Megan Rapinoe strolled around taking selfies, occasionally sipping bubbly with her teammates and trying to balance the Women's World Cup championship trophy on her head.

A day after the United States claimed its third Women's World Cup title, the party was still going on in Vancouver on Monday.

For a number of players, the realization was just beginning to set it of their accomplishment in beating Japan 5-2 for the Americans' first World Cup title since 1999. Perhaps no player was coming to grips with her newfound stardom more than Carli Lloyd, whose hat trick in the first 16 minutes gave the Americans a 4-0 lead.

Lloyd says she's going to have to "ride this wave" of attention for a short time and then "come back down to earth."
