Live 2015 Women’s World Cup Final: United States vs. Japan

Welcome to Culturedarm’s live blog on the final day of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Overcoming England and Germany respectively in the Semi-Finals – with England going on to take third place, beating Germany 1-0 courtesy of a penalty in extra-time yesterday in Edmonton – today’s Final sees United States vs. Japan. Japan are the defending champions, having triumphed over the United States on penalties at the World Cup in Germany in 2011. But the United States are the higher ranked side, and already gained some measure of revenge by defeating Japan to take Olympic gold in London in 2012. The match will commence in just over twenty minutes, from BC Place, Vancouver.
