During the post-game celebration, one of the USWNT members can be seen throwing the American flag to the ground so she can do a little victory dance. Literally. Have a watch:
Don’t let that flag touch the ground please, great job by her teammate picking it up pic.twitter.com/lFYFucbDSh

The teammate who rescued the flag is Kelley O’Hara:
Kelley O’Hara thanks for picking up that flag so quick when your teammate inappropriately threw it in the ground for a photo up. Congrats inthe World Cup

And the woman who dropped the flag is Allie Long:

This is not a good look:
@ALLIE_LONG U drop the US flag on the ground at the World Cup in front of the world, just so u can raise a cheer with Rapinoe, who doesn't respect our Country. Shameful.

And O’Hara’s heroics continued in the locker room. THIS is how you celebrate, head injury and all:
