Final Score: Holland 0 USA 2 Well played the Eagles and congratulations. In the end, the best team won and that's how it should be. Megan Rapinhoe is the best female player in the world and her contribution throughout the tournament was immense.
Commiserations to Holland. They came with a game plan and for an hour they frustrated the American girls. USA got a break when they needed one and they took full advantage. That's how matches are won.
Jill Ellis.... the 'moosher' from Pompey.... is speaking to the BBC on the pitch. We're all very pleased for her. Why isn't she the manager of the ENGLAND women's team...? The FA should look long and hard at their selection processes.
The Match Award (I think you call it Most Valuable Player) will undoubtedly go to the Dutch goalkeeper who kept her team in the game almost single handedly. Top marks to her for her excellence.
Thanks to the French who have been marvellous hosts. The organisation and running of the last three weeks has been faultless. All the teams who have contributed so much have had their highs and lows.
This tournament has planted women's football in particular, and women's sport in general even more firmly into the global sporting calendar. We'll do it all again in four years time and we all know the standard we're going to have to rise to.
Next up over here is the European Championships. Sorry USA... you can't win that one
I want to see how England fare in that.
Emmanuel Macron has come out onto the pitch..... he's the only person in the stadium who has been booed today..!! That's usually reserved for the referee but she had an excellent game, got all her calls right and I think the officials throughout the tournament have been first class.
The various awards will take a while to go through. That's how it is these days. Again, congratulations to the winners.
USA are World Champions.
Now be worthy of it.
