USWNT Celebrates with Fans in Los Angeles Parade

Only two days after the USWNT won the world cup, it’s first stop was a celebratory parade in Los Angeles.

The women’s world cup is back in the U.S. and was hoisted Tuesday morning in front of thousands of fans.

Along with the cup, the champs presented black tees with gold lettering that read “world champions” and gold medals which they wore around their necks.

Every individual teammate was introduced and was welcomed with cheers and applause from the masses in attendance.

The recognition given by the fans to the players and coaches was reciprocated as the team gave a large thank you to the fans.

Head coach Jill Ellis thanked her staff and gave a shoutout to the fans.

“To every fan that had our back, that believed in us, thank you so much,” said Ellis.

“It felt like we were in the U.S.A.,” said defender Meghan Klingenberg.

Two time world cup champion Christie Rampone shared some praise for this team, “‘99 was great but 2015 was something special,” said Rampone.

Chants of “MVP” were given when Carli Lloyd took the stage and was given a standing ovation by her teammates.

“Every day so far it feels great to wake up as a world champion and that feeling won’t get old,” said Lloyd.

Before departing, the team left the crowd with a newer version of “I believe that we will win.”

Together everybody chanted “I believe that we just won.” The team will also be celebrating in New York City on Friday at 11 AM ET.
