USA Women's National Team Wins Fourth FIFA World Cup

Their second consecutive win.

On July 7, the United States’ National Team celebrates victory by taking home the trophy against the Netherlands in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup with the score of 2-0. Despite the team missing a few moments in front of the goal for the first half of the game, Rapinoe scored the first point of the match on a penalty kick at the 61-minute mark finishing the tournament with six goals and three assists. CBS News reports that Megan Rapinoe was awarded the Golden Boot Award for leading goalscorer and the Golden Ball as the top player in the tournament. “We’re crazy and that’s what makes us so special. We just have no quit in us. We’re so tight, and we’ll do anything to win,” Rapinoe said after the victory.

The second goal was then scored by up-and-coming star player Rose Lavelle eight minutes after Rapinoe’s point. “She’s superstar, not even in the making, she’s straight up superstar at this point,” Rapinoe said.

With the first Women’s World Cup dating back to 1991, manager Jill Ellis has continuously defended her undefeated streak gaining USWNT‘s fourth overall World Cup championship. Ellis has also become one of the first to win the competition twice in a row.
