Sports Illustrated has marked the US Women’s World Cup win with a one-of-a-kind photo shoot. 25 different covers – one for each player, plus their head coach Jill Ellis and a group shot – celebrate the squad’s victory.

“The USWNT has plenty of recognizable, even famous names, but we couldn’t think of a group so thoroughly identified with a team as this one,” said Chris Stone, Sports Illustrated managing editor. “We could go two ways: a team shot, which seemed a little conventional here, or something different and fresh: honoring not just one or two players, but all 23 of them with their own cover.”
