The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team got by with a little help from their fans over the weekend.
After taking part in a practice session at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Saturday ahead of their game against Brazil on Sunday, the team bus broke down, forcing the club to find another way to get back to their hotel.
The team ended up sticking their thumbs up and hitching rides with some adoring fans that were stuck behind the crippled coach.
A few of the stars, including Hope Solo and Sydney Leroux, even tweeted out pictures of their impromptu ride back.
Just in case you were wondering, they ended up beating Brazil 4-1.

Our bus broke down at the stadium. Option A: Hitchhike with fans. Option B: Wait. What do you think we did? pic.twitter.com/ntqwBIVHFp
