Meet Netherlands Soccer Star Daniëlle van de Donk

Megan Rapinoe of the U.S. during the 2019 FIFA Womens World Cup. This time around it's the World Cup final with Team USA vs. the Netherlands for the title.

But for now, Rapinoe says she is focused on what's ahead. It's so surreal. I don't know how to feel right now. She said she expects to be ready Sunday.

"We're insane", said Rapinoe after the match. We just have no quit in us. "We'll do anything to win". She was the USA catalyst, the hero when it mattered most.

Rose Lavelle put the match out of reach, when she scored with a powerful left footed drive past the Dutch goalkeeper in the 69th minute.

In response, a Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesperson said that the scheduling of the finals had been arranged after "a comprehensive consultancy process" involving "all key stakeholders" and pointed out that efforts were made to avoid any direct clashes.

The FIFA Women's World Cup final is scheduled to be played at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon.

"Megan should never disrespect our country, the White House or our flag, especially since so much has been done for her and the team". In two hundred parades, over more than one hundred years, the city has bestowed this unique tribute on champion athletes, pioneers of air and space travel, soldiers, sailors, sea captains, firemen, heads of state, politicians, journalists, and a virtuoso pianist. Following five minutes of stoppage time, the official blew her whistle, and the 2-0 win meant the Americans earned the fourth star on their crest.

Former Virginia defender Becky Sauerbrunn - the 2007 ACC Defensive Player of the Year - started in 90 matches over four seasons for the Cavaliers and since her debut for the national team in 2008, has appeared in 166 matches for the U.S. During the last several years, Sauerbrunn has been a mainstay on the national team. We'll bring you the score, highlights and analysis as the 2019 Women's World Cup final unfolds.

"They put their hearts and souls into this journey, I can not thank them enough". The Dutch are underdogs at +765 (risk $100 to win $765), and if you simply want to pick the U.S.to win outright, you can get in at -600. Rapinoe, who was the first professional white athlete to kneel during the US anthem in protest before US Soccer passed a rule that they all had to stand, was asked in France whether she would go to the White House if invited after a win.

It was a deserved goal from the 24-year-old midfielder, who has arguably been the Unites States' best player this summer. After a goalless first half, Rapinoe scored with a penalty after a high-footed tackle.

Megan Rapinoe has overcome a hamstring injury to return to the United States' starting XI for the Women's World Cup final, while Lieke Martens has also been handed a start for Netherlands following a fitness test.

She matched teammate Alex Morgan and England's Ellen White for most goals in the tournament and won the Golden Ball based on fewer minutes. A ball was played into Morgan in the box, and while she was unable to get to it, Dutch defender Stefanie van der Gragt stuck her foot up in a unsafe position, making contact with Morgan's arm.

The Americans opened the tournament with a record 13-0 rout of lowly Thailand, triggering debate over whether the celebrations after each goal were excessive.
