The United States Women's National team have repeated as World Cup champions. After beating the Netherlands 2-0 in Sunday's final, they hoist the trophy for the second consecutive tournament.

In a powerful message of empowerment Nike's new commercial uses the "I Believe," chant to talk politics, sports, and chilling inspiration.

Throughout this World Cup, the U.S. women had a lead going into halftime of every match they had played. They had never been held scoreless in the first half. It took an hour of game time before Megan Rapinoe broke the scoreless tie for the U.S. on a penalty kick.

The No. 1 ranked United States Women's National team and the Netherlands national team - ranked No. 8 - have completed their first half. Team USA is aiming to repeat as reigning champions. The Dutch are trying to pull off a huge upset.
