The 15ers!

It’s not too early for a TBT, is it? I am still trying to believe that that game was real and not just a magical dream! How can it be that in just 16 minutes 16 years of wait was over!!!

The newly crowed champions, the 15ers!!

Since I was eleven, I have dreamt of cheering on the Stars and Stripes in a World Cup final. While it was awesome to cheer them on in the group stage (and see Abby score her final World Cup goal), the final was absolutely unreal! 4-0 in the first 16 minutes, yeah it’s gonna to be hard to top this performance!

WWC2015, Final ticket

Don’t mind me, I am just checking things off my bucket list…

WWC2015 - USA Flag

The energy inside the stadium was absolutely electric, American fans were everywhere! Even though we were up 4-0 16 minutes in, we still had 75 minutes of soccer to enjoy. Plus being as superstitious as I am, I couldn’t let myself celebrate until the final whistle.

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! So many happy (and loud) Americans when the ref finally blew the final whistle!

Such a great moment – while others celebrated with their families Meghan Klingenberg and Becky Sauerbrunn celebrated with the fans by taking a victory lap around the stadium! I though it was very classy:) And Abby followed suit after the medal ceremony!

It’s been four days and I still cannot believe it! As soon as I got home I watched and re-watched in slow motion all of the goals. Since then I have been in a USWNT interview vortex:) This gave will forever be a cherished memory!

WWC2015 - VP and Sasha Obama

Last one, the best photo I could get of Vice President Biden and Sasha Obama:)

P.S. I definitely rank Carli Lloyd’s performance as one of the greatest championship performances of all time (regardless of sport and gender).
