American soccer star Abby Wambach sharing a kiss with her wife, Sarah Huffman, after Sunday’s World Cup win, has social media feeling all warm and happy.

Within minutes of the U.S. team’s 5-2 win over Japan, Wambach – considered the “soul” of the American team – jumped into the stands to share a celebratory kiss with Huffman. The women married in Hawaii in October 2013.

Fans quickly passed the image around social media using the hashtag, #LoveWins. That’s the same hashtag that went viral last week after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in the United States.

Tweeted Carolyn Hinsey, ‏@CarolynHinsey: “I hope younger people GET how huge it is that @AbbyWambach can kiss her wife in the stands on FOXTV and it's no big thing #Progress.”
