The U.S. women's national team has celebrated their World Cup final win over the Netherlands in style with joint-captain Alex Morgan's dance moves stealing the show. 

As the players partied in the locker room following the 2-0 victory, Morgan was filmed holding a beer and twerking with all of her teammates cheering on wildly. 

Several videos of the celebrations emerged on social media with backup goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris posting an incredible series of stories on her Instagram page.

The vision included singing, dancing, spraying of drinks and messages to family, friends and followers as the USWNT celebrated the honor of being the best women's team in the world. 

It was the USWNT's fourth World Cup title and second in succession after winning the 2015 edition in Canada. 

The 26 goals they scored in the tournament was a competition record, beating a mark set by themselves and Germany in 1991 and 2003, respectively as they bulldozed their way to the final. 

They failed to concede a goal in an incredible group stage performance, which included the record 13-0 win over Thailand in their first match, before winning all three of the knockout games 2-1 against Spain, France and England to earn their spot in the decider versus the Dutch. 

Despite being strong favorites in the final, the USWNT didn't have it all their own way against a dangerous Netherlands outfit until Golden Ball winner Megan Rapinoe opened the scoring after 61 minutes from the spot, after the referee agreed a penalty was warranted following VAR intervention. 

The result was sealed eight minutes later as a low-drive from Rose Lavelle gave the USWNT an advantage that the Dutch were unable to overcome. 

In addition to winning the tournament's best player ahead of England's Lucy Bronze and teammate Lavelle, Rapinoe also claimed the Golden Boot award with her six goals coming in only 428 minutes compared to the 490 minutes it took Morgan to score her six strikes. 

The Netherlands didn't go home from the final empty-handed with goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal claiming the Golden Glove award with three clean sheets against New Zealand, Sweden and Italy
