Thousands of fans cheered on the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team earlier today at L.A. Live in downtown L.A. as part of a celebration rally for the team snagging the 2015 World Cup title.

The rally, which was free and open to the public, kicked off at 11 a.m., and the entire team went up on stage, giving speeches and taking turns raising their trophy in the air.

"You guys have been the most awesome of fans throughout the entire World Cup," Hope Solo, U.S. Women’s Soccer team goalkeeper, told the crowd. "You stayed behind us. You believed from day one all the way through Game 7. I’m honored to be American. I’m honored to be on the team, and I’m honored to play for you guys and the country.”

The team obliterated Japan's team 5-2 on Sunday in Vancouver, Canada, sealing their victory as World Cup champions. Their win marks USA's third World Cup title and third Women's World Cup since 1999.
