USA coach Jill Ellis 'elated' by Women's World Cup triumph

USA Women coach Jill Ellis admits her delight after seeing the team thrash Japan 5-2 to win the Women's World Cup final.

USA Women coach Jill Ellis has described the team's Women's World Cup final victory over Japan as "pure elation".

A thrilling encounter in Vancouver on Sunday saw the Americans prevail 5-2 thanks to Carli Lloyd's first-half hat-trick.

The match allowed the USA to gain some revenge over Japan after losing the final to them back in 2011.

"[It's] just pure elation," Ellis told BBC Sport. "I'm so, so proud of this team and these players and so happy for every little girl that dreams of this."

USA have now won three Women's World Cup titles.
