The Behind-the-Scenes World Cup Moments You Definitely Don't Want to Miss

The Behind-the-Scenes World Cup Moments You Definitely Don't Want to Miss

Team USA is in it to win it — on and off the field. And so are the fans.

The stakes are getting higher with each World Cup match and on Monday, the USWNT was victorious against Colombia. Up next? The quarter-final match against China on June 26.

But all fans know that the best part of a major sporting event (besides taking home the “W”) is the shared experience. The collective gasp when the opposing team almost scores, and the unspoken rule of high-fiving everyone on a big play.

To celebrate Team USA, here are a few our of favorite behind-the-scenes moments from last night’s game, fan fashion and the all-star athletes themselves. The countdown to the next game day is on.
