Match Preview

The USA, the defending World Cup (WC) champions, edged out England (2-1) in the semi-finals, and now face the Netherlands – a nation appearing at just their second WC tournament. The holders enter this final as favourites having won 11 consecutive WC fixtures – no other nation has enjoyed a longer winning run at the WC.
The fast-paced attacking ability of the Americans will bring them confidence, and they have netted the opener within ten minutes in each of their knockout fixtures, and within the first 12 minutes of every WC game they’ve played this summer.
Tournament top scorers the USA (24 goals) could see their goalscoring exploits continue here, considering they registered the highest-scoring WC final in history in 2015 when they beat Japan 5-2. Yet in the Netherlands they take on a side they’ve never faced at this tournament, although the USA have won two previous friendlies by a 3-1 scoreline.
However, don’t underestimate the Dutch who have proven they can rise to the big occasion in recent games. The ‘Oranje’ fought hard to overturn Sweden 1-0 after extra-time in their semi-final, marking their 12th consecutive win at a major tournament (they beat Denmark 4-2 to claim the European Championship in 2017).
Players to watch: Golden boot contender Alex Morgan (six goals) scored the USA’s winning goal against England, with a 31st minute header.
Lieke Martens was the first goalscorer vs Japan (2-1), and she scored within 30 minutes in the Netherlands’ Euro 2017 final victory.
Stat attack: The USA have averaged one yellow card per game this WC; the Netherlands have averaged 0.67.
Two of the previous four WC finals that the USA have featured in were decided on penalties.
Both nations have seen both teams score in exactly half their France 2019 fixtures.
