Members of the United States Women's National Team are being lauded by the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit crew after their heroic Women's World Cup victory

Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Crystal Dunn and Abby Dahlkemper showed another side of themselves in ten stunning images posted to Instagram by SI Swim editor MJ Day. 

"I’m so proud to be connected to this group of 22 women who fought like hell and don’t give any Fs," Day wrote in honor of the USWNT's second consecutive World Cup win. 

"I’m so proud to know the women who took on the WORLD and WON. CONGRATULATIONS!!!" 

Day shared other awesome shots of the American champs. One was a completely badass pic of co-captain Rapinoe—the World Cup's top scorer and winner of the coveted Golden Boot award—flipping a double bird for the camera, naturally. 

"Going to leave this right here," Day captioned the pic. "Yes woman." 

Another Instagram gallery, shared by Day before the big win, begins with co-captain Morgan's SI Swim cover.

"Cheering for the #USWNT today and every day. Not just for what they represent on the field but what they represent for women. Period," Day wrote. 

"Keep kicking ass ladies." 

Indeed. Congrats to the entire USWNT!
