U.S women's soccer team wins its 4th World Cup by beating Holland, 2-0

After weeks of uproar over its sportsmanship and elaborate goal celebrations, the United States women's soccer team has every reason to party after winning a fourth World Cup with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands in Lyon, France on Sunday.

'We're crazy,' captain Megan Rapinoe told Fox after the U.S. won its second consecutive World Cup title. 'That's what makes us special.'

Following a scoreless first half, Rapinoe scored a penalty kick in the 61st minute and Rose LaValle added a goal of her own in the 69th minute.

'It's unbelievable,' Rapinoe continued. 'Just to know all of the people in our group that put in so much work, obviously the players – we have all our friends and family here – it's surreal.'
