Soccer fans were at the Greater Rochester International Airport on Thursday to welcome to town the gold medal winning women's soccer team.

The team is in town to take on Costa Rica Sahlen's at Stadium on Saturday. Fans waited for players who stopped and signed autographs for those who came out.

The players tell us they're excited to get back and play together again.

"It's been three weeks since we've been together. I think we're all looking forward to the ten-game victory tour coming up," said Carli Lloyd, midfielder. "This is the first stop in Rochester, and I'm really excited to get back out on the field. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm looking forward to it."

"I played here last year, so it's really nice to be back. Emotions were running high. I'm just really happy that this is our first game back together and that it was in Rochester, a place that I played in last year and a place Abby grew up in," said Alex Morgan, forward.

Saturday's game is sold out.
