There is a fear that women’s football will not be popular in countries outside of North America and Europe. This women’s World Cup is considered a success despite many scandals.
VAR has been repeatedly criticized for interfering with too many situations and is considered the cause of Scotland’s elimination from the group stage. Cameroon was criticized for his rude behavior, refusing to restart the match when he was defeated by VAR.
America is full of scandals from start to finish, when they are criticized for celebrating too much despite scoring 13 goals against Thailand. That was when Rapinoe took part in a talk with President Trump in the middle of the World Cup. And when Morgan did a tea drinking move to celebrate the goal against England.
Before the day finals, the US was rated higher. However, the US experienced a series of tough victories over Spain, France, and England with the score 2-1. The Dutch road to the final was even smoother as they beat Japan 2-1, Italy 2-0, and Sweden 1-0.
The Dutch defense is the most appreciated in the tournament when it only conceded 1 goal in 3 knockout matches. The American public goods are the most successful when they score 24 goals before reaching the final.
The Lyon Stadium is almost full but mostly American spectators. Who bought tickets for reservations a few months ago with the belief that the home team will reach the final. The Dutch fans stood out with their orange color but their numbers were less, in return they cheered very enthusiastically with lively songs.
Ending the first half with a score of 0-0 was a success for the Netherlands. The United States scored before the 12th minute of all matches during this World Cup until they met the Netherlands.
However, progress at the beginning of the second half was nothing new when the US still attacked, but faced a tight defense of the Netherlands. However, the Americans still scored 2 goals. Then the US withdrew to the defensive home field and the Dutch were forced to attack. The Netherlands cannot create any stunts
