USA Sweeps Japan in the Women's World Cup
The United States won 5-2 against Japan in the FIFA Women's World Cup soccer championship on Sunday.
Midfielder Carli Lloyd made history after scoring two of the fastest goals in the tournament’s history, and becoming the first player to score three goals in one game.
The last time the U.S. won the WWC was in 1999 against China.
Cheers could be heard booming from Vancouver and across the country on social media. Check out some of the reactions below from our MAKERS:

We're the champions! Congrats to #USWNT & Japan on an amazing game. And now the Golden Globes are next? I thought those were in January.
