USWNT celebrate Fourth of July ahead of Women's World Cup Final
Sunday July 5th, 2015

The U.S. women's national team may be preparing for the biggest game of their lives in Canada, but that does not mean they are going to forget to celebrate Independence day.

Several of the players on the team took to social media to let the men and women back in America know they are still enjoying the Fourth of July.

Heather O'Reilly posted a full team selfie from the USWNT's practice as they prepare for Sunday's World Cup final against Japan, while Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, and Megan Rapinoe got in the holiday spirit and sent well wishes back home from Canada as they get ready to try and win the United States' first World Cup since 1999.
