A supporter dressed up in period costume said "I'm dressed as George Washington right now, the first President, the first one who did it, the first one who unifies, and this tournament is all about unification right now, no politics, no country lines."

Supporters marched together towards Stadium Auguste Delaune, where their team take on Spain in the knock out phase of the Women's World Cup.
