Megan Rapinoe and USWNT Celebrate World Cup Win With Epic Parade
U.S. Women's National Team Celebrates World Cup Win With Parade in NYC
This morning, members of the U.S. Women's National Team celebrated their World Cup win with a ticker tape parade down the "Canyon of Heroes" in Manhattan. This was the team's fourth World Cup win, after victories in 1991, 1999, and 2015. Along with the tournament trophy, individual players also took home prizes, including Megan Rapinoe's Golden Ball and Golden Boot, Alex Morgan's Silver Boot, and Rose Lavelle's Bronze Ball. The monthlong tournament in France saw many records broken by the United States, including most goals in a single Women's World Cup match (13, USA v. Thailand), most goals scored by an individual player in a single women's game (Alex Morgan, five, USA v. Thailand), first coach to win two World Cup titles (Jill Ellis), most goals in a FIFA Women's World Cup tournament (26), and most Women's World Cup victories (four). After coming back from France Tuesday, the women finally had the chance to celebrate their victory on U.S. soil with the parade in New York City.
