Behind the cover shoot: USA Women's World Cup team
Monday July 13th, 2015

Sports Illustrated honored the U.S. women's national team's World Cup victory with a one-of-a-kind collection that gives each player and head coach Jill Ellis her own SI cover with the World Cup trophy. 

The cover shoot took place on Friday both before and after the team's ticker-tape parade in New York City. It was shot by Simon Bruty.

In the above video, you can see behind the scenes coverage of the cover shoot. It includes appearances by Abby Wambach, Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Meghan Klingenberg, Tobin Heath and more, as well as parade footage.
