The U.S. Women's National Team is still the best in the world.

The ladies on the American soccer team shut out the Netherlands on Sunday to win the 2019 FIFA World Cup. The victory made for the USWNT's fourth world title.

Co-captains Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Carli Lloyd could be seen throwing their arms up and hugging it out on the field after the final goal. 

Social media lit up with celebrations and congratulations from fans, fellow athletes and celebrities.

Actor George Takei offered a "brava" to the women, and Mandy Moore said they made the country "immeasurably proud."

Many fans shared their favorite gifs from the tournament, like when Morgan sipped tea after scoring a goal against England or when Rapinoe opened her arms wide in pride.

Politicians far and wide came out to wish the team the best and for claiming another title for America.

The Women's World Cup has been held every four years since 1991, meaning there have only been eight tournaments so far. And the U.S. team has won half of them.
