Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle were both on target as the United States were crowned world champions Sunday after beating the Netherlands 2-0 in the FIFA 2019 Women's World Cup final.  

The holders enjoyed the better of the first half but could not find a way past Dutch goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal, who produced a string of good saves to deny Julie Ertz and Alex Morgan the opening goal.

The United States continued their dominance after the break and finally made the breakthrough from the penalty spot after Stefanie van der Gragt was penalised for a foul on Morgan.
