USA Beats The Netherlands To Win The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup
Brash but brilliant.
They can attack in waves, from the Rapinoe-Morgan-Heath front line to Lavelle in midfield and back to overlapping backs.
If they could give the Golden Ball to a unit, it should be given to the US midfield and defense, which has been stifling. The “expected goals” stat may have favored France and England in those games, but that’s misleading — the USA had it in control most of the time.
Sure, England were unlucky, but in no sense could you say they were the better team.
And today, despite strong Dutch resistance, the USA were a level above. Only strong goalkeeping kept it scoreless at the half.
