        The USA were crowned world champions for a record fourth time after a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in the Women's World Cup final in Lyon.

        Megan Rapinoe's penalty and a fine individual effort from Rose Lavelle did the damage for the defending champs who eventually overpowered the Dutch.

        VAR has been a hot topic during the competition, and again came to the fore when the USA took the lead. A review was called by French referee Stephanie Frappart after a high challenge from Barcelona defender Stefanie van der Gragt on USA striker Alex Morgan. After assessing replays, Frappart pointed to the spot and experienced winger Rapinoe - who missed her side's semi-final win over England - calmly slotted home. 

        The holders took control of the contest thereafter and boosted their reputation as the world's finest women's team by adding to their World Cup wins in 1991, 1999 and 2015. 

        Rapinoe was subsequently awarded the Golden Ball, for the tournament's best player, and her penalty meant she also shared the Golden Boot - with team-mate Morgan and England's Ellen White - having finished the competition with six goals.
