LYON, France. (WFIE) - It’s back-to-back FIFA Women’s World Cup titles for the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) after defeating the Netherlands on Sunday.

A 2-0 defeat of the Netherlands gave the USWNT its fourth World Cup title and second consecutive.

Megan Rapinoe’s penalty kick goal in the 62′ gave the US a 1-0 lead.

Just a few minutes later, the USWNT would tack on another goal with a strike from the left foot of Rose Lavelle.

The only other country to win back-to-back FIFA Women’s World Cup titles was Germany in 2003 and 2007.
