The United States remains on top of the world.

Thanks to Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle, the U.S. women's national team beat the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday to repeat as Women's World Cup champions.

It's the fourth championship for the U.S., which also won in 1991, 1999 and 2015. Only in this one, the Americans broke the record for most goals in a single Women's World Cup with 26.

Rapinoe scored on a penalty kick in the 61st minute, thanks in part to video assistant referee technology, while Lavelle's blast past Netherlands goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal, who stood on her head with four first-half saves, doubled the U.S. lead.

People around the world gave the U.S. team the props it deserved:
