United States Wins Women's World Cup 2019
The United States Women's Soccer Team has won the 2019 Women's World Cup.
The United States has won its record fourth Women's World Cup title and second in a row.
Goals by Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle carried the Americans to a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in Sunday’s final at Lyon, France. The game was scoreless until Rapinoe converted a penalty kick in the 61st minute, eight minutes before Lavelle doubled the lead.
Rapinoe’s tally came after a video review showed that Alex Morgan had been fouled with a kick to the shoulder in the penalty area.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a parade in the team's honor on Wednesday. The procession will go up a stretch of Broadway that's hosted many celebratory parades known as the "Canyon of Heroes."
