stunned the US Women’s Soccer Team with a 3-0 win in the women’s soccer competition on Wednesday.
They’ve been kicked out.
The Americans, who were ranked No. 1 in the world and were heavy favorites to win gold in Tokyo, were undefeated in 44 matches leading into the tournament. Sweden, rated No. 5, has been something of a nemesis for the US team in recent years. The Swedes eliminated the Americans in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the earliest U.S. exit ever. Making the most dramatic Olympic exit ever, by taking a defensive stance.
Sweden and the United States drew 1-1 in Stockholm in April, ending a winning streak that dated back to January 2019, when the Americans lost to France in the World Cup build-up. It was the US team’s only tie of the season.
Wow! The US Women's Soccer team loses their Olympic opener to Sweden. Sweden snaps the American women's 44-match unbeaten streak with a 3-0 victory. @YamsTV has the details. #KOMONews #Tokyo2020 pic.twitter.com/d5lAFRK92a
