The U.S. national power-wheelchair soccer team -- on which 17-year-old Minnesotan Pete Winslow ("His goal: Doing the Undoable") is the youngest member -- won the World Cup Sunday in Paris.

The team was traveling back to the United States on Monday and was not available for comment, but Twitter posts by team members revealed that they shut-out England 3-0 in the championship game.

During pool play, Team USA lost to England 1-0, but by that time the team already had assured itself a spot in the play-offs. That was the team's only loss during the tournament.
