World Cup Champs! USA Earns Third Star
July 6, 2015 Press, Team USA
Building off a quick start and a first half hat trick from midfielder Carli Lloyd, the WNT beat Japan last night at BC Place in Vancouver, winning the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup and earning the title of World Champions. The USA is now the only country to win three Women’s World Cups and is the country to score the most goals (five) in a WWC final — no other team has scored more than two. The WNT will return to the USA for a pair of friendly matches against Costa Rica on Aug. 16 and Aug. 19 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Chattanooga, Tennessee, respectively, before embarking on their nationwide celebration tour (details to be announced).
