The United States Of America team won their fourth Women’s World Cup on Sunday, 7 July by defeating Netherlands 2-0 in Lyon to claim back-to-back titles.

Barcelona defender Stefanie van der Gragt's high boot caught USA striker Alex Morgan and French referee Stephanie Frappart pointed to the spot after assessing replays, and the holders did not look back after taking the lead.
Megan Rapinoe scored the opening goal of the game for the US from the penalty spot after a VAR reversal before Rose Lavelle sealed victory with a brilliant strike from the edge of the box.
Having scored by the 12th minute of every match of their campaign prior to the final, the US was unable to keep the record up in the early stages, with Tobin Heath’s free-kick into the box being headed clear just before that point passed.
Rapinoe's goal also meant she won the Golden Boot after finishing with six goals and three assists, while she also took the Golden Ball award for the tournament's best player.
