Can anyone stop this USA team?

Four years ago in Canada, they swept away all before them and won their third world title by beating Japan 5-2 in the final.

It looks like being a similar story here.

They broke the record for most goals in a group stage by beating Thailand 13-0, Chile 3-0 and Sweden 2-0.

The knockout stages did then provide the Stars and Stripes with some tougher tests.

There were nervy moments in the 2-1 wins over Spain and then France but they made it through.

That set up a semi-final clash with England on Tuesday in, what turned out to be, an absolute classic.

Christen Press’ back-post header opened the scoring after just ten minutes but England equalised not long after.

However, just after the half hour mark, Alex Morgan headed in her 107th international goal to restore USA’s lead.

Bizarrely, she became the first player ever to score a FIFA Women’s World Cup goal on her birthday.

Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher did save a penalty late on as USA held on to make it through to a third final in a row.

This team have won their last 11 matches at the Women’s World Cup; the best winning streak in the history of the competition.

They’ve also opened the scoring within the opening 12 minutes in all six of their 2019 Women’s World Cup games so will be looking for another fast start here.

Will they blow Holland away?

Netherlands to upset the odds once more?

Netherlands have already made history at this tournament but they’d love to go all the way.

On August 6 2017, they beat Denmark 4-2 in the UEFA Women’s Euro Final on home soil in Enschede.

No one saw that coming but their run at this World Cup has been even more of surprise.

Just like their opponents, they won all three group matches beating New Zealand, Cameroon and Canada.

That set up a round of 16 tie with Japan, a side who were in the final four years ago.

Oranje won it 2-1 in the last minute thanks to a Lieke Martens penalty.

In the quarter-finals, two late goals from Vivianne Miedema and then Stefanie van der Gragt were enough to see off Italy 2-0.

On Wednesday, they faced Sweden in Décines-Charpieu in their first ever Women’s World Cup semi-final.

It was cagey to say the least and a game of few chances went to extra time.

However, nine minutes into the additional period, Jackie Groenen made the breakthrough and that was enough to seal a 1-0 victory.

Netherlands have become the eighth different side to reach a Women’s World Cup Final, and the fourth from Europe.

Sarina Wiegman will be desperate for her side to stay in this game for as long as possible.

Nine of the 11 goals they’ve scored at these finals have come after half time.

Although, USA are the only team to have netted more (13).

Can Oranje upset the odds?

United States team news vs Netherlands

The entirety of Jill Ellis’ squad play their football in America’s top division, the NWSL.

Just ten of them won the World Cup four years ago with only four of those who started in Vancouver expected to start here.

Alyssa Naeher will win her 53rd cap in goal looking to add to her 28 international clean sheets.

In defence, Becky Sauerbrunn will win her 164th cap at centre-back alongside Abby Dahlkemper.

Kelley O’Hara will keep her place at right-back ahead of veteran Ali Krieger.

This back four has been consistent throughout this tournament.

Jill Ellis has some big decisions to make further forward though.

Lindsey Horan came in for Sam Mewis in the semi-final and is likely to keep her place.

Julie Ertz and Rose Lavelle have both both been undroppable in midfield and will fill the other two positions.

Up front, Ellis made a huge decision on Tuesday, leaving out Megan Rapinoe for Christen Press.

Surely Rapione won’t be left out again?

Since her World Cup debut in 2011, no player has been directly involved in more goals in the competition, 8 goals and 6 assists.

Thus, despite Press opening the scoring against England, Rapione is expected to come back in.

If she does, that would mean the front three have 605 caps and 269 international goals between them.

Tobin Heath, despite all of her quality, has had to play a supporting role in this tournament.

Alex Morgan will be through the middle.

She scored five against Thailand in the group opener but hadn’t scored since before Tuesday.

This is a frighteningly good side and one that should just be too good for Holland.

Netherlands team news vs United States

As for the Dutch, they’ve had a very settled side too and there is no reason for that to change.

Sarina Wiegman had named the same starting XI for four games running before Wednesday’s semi-final so it’ll be interesting to see what she does here.

Sari van Veenendaal will once again be in goal.

She is currently without a club after leaving Arsenal but, after her performances at this tournament, there will be no shortage of takers.

In defence, Kika van Es and Anouk Dekker started the first two games at left-back and centre-back respectively.

However, Merel van Dongen and Stefanie van der Gragt came in for them for the Canada game and it’s been the same back four ever since.

Dominique Bloodworth of Wolfsburg and Freiburg’s Desiree van Lunteren make up the defence.

The midfield has been the same throughout the competition.

Sherida Spitse and Jackie Groenen anchor the midfield behind Arsenal’s Daniëlle van de Donk.

Spitse has provided more assists than any other Netherlands player in Women’s World Cup history (4), all of which have come via set-pieces.

Jill Roord, who’s just left Bayern München for Arsenal, can not get into the team at the moment, emphasising the strength they have in midfield.

Up front, they have a big decision to make.

Lineth Beerensteyn started for the first time at this tournament on the right ahead of Shanice van de Sanden.

However, van de Sanden’s lively cameo off the bench should see her come back into the XI.

Up front, they have one of the best strikers around; Vivianne Miedema.

She was the top scorer in the WSL last season, with 22, helping Arsenal win the title.

Then, in the Cameroon group game, she became Holland’s all time leading scorer with 60 despite only being 22 years old.

This is certainly a strong side but will it be able to compete with the very best?
