Rachael McKriger joined me at Cupka’s Cafe 2 where the American Outlaws Steel City chapter gathered to watch the United States Women’s National Team capture its fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup victory by defeating the Netherlands, 2-0, in Lyon, France on Sunday.
The celebration began immediately, and we were there to capture some of the excitement on the South Side.

Be sure to watch/listen to our post-match reaction Facebook Live broadcast which includes interviews with some members of the American Outlaws, along with our takeaways from the match, which was knotted at 0-0, but broken open in the second half, as Alex Morgan drew a penalty, which was converted by Megan Rapinoe, then only seven minutes later, Rose Lavelle capped an impressive tournament with a spectacular run into the edge of the box and finish to give the USWNT the decisive edge against a tough Netherlands side.
