The Internet has been simply giddy since the United States defeated Germany in the Women's World Cup semifinals 2-0 in Montreal.
Celebrities and regular people — even those who didn't know they cared about soccer — chimed in on the huge win:
Congrats to the #USWNT! Can't wait for the finals. You make us all proud!— President Obama (@POTUS44) July 1, 2015
Always believed it, but after watching #USAWomensSoccer vs Ger, I am convinced that the next generation of American greatness is women-led.— Alberto M. Carvalho (@MiamiSup) July 1, 2015
I have always wondered about sports groupies, the young women who follow around NFL and MLB teams. I am now ready to become one for #USWNT— Peter Sagal (@petersagal) July 1, 2015
On July 5, the U.S. women's team will play the winner of the July 1 match-up between England and Japan, last year's World Cup winners.
Will you be watching?
