- Published on: 09 July 2019
- The FIFA Women's World Cup U.S. soccer champions were all smiles as they returned home on Monday, touching down in full-party mode, a day after clinching their second consecutive World Cup title with a 2-0 win against the Netherlands. Co-captain Megan Rapinoe said the team isn't inclined to go to the White House if invited but did accept Senator Chuck Schumer's invitation to Congress.
Rapinoe and Alex Morgan doubled down outside the team's New York hotel, reiterating that they "don't want to go to the White House" if invited.
Rapinoe had courted controversy during the tournament, saying she would reject any eventual invitation to the White House drawing a Twitter blast from President Donald Trump.
The players will be honoured with a 'ticker tape' parade on Wednesday in lower Manhattan, culminating at City Hall where they're expected to receive the Keys to the City from Mayor Bill de Blasio.
