There are plenty of things that the U.S. Women’s Soccer team have managed to achieve over the past few years. And this year in particular the team has gone and done what the men’s soccer team has been unable to do for a very long time and that is win the world cup, the biggest award and trophy when it comes to football. That said, the success that the U.S. women’s soccer team has been able to achieve so far can all be traced to the hard work that they all have shown. From the likes of Hope Solo who has been an inspiration to many, the team came out with an agenda and they worked hard to see to it that they fulfill it.
In recognition of the great work and the hard work that they have put up, the U.S. women’s soccer on Wednesday the 15th of July took home the award for “Best Team” at the annual ESPYS AWARDS. They saw of a strong challenge from NBA Finals winners, the Golden State Warriors, New England Patriots, Chicago Blackhawks, Ohio State Buckeyes and lastly the Connecticut Huskies.
Among present so as to accept the award was the captain for the U.S. women soccer team, 32-year old Carli Llyod, who helped the team defeat Japan in an entertaining football match that ended 5-2 in favor of the U.S. During that particular game, the 32-year old captain scored a hat trick. Abby Wambah, an Olympic gold medalist as well as a member of the U.S. women’s soccer team was also in attendance so as to accept the award.
