The United States Women’s soccer team are world champions once again. The U.S. women’s national soccer team defeated the Netherlands 2-0 yesterday in the championship match to win their fourth world title and are now back to back champions.
The U.S. women’s national soccer team proved their dominance at the 2019 Women’s World Cup by defeating the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday in the championship match.
The victory in Lyon, France capped off an unrivaled run by the soccer powerhouse. They have now taken home the trophy in 1991, 1999, 2015 and now in 2019. At the close of the game, some members of the crowd began chanting “equal pay” as a show of support for the U.S. Women’s National Team, which is in a legal fight for their pay to match that of their male counterparts. Meagan Rapinoe was awarded the Golden Boot for the most goals scored in the shortest amount of time as her and teammate Alex Morgan both scored six goals and had three assists, but Rapinoe’s goals were scored in 394 minutes compared to Morgan’s 445 minutes. After the victory, social media lit up with congratulations from all over the country.
