It was a poor penalty but a good save. Shows character
It was ordained by Uncle Sam.
You were saying....Muhahahaha
The US definitely deserves to go through. They look like a great team all over.
Come on Holland!!!
This is looking like it could be close.
Could either of these teams put up a good fight against the US?
Holland now up in extra time. 18 minutes left!
3rd Place Match
England vs Sweden
USWNT vs Netherlands
Congrats to Holland on the win! I think the US should win quite easily in the final.
England lose to Sweden in the 3rd place match. Congrats to Sweden.
Here we go! This is the big one.
0-0 at half time.
Penalty referred to VAR
Penalty given and Rapinoe scores for 1-0 US!
Bull**** call. That wasn't a penalty.
Back to Back Champs!
Best country in the world!
Lavelle scored a great second for the US. US are back to back champions. Congrats!! Definitely the best team in the tournament.

Netherlands held their own for the first 1/2, and their Goalie deserves the Brienne Sword for all those saves. until that penalty call, which seemed excessive, gave the US the lead, and somewhat deflated Netherlands, while giving the US the room to get cocky.
And so they did...
Rose Lavelle's run and score was fantastic!
Great game, and tournament, congrats US!
Yeah, the goalkeeper deserves a medal. Without her the game would have been totally different. The Dutch were doing ok till then but their heads dropped after the penalty.
She got one!
Golden glove, if not for all those saves, would have been like Neth 0 - 6 US . she deserves it!
Lavelle also got the Bronze Ball!
Oh yeah, haha. Totally deserved.
