Fans hyped for World Cup final

Team USA and Netherlands fans get hyped in Lyon, France, before the women's World Cup final kick off.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).


Forward Lieke Martens was named in the starting lineup for the Netherlands in their women's World Cup final in Lyon, France on Sunday (July 7) against the United States, who are starting winger Megan Rapinoe after she sat out the semi-final.

Rapinoe, who has scored five goals in helping the U.S. to reach their fifth World Cup final, missed the 2-1 win over England because of a slight hamstring strain.

The 34-year-old takes the place of Christen Press who scored the opening goal in the semi-final.

Midfielder Rose Lavelle also starts despite fears over a knock she received in the same match.

Samantha Mewis starts alongside her in place of Lindsey Horan who is dropped to the bench.
