Tens of thousands of fans rose to the streets of New York on Wednesday to welcome the US World Champion.
The US beat Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday in the final in France to win the competition for the fourth time and to hold the title, which won in 2015.
Floaters and open buses carry players wearing black T-shirts with the words “World Champion” in gold letters on the streets of Lower Manhattan to a ceremony at the town hall where they are tickers.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the player in one of the cars and then hosted the US team at a ceremony at City Hall to give them “Keys to the City.”
Some fans chanted “equal pay” when the players came to the scene, citing the fact that the women’s team suing the US Football Federation asked for the same fee to their fellow men.
On Tuesday, Megan Skinner, who was the leading scorer in the competition and won the Golden Ball for being the tournament’s best player, said he was sure there were no US players in the US who would visit Donald Trump White’s home.
