(Chicago, IL)  --  After weeks of criticism, US Soccer is responding with a bombshell:  The women's national team players have made more than the men since 2010.  Federation President Carlos Cordeiro announced Monday the women's players were paid 34-million by the federation in salaries and bonuses between 2010 and 2018, while the men were paid 26-million dollars.  The number does not include monies paid by FIFA for World Cup bonuses, which would propel the men to 41-million-dollars while giving the women just an additional five-million.  These numbers do not include money from bonuses following the women's 2019 World Cup championship, but also the men did not receive a bonus for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, as they did not qualify.
