Five prominent members of the U.S. women's national soccer team plan to file a federal complaint on Thursday charging U.S. Soccer with wage discrimination, The New York Times reported Thursday citing the players' lawyer.

The players, including Carli Lloyd and Hope Solo, key players on the reigning World Cup and Olympic champion team, will charge that the women's team is the driving economic force for U.S. Soccer, though its players are paid less than their male counterparts, the team's lawyer said, according to the Times.
