The U.S. Women’s National Team dominated the Netherlands, 2-0, to take home America’s second straight and record fourth global soccer title in France. Outspoken Megan Rapinoe, who earned the Golden Boot for tournament goals and assists, made the first point on a penalty kick in the 61st minute, while Rose Lavelle drove up the center to score again eight minutes later. The Dutch side earned their second-place standing, keeping USA scoreless longer than any other opponent.
What now? Fans in the Stade de Lyon chanted “Equal pay!” after the victory, supporting team members, who receive far less than male national players, in their lawsuit against U.S. Soccer.
