(1010 WINS) — The US women's soccer team was met with loud cheers as they made their way down the Canyon of Heroes Wednesday morning as the city celebrated the team's World Cup win.

The parade, four years to the day, after that for the 2015 title winners, moved down Broadway, from Battery Park to City Hall.

Crowds could be heard chanting, "USA!" as they awaited the champions.

Mayor Bill de Blasio introduced "Good Morning America'" host Robin Roberts, who introduced the members of the team.

Roberts presented members of the team with keys to the city.

Coach Jill Ellis and Co-captains Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe gave speeches.

Rapino said, "We have pink hair and purple hair, we have tattoos and dreadlocks, we have white girls and black girls and everything in between. Straight girls and gay girls.''

De Blasio said the team "brought us together'' and ``showed us so much to make us hopeful.''

The team, led by stars Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle, won its fourth title on Sunday, defeating the Netherlands 2-0 in the final.

Rapinoe won the tournament's Golden Boot as the leading scorer and the Golden Ball as the best player.
