U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Wins 2019 World Cup
Team USA took home the championship title at the 2019 Women’s World Cup after beating the Netherlands on Sunday, July 7.
It’s the U.S. women’s team’s second consecutive win and fourth win overall. They’ve previously won in 1991, 1999 and 2015.
“It’s surreal,” NBC News quoted co-caption Megan Rapinoe as saying after the win. “I don’t know how to feel right now. It’s ridiculous.”
Rapinoe also took home the Golden Boot, which goes to the top scorer of the tournament.
The team has made headlines recently, not only for their stellar performance in the World Cup, but also in their struggle for equal pay to their male counterparts and their outspoken calls for LGBTQ rights.
