VARIOUS OF TEAM POSING FOR PHOTOGRAPH STORY: Swigging champagne and beer, the victorious U.S. Women's National Soccer Team returned to the United States on Monday (July 8), stepping off a plane and on to the red carpet.

Team members sang "We are the Champions" before being greeted by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy as they celebrated their return to the United States.

The United States won a record-extending fourth women's World Cup with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands on Sunday (July 7) as second-half goals from Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle confirmed their status as the leading power in the women's game.

A jubilant Megan Rapinoe, who scored on a penalty kick in Sunday's (July 7) match in Lyon, France, hoisted the trophy for photographers.

Rapinoe has captured attention throughout the tournament for her on-field 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 U.S. President Donald Trump.

New York city mayor Bill de Blasio said the team would receive a "ticker tape parade" down the 'Canyon of Heroes" in Manhattan on Wednesday (July 10).
