The US women's national soccer team received an invitation from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after their stunning Friday victory over France in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.


Superstar player Megan Rapinoe scored twice in USA's 2 - victory.

Both Rapinoe and teammate Ali Krieger have rejected invitations from President Donald Trump.

"It may not be the White House, but we’d be happy to welcome [Rapinoe] and the entire #USWMNT for a tour of the House of Representatives anytime they’d like," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Rapinoe replied, "consider it done, AOC."
