America expects yet Dutch may surprise in WC final

Where to watch the Women's World Cup in California

Team USA will face the Netherlands on Sunday at Stade de Lyon in Lyon, France, in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup final.

President Trump has said he would invite the team to Washington, win or lose. "We should double it now and use that number to double it or quadruple it for the next time", Rapinoe, one of the United States team's co-captains, said.

The U.S. has the tournament's joint top scorer in Alex Morgan - who has six goals.

"I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women's Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS!"

"I think every player is dreaming of playing in the World Cup final and playing against the previous champions, and everybody dreams of getting as many trophies as they can so hopefully, we can add one more", said the defender Dominique Bloodworth.

Rose Lavelle of the US celebrates with teammates after scoring her team's second goal during the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup final on Sunday, July 7, 2019 in Lyon, France.

They are the only nation to have reached the semifinals of all eight FIFA Women's World Cups that have been held since the inaugural tournament in 1991. In July 2017, the group began a 28-game unbeaten streak that lasted until the start of 2019, when they suffered a 3-1 loss to France.

The United States has won a record 11 straight World Cup matches dating to 2015 in Canada, surpassing Norway's record from 1995-99.

United States of America are looking for a record fourth World Cup trophy and beat England in the semi-finals.

Finally, according to Forbes, the women even get paid a higher percentage of the total World Cup gross.

Having won her 101st match as U.S. manager against England, the English-born Ellis is looking to become the first coach to win the Women's World Cup twice.

Much like U.S. Coach Jill Ellis did with Megan Rapinoe in their semifinal against England, Wiegman left van de Sanden on the bench at the start of the Netherlands' semifinal against Sweden even though she had started the previous five games of the tournament and even though the Dutch largely had used the same starting 11 for almost two years.

It marked Rapinoe's 50th goal for her country.

Earlier in the tournament, Morgan admitted that she would like to see a USWNT player win the award, but noted the team was much more focused on winning back-to-back World Cup titles.

Despite the USA being favourites, Dutch head coach Sarina Wiegman maintains her team can cause an upset.

The ad celebrates the USWNT's incredible accomplishment on the field, but it also celebrates who they are off the field.

As expected, Rapinoe returned to the starting line-up after recovering from the hamstring issue which saw her sit out the 2-1 semi-final win against England, replacing Christen Press.
