US Women's World Cup win sets off immediate calls for equal pay

Rapinoe, the pink-haired USA captain who grabbed world-wide attention on and off the field, scored in the 61st minute after a video review determined Stefanie van der Gragt had fouled Alex Morgan with a kick to the shoulder in the penalty area.

As of Sunday, the US women's team has won four World Cups - more than any women's soccer team in the world.

"Overall, I thought we had the better of the game". The commercial is intense but very moving, and I dare you not to get goosebumps while watching it. "The near future looks good, but the far future, we need to improve our facilities for further development", she added at the post-match press conference. "I just felt that we would have our opportunity".

Ellis' phone started ringing while she was trying to answer a question.

Having also led the U.S.to victory in Canada four years ago, Ellis becomes the first female coach in history to win back-to-back World Cups.

The youngster has been at The Hawthorns since he was six, and was said to be a shoe-in for progression to the first-team. According to him, he considered Barcelona's Ousmane Dembélé "better than Neymar".

It is three decades since Wiegman jumped at the chance given to her by Anson Dorrance to go and play at the University of North Carolina.

But perhaps the best part of the victory was the unearthing of some of Rose LaVelle's old tweets that made her an even bigger - and more relatable - hero than she already was.

"I may be biased but I feel that from top to bottom, especially with the support staff we have and the technical staff - we're world class". Ellis earned her degree from William & Mary in English literature and composition.

"I'd had zero opportunity to play football over here, so that is really what America gave me", she said before the US defeated England in the semi-finals.
