US Soccer Press Release
A sellout crowd of 57,900 fans that thundered “USA” chants throughout the game turned up at Stade de Lyon to witness the U.S. Women’s National Team claim its record fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup title with a 2-0 triumph over 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro champions the Netherlands.
Megan Rapinoe, who was awarded the Golden Ball as the tournament’s best player and the Golden Boot as its top scorer with six goals and three assists in 428 minutes played, opened the scoring for the USA in the second half from the penalty spot.
Rose Lavelle, who was awarded the Bronze Ball as the tournament’s third best player, scored the USA’s second goal of the Final as the USWNT wrote another amazing chapter in the women’s soccer history books as the highest scoring team in Women’s World Cup history with 26 goals scored. The victory makes the USA only the second nation to successfully defend a World Cup crown.
The USA’s historic World Cup title triumph that was celebrated by thousands of fans across France and the United States who attended matches and tuned into games in record numbers throughout the tournament comes 33 years and a continent away from the U.S. Women’s National Team first ever program win, a 2-0 result against Canada in Blaine, Minnesota on July 7, 1986.
This is the third World Cup in which the USWNT has never trailed throughout the tournament, a feat also achieved in 1991 and 2015.
The U.S. is unbeaten in its last 17 Women’s World Cup matches (14W-3D), winning the last 12 in a row. They are the only team to win 12 consecutive WWC matches, besting Norway’s run from ’95 to ’99. Seven of the USA’s 12 wins have been by multiple-goal margins.
