LOS ANGELES — The celebration was cut short for a member of the World Cup champion U.S. women’s soccer team when she discovered someone had burglarized her hotel room in Los Angeles.
Allie Long tweeted on Thursday that it happened after the team was honored at The ESPYS on Wednesday night.
Long wrote that “someone stole my wedding ring, cash and the key to my favorite city.” She’s referring to the symbolic key that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio gave the players after the ticker-tape parade Wednesday.

In the post, she asked de Blasio whether they make copies because she “would love a new one.” De Blasio says he will send her a replacement key to the city.
So sorry to hear it, Allie. Hang in there. Don’t worry about the key. Like any good New Yorker, we keep a spare for our neighbors! We got you covered. https://t.co/B5xqZPMZnU
