White House Welcomes U.S. Women's Soccer Team

The U.S. women's national soccer team takes on Washington D.C. They were welcomed to the White House by President Obama last week to recognize their World Cup win. And a very special 13-year-old girl was given the honor of introducing the president at the start of the event.

The president saluted the team for altering kids' perceptions of what it means to "play like a girl". He also joked with one of the team's stars, Carli Lloyd, whose Wikipedia page was briefly altered post-world cup to say she was the U.S. president.
