Highlights from USA v Netherlands 2019 Women’s World Cup Final

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final was a football match which determined the winner of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. It was the eighth final of the FIFA Women’s World Cup,

The final was contested by the United States, the defending champion, and the Netherlands, in their first final. The United States won 2–0, earning their second consecutive and fourth overall Women’s World Cup title, with second-half goals scored by co-captain Megan Rapinoe (from the penalty spot) and Rose Lavelle.

Rapinoe tied up the Golden Boot ahead of her teammate Alex Morgan, having matched her for goals and assists but in fewer minutes on the pitch. USA’s co-captain slotted home the spot-kick on the hour, after Morgan had been fouled by Stefanie van der Gragt. Eight minutes later, Lavelle sealed victory with a fine solo effort.

With USA having overcome the hosts, France, and England, there was less a feeling this would be Le Grande Finale and more of a hope that it would not be a whitewash.
