The United States Women’s soccer team won the award for best 2015 team at the ESPYS on July 15 and this just put the icing on the cake of their 2015 FIFA World Cup win!
We are so overjoyed with the success and recognition of the US Women’s National Team for winning the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup! The women were in full force at the ESPYS and accepted the award for “Best Team” on July 15! The beat out some pretty big names like the New England Patriots and Chicago Blackhawks.
Team captain Carli Lloyd, 32, who led the ladies to a 5-2 victory over Japan, with her hat trick (3 goals) in the game was there along with Abby Wambach, Olympic gold medalist, and member of the U.S. women’s soccer team, to accept the award! It was such a big deal considering it’s the first World Cup victory for the Americans since 1999!
Amy said: “On behalf of whole team couldnt thank everyone who coudnt be here did it for america and fans we love u so much and im so happy that we have these girls to celebrate this with this has been best 10 days of our lives. Hopefully you can celebrate with us later tonight.”
The teams these ladies beat out? Along with the ones we told you about, the NCAA Women’s Basketball team, Connecticut Huskies, NBA Golden State Warriors, and FBS Ohio State Buckeyes!
HollywoodLifers, we are so happy for the US Women’s soccer team!
