Winning a World Cup sure can be life changing.
Just ask Hanson, Mass. native Sam Mewis.
The United States women’s national team midfielder played a pivotal role in Team USA’s 2019 World Cup victory over the Netherlands in July. Mewis served as the honorary captain at Sunday night’s New England Revolution game at Gillette Stadium, where she talked about what life has been like since winning the championship.
“Life has been great,” she told NBC Sports Boston’s Naoko Funayama during the game. “It’s been super exciting, I think seeing just the impact the victory has had and getting to experience the whole thing with my teammates and my family is wonderful.
“Everything’s just been super exciting and I’m still kind of basking in the moment.”
We can’t wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve for years to come.
