USA will be aiming to both successfully defend their World Cup title and win the competition for a fourth time when they face the Netherlands in Lyon today.The Dutch had to battle through extra-time against Sweden, eventually progressing 1-0 following a goal from new Manchester United recruit Jackie Groenen.
Midfielder Danielle Van De Donk believes Holland can rise to the challenge, as the European champions look to upset the form book.She said: “They’re basically already congratulating us on finishing in second place. I love it, let them say what they want to say.”
The USA come into tonight’s game as record breakers after becoming the first team to reach three consecutive finals having already done so in 2011 and 2015. For the Dutch it marks the first time they’ve reached the World Cup final in what is incredibly only their second ever World Cup appearance. The two teams have only ever played each other on two occasions – both were friendlies and both matches ended in a 3-1 victory for the USWNT.
Having made an explosive start to the 2019 Women’s World Cup with a record 13-0 win in their Group F opener, the USA have been made to work increasingly hard for their place in the final as the tournament progressed. Having had testing knock-out stage wins against Spain and France, their 2-1 semi-final win over England may have come at a cost with Rose Lavell picking up an apparent hamstring injury in the clash. A similar problem also makes usual skipper Megan Rapinoe a doubt for today’s match.
With 80 percent of the Dutch viewing public tuning in to see the Oranje Lionessess win their gripping semi-final over Sweden, the Netherlands team will feel like they’ve already claimed something of a victory by capturing the imagination of a country which has only played the sport at a professional level for 12 years.
