Long Island soccer star Allie Long wants the key to her "favorite city" back.
After the NYC ticker tape parade celebrated the U.S. women's national team World Cup win on Wednesday, the 31-year-old midfielder headed to the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles where someone stole cash, the key to the city given to her by Mayor de Blasio, as well as her wedding ring from her hotel room.
She tweeted: "Do you make copies @NYCMayor? I would love a new one."

Mayor de Blasio responded Friday morning, tweeting, "Don't worry about the key. Like any good New Yorker, we keep a spare for our neighbors! We got you covered." He also told her to "hang in there."
According to TMZ, law enforcement officials said Long's Ritz-Carlton room was burglarized Thursday afternoon and her wedding ring was worth about $15,000.

At the ESPYs, Long's teammate Alex Morgan won female athlete of the year and the entire U.S. women's soccer team shared the best team award.
