2015 FIFA Women's World Cup Final

The 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup Final was a professional women's soccer match that took place on 5 July 2015 at BC Place, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to determine the winner of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. It was played between Japan and the United States, in a rematch of the 2011 final. The stakes were high for both sides: if the United States won the match, it would be the only country to have won in three Women's World Cup finals; if Japan had won instead, then it would be the first soccer team, men's or women's, to win twice under the same coach since Vittorio Pozzo lead Italy to victory in the 1934 World Cup and the 1938 World Cup 77 years ago. Ultimately, the United States won 5–2, winning its first title in sixteen years and becoming the first team to win three Women's World Cup finals.
