Soccer player Julie Ertz was in tears after the U.S. women’s national team finished a 5-1 win over Denmark in a friendly Sunday night.
For good reason. Turns out, she’s going to the Super Bowl.
Ertz’s husband is Eagles tight end Zack Ertz, and she was informed of Philadelphia’s 38-7 NFC championship game victory over Minnesota shortly after her match in San Diego.

“Are we really going?” she asked before crying through hugs and congratulations from USMNT teammates on the pitch.
Zack Ertz led Philadelphia with eight catches and 93 yards in the NFC championship game.
