The United States' Women's World Cup celebrations continued as the team returned home on Monday.

USA defended its title and claimed a record fourth Women's World Cup with a 2-0 win over Netherlands in the final. Immediately following Sunday's final, the team began celebrating in the locker room. A number of players, including Harris, continued capturing the team's celebrations, which sent social media into a frenzy.

 

The posts included Alex Morgan dancing in the locker room and on top of tables later on Sunday.

But the celebrating and dancing did not stop there. As soon as USA touched down, the party continued. USA will formally celebrate its title in New York City on Wednesday.

The route will follow the famed ticker tape parade line. These historic parades are traditionally held along Broadway, which is also known as the Canyon of Heroes.
