VARIOUS MORE STILLS OF TEAM LIFTING TROPHY STORY: The United States claimed a record-extending fourth women's World Cup with a 2-0 win over European champions the Netherlands thanks to goals by Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle on Sunday (July 7).

Rapinoe broke the deadlock with a 61st-minute VAR-awarded penalty before Lavelle rounded off the victory eight minutes later with a left-foot effort from just inside the area as the U.S. added to their 1991, 1999 and 2015 titles.

The Netherlands battled throughout and goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal kept out the U.S. for an hour with a series of superb saves in front of 57,900 fans at Lyon's Groupama Stadium.

But Van Veenendaal stood motionless when winger Rapinoe converted the spot kick to join team mate Alex Morgan and England's Ellen White on six goals at the tournament and Lavelle's attempt also eluded the Dutch keeper soon after.
