This is the U.S. women’s second consecutive trip to the final. If they win, it’ll be their fourth time winning the tournament.
The Dutch women face a daunting task as they attempt to pull off an upset. It is only the second time the Netherlands have qualified for the Women’s World Cup. In 2015, they were knocked out in the Round of 16 by Japan — who were, in turn, beaten by the U.S. in the 2015 final.

Netherlands are seeking their first win in against the U.S. since 1991. The two have faced each other seven times in total. The U.S. has won six times with only one loss.
