This is it.

The 2019 Women’s World Cup final is here, as the USWNT face the Netherlands in Lyon on Sunday (Watch live, 11 a.m. ET online via Telemundo Deportes) with Jill Ellis’ side the heavy favorites to seal back-to-back World Cup titles.

But the Netherlands are the reigning European champions and their talented attacked should not be underestimated as both the U.S. and the Netherlands won all three of their group games.

The USWNT have won each of their knockout round games 2-1 and have made them all a little more difficult than they should have been, while the Netherlands beat Japan and Italy quite comfortably but battled in extra time against Sweden and have had a day less rest than the USA.

Megan Rapinoe comes back into the starting lineup and captains the USA, with Rose Lavelle fit enough to start and Sam Mewis comes in for Lindsey Horan in midfield.

Dutch star Lieke Martens has also shaken off an injury and will start for the Oranje.
