SOUNDBITE 1 - Megan Rapinoe, US midfielder (female, English, 19 sec): "It's exciting to have, obviously you know, these huge crowds and the game growing as much as possible. But I think that the next step needs to be taken, otherwise you're just going to get these exciting moments that don't have any way to really be like fully realized or sustained." 29. SOUNDBITE 2 - Megan Rapinoe, US midfielder (female, English, 17 sec): "I guess incremental change is better than none at all, but for the resources and for the ability that I feel like FIFA has, to implement that change, I think that they're not doing nearly enough." 30. SOUNDBITE 3 - Megan Rapinoe, US midfielder (female, English, 15 sec): "I think there's two finals on the same day. Is that right? And the other tournaments going on at the same ... at the same exact time. I mean it's ridiculous and disappointing to be honest." 31. SOUNDBITE 4 - Alex Morgan, US striker (female, English, 20 sec): "The World Cup is gonna be a really great one. I think France is going to put on an amazing tournament and I'm looking forward to FIFA as well stepping up and really seeing this World Cup as a guideline for the future of women's football." 32. SOUNDBITE 5 - Jill Ellis, US head coach (female, English, 21 sec): "We're delighted, we're healthy and we're ready to get this thing rolling. I think it's gonna be a remarkable World Cup. I think the the level of competition, four years on from the last one, has exponentially increased, the different teams now rising, and it's going to be a very open World Cup and we're excited to go out there and attack it."
