The United States Women’s National Team will be back in FIFA World Cup action for a huge game on Sunday (July 7). This time around it’s the World Cup final with Team USA vs. the Netherlands for the title.
There will be plenty of spectators witnessing the matchup live and in person, and millions more watching worldwide. Here are the latest details for what time the USWNT plays, which TV channel it will be on, and how to watch it live online.
USA vs. Netherlands World Cup final preview
Both teams arrive to this FIFA World Cup finals after thrilling semifinals victories. Team USA was the first to pick up their victory, with a 2-1 win over England on July 2. That game featured the glaring absence of star player Megan Rapinoe due to injury.
However, Christen Press and Alex Morgan played brilliantly, each scoring header goals for the United States. Goalie Alyssa Naeher also deserves credit for stopping a key England penalty kick that could’ve been the game’s equalizer. The US escaped with the 2-1 victory, and will now play for their second-straight World Cup title and third overall.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands enters a stage they’ve yet to be on during World Cup history. On July 3, they took on Sweden in a matchup that went scoreless for nearly 100 minutes.
It was a game which saw Kosovare Asllani go down with an injury, but she returned on Saturday to help Sweden pick up the bronze. However, in the semifinals the Netherlands’ Jackie Groenen was the hero for her side, scoring in the 99th minute for the 1-0 win.
They’ll now battle a USA team that are the reigning champions with a 2015 World Cup title to defend.
