Brazil wins World Cup after beating Germany 3-2
Posted On July 6, 2021
The United States defeated Germany 3:1 in a World Cup qualifier to win the trophy for the first time.
The result means the United States has reached its first major trophy since 2008 and also clinched the automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup.
“It’s an incredible achievement,” said Abby Wambach, who scored the winner.
“We all want to win, but we also want to be proud of the way we played.”
Wambach also celebrated after the game, saying she was “so proud of my team.”
The United States and Germany had played for the tournament last month in the quarterfinals, but the German team went down 1-0 in the first leg in the final.
After the match, Wambacha was seen talking to a woman wearing a mask as she walked down the tunnel after the match.
The woman said she had to leave as soon as the match ended.
“This is so sad,” Wambackas father said after the victory.
“It’s a loss for our sport, for our country, for the world.”
The World Cup will be held on July 25-27 in South Africa.
