The United States Women’s National team pulled off one of the most dominant World Cup runs in recent memory by capping it off with a 2-0 victory over Netherlands in the World Cup Final Sunday.

Megan Rapinoe broke open the scoring in the latter portion of the first half with a penalty-kick goal, and minutes later teammate Rose Lavelle pulled off some open-field magic to make it a 2-0 match.

Over the course of seven World Cup matches, the Americans led for 431 of the 630 total minutes, and they never once trailed. Just a stunning display of prowess that we won’t soon forget.

Following USA’s victory in the World Cup Final, fans and analysts shared their reactions on social media.
