18 Hilarious Tweets About USA Winning the Women's World Cup
One nation. One team.
Twitter Had the Best Reaction to Team USA Winning The Women's World Cup
It has been quite the eventful Women's World Cup this year, and the previous champs held onto their title once again.
In case you've been living under a rock, Team USA won their fourth Women's World Cup on Sunday, July 7 in a 2 - 0 victory against the Netherlands. It wasn't an easy road to the finals, but our ladies did it.
This tournament was a little different than years past, mainly because the women were fighting for something more than another star on their shirt—they were championing the need for equal pay. The men's team makes a considerable amount more than these women, who are arguably better than their male counterparts and even bring in more money for U.S. soccer than the men.
While the chants for equal pay echo across social media platforms, Twitter really set the bar high with their reactions to Team USA's historic World Cup victory.
We've rounded up some of the best for you to enjoy right now, as you relive the win over and over and over again. Go Team USA!

the USWNT preemptively turned down an invitation to go to the white house and all of MAGA was like “actually go win the world cup before you talk shit” and the USWNT was like “okay you buncha fucking idiots” and then went out AND WON THE WORLD CUP 😂😂😂😂😂 what an all-time flex— Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) July 7, 2019
