Ahead of their Tokyo 2020 quarter-final clash against the Netherlands, the U.S. women's national soccer team (USWNT) were handed $1 million from a small California-based athletic apparel company so they can get a taste of being rewarded like their male counterparts as they fight for equal pay.

After watching the recently-released "LFG" documentary that chronicles the USWNT's battle for equal pay, Title Nine founder and Chief Executive Missy Park was so "ticked off" she decided to write the biggest cheque in her company's 32-year history.

"This women's soccer team has dominated the sport like no other, they really are a national treasure," Park told reporters in a video interview. "And watching that documentary, the U.S. Soccer Federation are paying them like second-class citizens. I was just like 'wow'."

The USWNT will put a financial matters to one side as they prepare to face the high scoring Netherlands side who bagged 21 goals in their three group F games with Arsenal player Miedema on song netting eight time for the Dutch. The USWNT campaign got off to a sticky start with a humbling 3-0 defeat to Sweden before Vlatko Andonovski's side got back on track with a comprehensive 6-1 win over New Zealand. A 0-0 draw with Australia once again raised question marks of the pre-tournament favourites.

The Netherlands suffered a placid path through to the quarter-final stage with a 10-3 win over Zambia followed with a 3-3 draw against Brazil. The 'Oranje' signed off their group F activity with another goal-fest, this time China were on the wrong end of a 8-2 drubbing.
