"We all feel the same, that we don't feel respected. Players had to take unpaid leave and some are now not able to sustain training because they don't have the time because of the money lost in China. We are all grateful that we went to the World Cup but realistically we can't sustain the level of progress because of employment issues."

-- Forward Eniola Aluko on the travails of players on the England national team that reached the quarterfinals of the Women's World Cup in September. Since returning home, players say they have been unable to train properly since they have to work overtime to make up for lost wages while representing England in China, where they were paid only 40 pounds ($80) a day.
