  • Sullivan Tire would like to give praise and congratulate USA’s women’s soccer team on winning the 2015 FIFA World Cup! The United States defeated Japan 5-2 in a rematch of the most previous Women’s World Cup final which took place four years ago.

    The USA was on fire from the beginning of the match scoring four goals in the first half. Carli Lloyd was dominant and notched the fastest hat-trick in Women’s World Cup history in just 16 minutes! Lloyd scored her first two goals in front of the net and the third was a booming shot from half field that beat the Japanese goal tender who was caught too far away from the goal. Lauren Holiday and Tobin Heath were also able to score goals to propel USA to a dominant victory over Japan. As time ran down near the end of the match, veterans Christie Rampone and Abby Wambach were subbed in to play what will be the last match of their World Cup careers. After the game ended and USA claimed victory, the two veterans were the last to walk across the champion’s stage and hoisted the World Cup trophy together to rejoice victory with their teammates and the inspired American crowd.

    Soccer: Women's World Cup-Final-Japan at United States

    Lloyd won the coveted Golden Ball which is given to the top player in the tournament. She was able to score six goals in seven games and also tally an assist. Though the USA dominated offensively in the final game, credit needs to be given to the great American defense throughout the entire tournament.  The back line of Becky Sauerbrunn, Ali Krieger, Julie Johnston, Meghan Klingenberg, and goaltender Hope Solo only allowed three goals during the seven games played in the World Cup. Solo was able to win the Golden Gloves award given to the best goalkeeper.
