The USWNT is ready to defend its World Cup title, and the last step comes on Sunday, July 7 at 11 a.m. ET when the Americans face the Netherlands.
Their 2-1 win against England on Tuesday marked the U.S.’s 11th consecutive win in World Cup matches, breaking the record for longest such streak in the tournament. Doing so would make them the first team in history to go back-to-back-to-back.
A big question for the U.S. is the status of Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle, both of whom are battling battling hamstring issues.
The Dutch showed their strength against a tough Swedish team in a 1-0 semifinal win that took extra time to solve. They’ll have their work cut out for them against a strong USWNT offense that scored within the first 10 minutes of both the quarterfinals and semifinals. The Netherlands will have to be on guard early and combat the aggressiveness of the Americans for a full 90 minutes.
Here’s what you need to know going into Sunday’s matchup.
