Thousands of fans gathered together on the streets of New York to welcome back the United States women’s World Cup winning team, MySportDab reports.
The USA beat the Netherlands 2-0 in Sunday’s final in France to win the competition for a fourth time and retain the title they won in 2015.
Floats and an open-top bus took the players, who wore black T-shirts emblazoned with ‘World Champions’ in gold letters, through the streets of Lower Manhattan to a ceremony at City Hall.
The team players danced and cheered as they were welcomed to the stage at City Hall.
“We’re so excited to be here because we enjoy watching the team on TV and we enjoy, like, feeling proud,” one young girl who attended the parade told CBS2’s Cindy Hsu.
“I’ve learned to never give up on your team and to always have fun during the game,” another young fan said.
