U.S. Women’s Soccer Wins the World Cup—Athletes, Celebs, Politicians Pour Out Congrats!

Last night, the U.S. women’s soccer team made history with a 5-2 victory over Japan in the final match of the Women’s World Cup. It was an epic 93 minutes to say the least—thanks to midfielder Carli Lloyd’s spectacular hat trick early on in the game, and because this was actually a rematch. Back in 2011, the U.S. lost to Japan during a gut-wrenching penalty shoot out. Tack on our wins in 1991 (against Norway) and 1999 (against China), and the U.S. women’s soccer has now become the first team ever to win the World Cup three times.

Athletes, celebrities and politicians took to Twitter to say congrats, including Vice President Joe Biden, who was one of the 53,341 in attendance at BC Place Stadium:

What a win for Team USA! Great game @CarliLloyd! Your country is so proud of all of you. Come visit the White House with the World Cup soon.
