USA Women News and Form
It has sort of been at tale of two halves in terms of the tournament from the Americans. They were totally untroubled on their way to a group win, picking up wins in all three of their games without conceding. In each of the three rounds of the knockouts though, they have gotten through by a 2-1 scoreline. That started against Spain, where really a little bit of fear crept into the USA game. Both of their goals in that win over the Spaniards were from the penalty spot.
Then in their tussle with host nation France in Paris, the USA were second best in terms of attacking threat and held on just a little bit at the end to post a 2-1 win. Then it was the same scoreline as they battled with England in the semi-finals. But while they have conceded in each of their three knockout games, they haven’t at any point looked like losing though. Their game management towards the end of fixtures has been wonderful. They, of course, having the scoring power to get themselves out of tight sports.
The USA are on a twelve-match winning streak. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last eleven. It is an eleven match winning streak that they are on in World Cup matches, going unbeaten now in thirteen (W12 D1). It’s such a phenomenal record that they have. The Americans have conceded in four of their last six games, so in that regard have perhaps been a bit below standard. Alex Morgan, who is in the Golden Boot mix is the 6/5 anytime goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on July 4th, 2019 at 9:10 p.m.)
Netherlands Women News and Form
The Dutch deserve some credit for getting this far. It is a strange thing to say, but they really haven’t been that great of a side. They weren’t totally convincing at any point through their group stage campaign but still managed to win all three games. A last-minute penalty got them past a really tough squeeze against Japan in the round of sixteen. Their most impressive game was when they produced a 2-0 win over Italy in the quarterfinals. The win over Italy was their eighth straight win in current form.
Then the Dutch were taken to extra time by Sweden in a cagey, relative low-quality semi-final. The Netherlands got their winner in the first half of extra time thanks to new Man Utd signing Jackie Groenen. The Dutch have scored at least two goals in four of their six games at the tournament, so there’s that. They have two clean sheets and they haven’t looked great at the back. The Netherlands have quality in Vivianne Miedema and Lieke Martens, who look at time to be the ones carrying the team.
How much change are they going to get out of the USA defence though? This is only the second World Cup campaign by the Dutch. Four years ago they fell at the first hurdle in the group stage. But then in the summer of 2017, they defied some big odds to walk out of the European Championships with the title. The Dutch, however, don’t look anywhere near as good two years on, as when they had that wonderful success. They may have the goals, they will have taken hope from how England carved out chances against the USA, but overall the Dutch are likely to be vulnerable against this USA side. The Netherlands have faced no-one near the quality of the Americans on their way to the final.
