Strong Alone, World Champions Together: USWNT Wins Third Star


With a stunning 5-2 victory over Japan in the 2015 Women's World Cup Final, the U.S. Women's National Team was once again crowned World Champions. The game was far from boring, with the U.S. scoring the first four goals in 20 minutes. Carli Lloyd was the star of the game, scoring the fastest hat-trick in World Cup Final history, including an incredible goal from half-field. Lauren Holiday and Tobin Heath also found their way onto the score sheet. Lloyd received the Golden Ball and Silver Boot awards at the end of the game, and Hope Solo was also awarded the Golden Glove award. This victory marks the third World Cup championship for the Women's National Team, and a third star will be added above the crest along with the other two stars from 1991 and 1999. 


The black & gold "World Champions" t-shirts will be available in The Soccer Shop in women's and youth sizes toward the end of July.
