The first 15 minutes were so crazy, it almost seemed like a repeat of last year’s Brazilian meltdown against Germany. Goals came about every five minutes, and Carli Lloyd’s hat-trick was the fastest in all of men’s and women’s World Cup history.
Remember, “play like a girl” means score a hat trick in the first 15 minutes of a WC final. Thanks to @carlilloyd for the clarification.— Chris Shiflett (@shiflett) July 5, 2015
I’m afraid if I tweet I might miss another goal #USA 🇺🇸⚽️— Breeja Larson (@BreejaLarson) July 5, 2015
Forward Carli Lloyd stole the show and is now leading the race to see which female face will appear on the next $10 bill.
Rosa Parks on the 20$ bill. Abby Wambach on the 10. Issue 3$ bills with Carli Lloyd. Hanx.— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) July 6, 2015
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.— President Obama (@POTUS44) July 6, 2015

Between this victory and recent men’s team successes against Germany and the Netherlands and US officials indicting FIFA’s corruption, we’re unarguably in the middle of one of the greatest-ever periods for US Soccer.
All hail #the15ers.— Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) July 6, 2015
The kiss heard round the world that came when Abby Wambach took to the stands and planted one on her wife to celebrate her status as a World Champ.
Beyonce, Tom Hanks, and just about every celebrity on Twitter was cheering for the team to pull through.
