Alex Morgan

The U.S. women national team is headed back to the Women World Cup final. A 1-2 win over England means the Americans will play for a second straight title and a fourth overall, with either the Netherlands or Sweden waiting in the final on Sunday in Lyon.

Christen Press, a surprise starter in place of Megan Rapinoe, scored in the 10th minute, only to have Ellen White answer for England nine minutes later. Alex Morgan, playing on her 30th birthday, restored the Americans lead in the 31st minute, though, and that edge was preserved by goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher, whose penalty save on Steph Houghton in the 84th minute helped the U.S. overcome a VAR decision that went England way.

The two sides impressed in their respective quarterfinal wins, with the USA blitzing France from the start and eventually holding on for a 2-1 win thanks to a pair of goals from Rapinoe.

England thrashed Norway 3-0, with White, like Rapinoe, joining Morgan and Sam Kerr atop the golden boot standings by scoring her fifth goal in the win.
