USA beat Netherlands to win fourth FIFA Women's World Cup

Where to watch the Women's World Cup in California

Australia's Sam Kerr, Brazil's Cristiane and Wendie Renard from France all grabbed five goals in the tournament. Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher earned the most credit by saving an English penalty to secure the Americans' win.

The Dutch women face a daunting task as they attempt to pull off an upset.

"You see men celebrating all around the world in big tournaments, grabbing their sacks or whatever it is, when I look at sipping a cup of tea, I'm a little taken aback and kind of you have to laugh about it to see all the criticism", Morgan said yesterday.

The U.S. Women's National Team is not a party to the lawsuit but has still come out in support of the action saying it "supports the plaintiffs' goal of eliminating gender-based discrimination by USSF".

The team won their second straight World Cup title on Sunday, beating the Netherlands 2-0 in Lyon, France.

"Of course we are European champions but we want to have more and that we are standing in the final now at the World Cup, at the highest level in women´s soccer, that´s fantastic, that´s wonderful", said the midfielder Sherida Spitse. And I think the USA has always pictured themselves in the final.

From the beginning the Women's World Cup was considered the USA's to lose.

On Saturday, goals from Kosovare Asllani and Sofia Jakobsson helped Sweden beat England 2-1 in the third-place play-off in Nice. "As people who work in football, play in football, that is a awful idea to put everything on the same day", Rapinoe said at a press conference broadcast by FIFA's website. Rapinoe has four goals in the tournament.

The Netherlands battled throughout and goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal kept out the USA for an hour with a series of superb saves in front of 57,900 fans at Lyon's Groupama Stadium.

The Netherlands played very tight defense in the first half.

"I'd first like to say that I'd like someone on our team to win the Golden Boot", Morgan noted, per Yahoo Sports. The last time they didn't win a match during the tournament was when they tied Sweden 0-0 in group play during the 2015 tournament. The United States won 3-1 in a friendly at Atlanta. The team tied twice in that span - once with England and the other with Japan. Eastern time slots, the World Cup final will air at 11 a.m. The Netherlands are listed at 3/1 odds to win the title, but 80 percent of the betting market has backed to the Americans in the final match.

Tomorrow's final is the third in a row to feature the United States, while The Netherlands are making their first appearance in the competition's showpiece match.

We want to hear what you think about the state of soccer in the USA right now, especially seeing how these women have DOMINATED for years, while the men's team has struggled SO much.
