The 2-0 victory over Holland in the final on July 7 brought American girls the fourth win in the world championship. The US team took the throne when winning all seven matches at the Women’s World Cup 2019.
With the US captain Megan Rapinoe returning to the main kick, both teams have the strongest force for the important match. The American girls joined better when actively taking over the game and giving pressure to the opponent. The opportunity was continuously created by Alex Morgan. The striker twice invaded the penalty area and finished, but the Dutch player Veenendaal played brilliantly.
As the defending champion, American girls are the ones who take the initiative and push the opponent. Many opportunities were created, but the Dutch defense still stood firm. European representatives advocated strong defensive play and waited for the opportunity to launch counter-attacks. But it was not until the end of the first half that the Netherlands created some situations on the ball. However, no table was scored in the first half.
After the break, the United States attacked, paid off with a penalty in the 61st minute. The referee consulted VAR, and determined Van Der Gragt’s defender had a high-legged error, causing Morgan to fall in the penalty area. Captain Rapinoe scored the correct spot on the 11m mark.
By 69 minutes, America doubled the gap. Lavelle takes the ball in the middle and then hits a long-range cannon, kicking the Dutch goalkeeper. The Dutch girls tried to rise up and seek to settle but still failed. The match ended with a score of 2-0. This is the fourth time in US history to win the Women’s World Cup, after the 1991, 1999, and 2015 periods.
Besides the championship, the US team also acquired two other noble individual titles at the Women’s World Cup 2019. Their captain Rapinoe was elected the best player in the tournament. Rapinoe and his teammate Morgan and the striker Ellen White share the best scorer with six goals each.
