We did it again! Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach, and the rest of the team smashed in four early goals to trip up their opponents, Japan.

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.

Forward Carli Lloyd stole the show and is now leading the race to see which female face will appear on the next $10 bill.

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.

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.

And now that the US has earned its third star, it’s time for the USA to celebrate! The World Cup is back home where it belongs!

Don’t mind us.
