America rejoiced when the U.S. Women's National Team won the 2015 World Cup on Sunday night, scoring four goals in an unforgettable opening 16 minutes and ultimately beating Japan 5-2. And to commemorate the momentous event, Sports Illustrated has released a special digital cover shot by photographer Simon Bruty (below).

The festive photo shows the team celebrating as they raise their trophy in the air, in what is sure to be a moment that goes down in history. While the cover doesn't accompany an actual issue (this happens to be one of the four weeks each year where SI doesn't publish a print magazine), you can purchase the stunning image at
