As a proud supporter of U.S. Soccer, Chevrolet is elated to congratulate the U.S. Women’s National Team on its record third Women’s World Cup™ victory.
The road to the Cup was not an easy one, with the U.S. Women drawn with 5th ranked Sweden and 10th ranked Australia in the group stage. After topping Group D, the U.S. dispatched Columbia and China to set up a semifinal showdown with #1 ranked Germany.
The U.S. relished the role of underdog, putting forth an amazing defensive display in a match that saw Germany miss a penalty, while Carli Lloyd converted for the U.S. in the 69th minute. Lloyd inspired the U.S. again in the 84th minute as she completed a penetrating run into the box and made a perfect cross to Kelley O'Hara, who coolly tapped in the finish for a 2-0 U.S. victory.
In a rematch of the 2011 Women's World Cup Final, the U.S. sought revenge against reigning champions Japan and didn't let the opportunity slip through their hands, winning the game and the tournament in front of a massive crowd at the BC Place Stadium in Vancouver. This marks the U.S. Women's third World Cup victory - the most of any country since the tournament began in 1991.
Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s National Team on a thrilling World Cup victory and for bringing the Cup home to the U.S. Check out some behind the scenes videos with the U.S. Women below and see all the other ways Chevrolet is supporting soccer and turning play into beautiful possibilities at ChevroletFC.com.
