The night after the party, U.S. team delights in World Cup win

The night after a party to remember, the World Cup winning U.S. soccer team left their team hotel on Monday morning (July 8) still in the mood for celebration - and talking the need for equal pay.

Megan Rapinoe, who scored a penalty in Sunday's 2-0 final win over The Netherlands, told reporters in Lyon, France the team had a 'good party' the night before and that they couldn't wait to touch down in New York to celebrate with fans at home.

Rapinoe has captured attention throughout the tournament for her onfield performances and her willingness to speak on contentious topics, mainly equal pay with the men's game and her comment that she would not attend the White House if the team won, which drew the ire of President Trump.

Rapinoe heard fans chanting 'equal pay' during the final and said she hoped women will receive payment on par with men for winning the World Cup in future.

She also said she wanted investment into the women's game to continue.
