Wembanyama played more aggressively against Spurs in the second Summer League game in Las Vegas.

The 38-year-old Rapinoe declared on Saturday that her fourth World Cup would be her last and that she would formally retire at the conclusion of the National Women’s Soccer League season.

Megan Rapinoe, a star of the US women’s soccer team who won two World Cups and an Olympic gold medal, is about to retire following a distinguished career in which she never shied away from using her platform to raise awareness of social concerns.

At the completion of the National Women’s Soccer League season, Rapinoe, 38, will formally retire with the OL Reign and make her final World Cup appearance her last.

When the Women’s World Cup begins on July 20 in Australia and New Zealand, Rapinoe and the US team will be going for a third straight victory. On Sunday in California, the US plays Wales in its final exhibition game before departing for the World Cup.

Rapinoe expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to play in this manner in San Jose, California, prior to the match. “I realize that it is exceedingly uncommon for sportsmen of any caliber to be able to depart on their own terms, at the time they choose, and in a way that seems genuinely serene and settled for them.

In order to focus on the goal at hand—winning another World Cup—I simply wanted to do it now and, to be honest, kind of get it out of the way before we travel down to New Zealand.
