During a trip to Manchester, N.H., Downingtown resident David Savage joined a local celebration of the U.S. women’s soccer team that won the World Cup, writes Doug Alden for the New Hampshire Union Leader.
Savage was in town for a wedding and a birthday party, but he decided to add one more celebratory item to his agenda. On Sunday, he headed to Chunky’s Cinema Pub in Manchester for a World Cup watch party. There, he got a chance to enjoy one more superb performance by the U.S. women on a large movie screen with a throng of excited soccer fans.
Savage, who is a big soccer fan, said it was fun to see Americans support the team.
“It’s great,” said Savage. “Let’s face it. They’re getting more attention than the men because they’re a better team, relatively speaking.”
Unlike their male counterparts, who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, the American women are an international soccer power. They won their fourth World Cup title, the most that any country’s women have ever won.
