BUFFALO, N.Y. — The U.S. Women's Soccer Team is World Cup champions yet again. They also won back in 2015. Fans cheered them on from across the globe at Més Que. There were some long time fans, and some new.

"I've followed it ever since their inception in '91. I've followed it ever since the beginning," Paul Sampugnaro said.

Toni Christiano, the part-owner of Més Que prepared for this day for a while.

"It's something I've never really felt before. I've been to a lot of rock shows, a lot of mosh pits, but that is very electric in there," said Christiano.

The game was especially important to Karlie Mann, who's a senior in high school, headed to play soccer at the College of Brockport upon graduation.

"It's really motivating because a lot of girl sports don't get a lot of opportunity, and seeing people like Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe stand up for what they believe in. It's really powerful," Mann said.

"There seems to be more passion with the women's sports, believe it or not, as opposed to the mens. The women have more talent than the men do," said Sampugnaro.

Vantelli Amoia put it simply.

"Women are awesome," Amoia said.
