USA Women Are The Four Time FIFA World Champs
The Netherlands was riding the hot goalkeeping of eventual Golden Glove winner Sari van Veenendaal, who kept the USA scoreless until Alex Morgan drew a penalty in the 61 minute that led to Megan Rapinoe's sixth goal of the tournament. That snapped van Veennedaal's scoreless streak at 314 minutes, and seven minutes later Rose Lavelle sent a scorching shot from 18 yards out past van Veenendaal to make it 2-0 and start the party in Lyon for te American fans there and back in the USA.
Take that Donald Trump!
The Netherlands along with England and Sweden did walk away from this tournament knowing that they have qualified for the 2020 Olympics.. Sweden also won the Third Place game 2-1 against England.
But all hail the queens of the FIFA soccer pitch. Will they threepeat in 2023? We'll have to wait to find out the answer to this question.
