The 2015 Women’s World Cup winning U.S. team became the first all-female squad to be honored with a ticker-tape parade through New York City’s Canyon of Heroes on Friday morning (though individual female athletes have been celebrated this way before). And on Friday night, they brought the trophy on stage during a Taylor Swift concert in New Jersey, so the singer could hold it aloft, finally achieving what we can only assume was her plan all along and fulfilling her lifelong goal.

Surely Artur Boruc is jealous that a group of footballers got to meet his hero and he wasn’t one of them.

Anyway, now that Swift has the Women’s World Cup trophy and Rihanna has the men’s World Cup trophy, they will do battle in an effort to unify the titles and become the one true ruler of the world.
