U.S. Women's Team Arrives Home After Winning World Cup
- Published on: 08 July 2019
- The U.S. women's national team arrives in Newark, New Jersey, following their Women's World Cup title win in Lyon, France. The team will then proceed to a media event in New York.
New York City is ready to celebrate the U.S. women’s national team for its victory in the Women’s World Cup.
Shortly after the team’s win Sunday in Lyon, France, Mayor Bill de Blasio took to Twitter to announce a parade in the team’s honor on Wednesday.
De Blasio told the team, “You have inspired the entire country — and New York City knows how to celebrate champions.”
The parade will go up a stretch of Broadway that’s hosted many celebratory parades known as the “Canyon of Heroes.”
Megan Rapinoe won the Golden Boot and raised her arms in her by-now familiar victory pose when she collected it.
Rose Lavelle was honored with the Bronze Ball award and Alyssa Naeher earned the Golden Glove for the Women’s World Cup’s best goalkeeper.
Rapinoe’s penalty shot put the defending champions ahead in the 61st minute of the final.
Midfielder Rose Lavelle’s solo goal made it 2-0 in the 69th, as she powered to the edge of the penalty area and hit a low strike.
The United States has won the Women’s World Cup for the fourth time after beating the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday night.
Forward Megan Rapinoe’s coolly taken penalty, following a video review, put the defending champions ahead in the 61st minute.
Midfielder Rose Lavelle’s fine solo goal made it 2-0 in the 69th, as she powered to the edge of the penalty area and hit a low strike.
Rapinoe’s sixth goal moved her even with teammate Alex Morgan and England’s Ellen White as the tournament’s leading scorers.
Rapinoe, who recovered from a right hamstring strain to play, got an ovation from the U.S. fans when she came off in the 79th.
