United States Women vs Netherlands Women Match Preview
United States have again shown they are the best women’s football team on the planet and are expected to retain their world title with a comfortable win against the Netherlands.
It has not all been absolute plain sailing for the Americans at this World Cup. After an opening 13-0 trouncing of Thailand and comfortable group wins over Chile and Sweden, they have had to work hard to get past Spain, France and England during the knockout stage.
But they find a way to win and, according to the FIFA rankings, this trophy decider ought to be an easier assignment than both of their matches in the quarter and semi-finals.
The Netherlands have maintained their upward trajectory of the last few years, the European champions only having contested their first ever World Cup tournament in 2015, reaching the round-of-16, but now in the final after the draw opened up for them with Germany’s defeat.
On a winning roll that began in the spring, the Dutch needed extra time to beat Sweden on Wednesday and their confidence must be growing rapidly with an exciting young team headed by Arsenal trio Vivianne Miedema, Danielle van de Donk and goalkeeper/captain Sari van Veenendaal.
However, it is simply impossible to oppose the United States because although they have a significantly older squad than the Oranje, their experience on big occasions like this is invaluable – and manager Jill Ellis has rotated the team to keep players fresh throughout the tournament.
