Three years ago today, the USWNT won the 2019 World Cup โ€“ their second straight title.

The title put them on par with Germany as the only teams to repeat as champions in back-to-back World Cup events.

Megan Rapinoe scored first for the USWNT โ€“ the same Megan Rapinoe whoโ€™s receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday โ€“ and was followed up by a goal from Rose Lavelle.

Both Rapinoe and Alex Morgan were among the tournamentโ€™s top scorers, with six goals apiece. Rapinoe was later named the tournamentโ€™s best player, winning both the Golden Ball and the Golden Boot.

Morgan won the silver boot while Lavelle was awarded the Bronze Ball.
