Houston welcomes home World Cup champs

Sporting red, white and blue jerseys, hair ribbons and even braces, five members of East Texas’ 11-year-old Team USA were more than ready to welcome the Houston Dash’s three U.S. soccer stars back to Houston on Sunday. Fresh off their victory at the 2015 Women’s World Cup, the Houston Dash’s three U.S. national team stars were met by a boisterous and uncharacteristically large crowd in their 2-1 loss to the Chicago Red Stars, their first game since the tournament. In addition to potentially boosting attendance and support for the Dash, some fans said the U.S. women’s national team’s victory established the players as strong role models for young female soccer players.
