You waited around after the game with a black Sharpie in hand. You eagerly awaited the arrival of your favorite player and called out their name in excitement. Instead of passing you by, they actually stopped and grabbed the marker from you. A few seconds later, you had a signed jersey. Now what?
You made the trip of a lifetime to France, Russia, Canada, or even Brazil back in 2014. You grumbled in agony when Tim Howard finally let in that second goal against Belgium. You sat in disbelief as Carli Lloyd had a hat trick within 16 minutes in the final against Japan. Or you just witnessed the USWNT win their second Women’s World Cup in a row. In 2018 the World Cup in Russia was host to 3,031,768 people,1 and if you were one of them or an attendee at another World Cup, it was an event that you never want to forget.
