The United States women’s soccer team deserves to party like it’s 1999, or 1991, or 2015.
Team USA shared videos of the jubilant dressing-room celebrations, which followed the 2-0 win over the Netherlands on Sunday in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup final. The triumph is USA’s fourth world championship and the first instance in which they successfully defended their title.
Tournament MVP Megan Rapinoe missed the start of the celebration because FIFA selected her to undergo a postgame doping test and she also had to speak to reporters. Rapinoe’s teammates reserved a special confetti and champagne shower for the player whose powered their run through the knockout rounds and scored what proved to be the winning goal in the final.
Of course, the obligatory team pictures followed.
Party on, Team USA, and never change.
