Betting Tip: USA @ 17/20 with williamhill

USA Women are the best female team on the planet. Therefore, make sure you back them to win Sunday’s final in Vancouver, with Jill Ellis’ side making short work of Germany in the previous round.

The States have been largely flawless in Canada, opening with a 3-1 win against Australia before keeping five consecutive clean sheets to make their way to the final with the minimum of fuss. Colombia, China and then the Germans had no answer during the knockout stage and we’re expecting Japan to fall similarly short in this encounter.

The USA have already won two World Cups and they have continued their tradition of reaching the final stages of a major tournament, with captain Carli Lloyd and substitute Kelley O’Hara adding the late goals that saw them past Germany.

Japan looked to be heading into extra-time during their semi-final match against England before that agonising Laura Bassett own goal and a late winner was required to see off Australia in the quarter-finals.

The Japanese adopt a similarly defence-first approach to opponents USA, although whether they have the attacking quality remains to be seen and we’re happy to back the States to win this match and subsequently the World Cup.
