    One of the players for the U.S. Women's Team in the World Cup hails from our state.

    Back here at home, about 35 family members of goalie Alyssa Naeher were watching really closely in Cheshire.

    She was born in Bridgeport, raised in Stratford, and played high school soccer at Christian Heritage in Trumbull. And now... this.

    "It's really surreal because we've been talking about this for 25 years waiting for it to happen and we're so excited that it's happening," Naeher's cousin Lorna Tyrrell said.

    A victory parade is being planned for Wednesday in New York City.
