Social media reacts as U.S. beats Netherlands 2-0 to win second-consecutive title

World Cup

The U.S. women’s soccer team are World Cup champions, yet again. In a 2-0 win over the Netherlands on Sunday, the United States scored two goals to repeat as World Cup champions and the fourth time in team history.

After going scoreless in the first 61 minutes, a reckless, high kick against Alex Morgan was ruled a penalty in the box. Megan Rapinoe notched a goal at the far-post to give the U.S. a 1-0 lead.

Just moments later, in the 69th minute, Rose Lavelle stripped the ball and carried it up the field for a left-footed 17-yard shot in front of a sellout crowd in Lyon.

Here’s a look at how teams in the Pacific Northwest reacted to the USWNT’s stunning victory over the Netherlands in the World Cup final.
