FIFA slammed over treatment of women's game
FIFA.com article referenced American Alex Morgan's looks
FIFA is being criticized for its treatment of the women's game. Again.
Critics took aim on social media Tuesday after FIFA.com referenced American forward Alex Morgan's looks in an article posted in advance of the United States' match against Germany in the semifinals of the Women's World Cup.
The second sentence of the piece referred to Morgan as "a talented goal scorer with a style that is very easy on the eye and good looks to match, she is nothing short of a media phenomenon."

One Twitter user asked if FIFA would be commenting on Ronaldo's looks on the day of a World Cup semifinal.
FIFA was also previously criticized after the match tracker on FIFA.com referred to the players by male pronouns during the tournament-opening match between Canada and China in Edmonton.
