The United States women’s national team won an unprecedented 3rd Women’s World Cup title with their 5-2 win over Japan on Sunday. After winning the inaugural 1991 Women’s World Cup and the 1999 WWC on home soil it was a long 16-year wait to add a 3rd star to the team crest.

The stars above a federation’s badge, on women’s and men’s international jerseys, each represent a world championship.
The 3-stars above the U.S. Soccer Federation badge are arranged in a triangular shape.
There are only 3 other women’s teams, Norway (1995), Germany (2003, 2007), and Japan (2011) with 1 or more stars above their badge. Carli Lloyd became the first women’s player to score a hat-trick in the Women’s World Cup final. Lloyd joins a short list along with 15 other players to score in a WWC final.
