NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP) -- Soccer star Megan Rapinoe scores again, but this time its with a book deal.

Penguin Press announced Thursday that Rapinoe's book, currently untitled, will be published in Fall 2020.

Penguin called the book a "perfect vehicle" for an "honest, thoughtful, unapologetic" take on everything from soccer to nationalism to gay rights.

A division of Penguin Young Readers will also work on a Rapinoe book for middle graders.

Rapinoe became an international celebrity this summer after helping lead the U.S. women's soccer team to a World Cup championship.

She also openly denounced President Donald Trump and said that if invited to a White House Celebration, she would refuse to attend. 

Trump tweeted in response that Rapinoe should "never disrespect our country, the White House or our flag."
