What a thriller.
In a quarterfinals clash in front of thousands of soccer fans in France, the U.S. women’s national soccer team took down the host nation with a 2-1 victory.
Megan Rapinoe could not be stopped. The national team co-captain scored both goals for the U.S., one of which came in the opening five minutes of play and another during the 65th. Rapinoe has five goals in the World Cup thus far.
The U.S. is now headed to Lyon, where it will play England in the semifinals and be one round closer to a fourth, World Cup title.
Before we move on to the Tuesday’s matchup, let’s take a look at some of the best moments from the semifinals on social media, including a lot of love for Rapinoe’s dominant performance.
