USWNT star Allie Long's ring, cash and key to NYC stolen

Allie Long’s celebratory day as a world champion ended on the opposite note as her Los Angeles hotel room was burglarized after the 2019 ESPY Awards.

Long, a midfielder for the United States women’s national team and Reign FC, tweeted Thursday someone stole her wedding ring, cash and “the key to my favorite city,” New York City.

The USWNT was in New York City that morning for a ticker tape parade celebrating its fourth World Cup star and each player received a key to the city from Mayor Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio responded Friday morning to the Northport, Long Island, native with words of encouragement and a promise of a spare.

“We got you covered,” he tweeted.

The USWNT then flew to Los Angeles to attend the ESPYs, where the squad won the “Best Team” award. Teammate Alex Morgan, who tweeted at Long in support, won “Female Athlete of the Year.”

The Los Angeles police department confirmed to ABC 7 the items were stolen from her and her husband’s room at the Ritz-Carlton hotel on Wednesday night. The door was left ajar and there was no sign of forced entry, per ABC 7. Police are reviewing video from the hotel.
