Taylor Swift invites US women’s soccer team onstage


Taylor Swift fans were treated to some extra star power at her concert Friday night in New Jersey.

Swift invited the U.S. women’s soccer national team – fresh off its World Cup win against Japan – to join her onstage at MetLife Stadium during her hit song “Style.”

The players let Swift hold their World Cup championship trophy, and the crowd erupted in applause when Swift asked the team to take a bow.

Earlier Friday, New York City held a ticker-tape parade for the championship team, the first women’s team to be honored with such a parade in three decades.
