    Until the next World Cup...

  2. 'The dopest party ever'

    USA 2-0 Netherlands

    Megan Rapinoe is looking forward to what's to come tonight (and probably tomorrow morning): "We are about to have the dopest party ever. It is about to be sunglasses season - glazed over eyes."

    On the game itself, Rapinoe said: "It was not tougher than expected. We already knew this team would be so tough. We knew they had the pedigree to win the championship but we were feeling positive at half time.

    "This increases the visibility but it takes it up another notch for sure. From a global perspective this is something we are proud of - to be growing the game as much as we can."

  3. 'Amazing group of players'

    FT: USA 2-0 Netherlands

    BBC One

    United States boss Jill Ellis speaking to BBC Sport: "This is an amazing group of players - they showed fantastic resilience.

    "They put their hearts and souls into this journey, I cannot thank them enough. I could barely speak immediately after the game but I told them they had made history and to enjoy it."

    Tom Garry's final report from Lyon is up on the website and you can read about all the individual awards here.

    Alistair Magowan has also written this nice piece on how the World Cup has changed women's football in the UK.

    And here's the thoughts of World Cup-winning manager Jill Ellis and double-Golden award winner Megan Rapinoe if you missed them earlier...

  5. When can you watch women's football next?

    Don't go back to your normal routines. If you have enjoyed the World Cup in France, go out and buy tickets to watch your local team. Go and observe all the talent on show in the Women's Super League across the UK.

    Where can you next watch women's football? Well, the WSL season kicks off on the weekend of 7 and 8 September. Manchester City will take on cross-city rivals Manchester United in their first-ever women's derby.

    Champions Arsenal begin at home to West Ham, while newly-promoted Tottenham go to Chelsea.

    The Women's Championship, which gets under way on the weekend of 17 and 18 August, sees newly-promoted sides Blackburn Rovers and Coventry United travel to Lewes and Crystal Palace respectively.

    And if you can't wait that long, there's a few teams in pre-season action. Arsenal Women will play Bayern Munich in the pre-season Emirates Cup before Unai Emery's men's side take on Lyon. And Liverpool Women are also joining their men on their pre-season tour to the US.

    Full WSL fixtures.

  6. 'Megan Repinoe is unreal'

    FT: USA 2-0 Netherlands

    "I feel so much pride right now," said USA midfielder Rose Lavelle.

    "I have learned so much from Megan Repinoe, I feel so honoured to step on the pitch at the same time as her. She is unreal."

  9. 'We are not ready to expand the tournament'

    FT: USA 2-0 Netherlands

    Alex Scott

    Ex-England international on BBC One

    I do not think we are ready to expand the World Cup. We have seen some disparity between the top teams and Thailand in this tournament, and we need to help them develop before introducing more teams.

  11. The best of the stats

    FT: USA 2-0 Netherlands

    The USA secured their fourth Women’s World Cup title (1991, 1999, 2015 and 2019), now winning twice as many Women’s World Cup tournaments as any other nation.

    The Netherlands have now lost their last seven matches against USA in all competitions by an aggregate score of 2-24.

    USA scored 26 goals at the World Cup, the most by a team at a single tournament in the competition’s history.

    Megan Rapinoe became the first player to score a penalty in a Women’s World Cup final, as well as being the oldest scorer in a final (34 years and 2 days).

    The USA do not apologise for wanting to be the best and they have that winning mentality that everyone else needs to get. They show up on the biggest occasions.
