The soccer team, which won its record fourth Women's World Cup title, touched down at Newark Liberty International Airport at about 4:30 p.m. Monday where they were met with cheers and a banner saying "Congratulations Team USA!"

The team members gathered on the tarmac for a toast and posed for pictures as they sang "We Are The Champions."

The Americans beat the Netherlands 2-0 Sunday when Megan Rapinoe converted a penalty kick in the second half and Rose Lavelle added a goal.

On Wednesday, the team will be showered with a ticker-tape parade up lower Manhattan's Canyon of Heroes.

It's the city's first ticker-tape parade since the women's team won the 2015 Cup.
