The president applauded Coach Jill Ellis for her leadership during this remarkable run and noted Carli Lloyd's extraordinary hat-trick and early goal, which set the tone for the team's convincing victory. Obama says he looks forward to welcoming the team to the White House to celebrate their championship.
