Why you should back the USWNT 

The Americans, who have won the last two World Cups, remain the favorites despite showing some vulnerability. After being humbled in the tournament opener, the U.S. bounced back strong with a 6-1 win over New Zealand. The Americans decided to go with a defensive approach in their third game vs. Australia and ended up with a draw. The U.S. has had the Netherlands' number of late, winning their last four meetings with it.

Forward Alex Morgan has also been a huge part of the American offense. In 183 matches, she has posted 111 goals. The 32-year-old, who plays for the Orlando Pride of the National Women's Soccer League, has been a member of the national team since 2010. Since the start of the year, Morgan has compiled four goals, including one in the win over New Zealand on Saturday.  

Why you should back the Netherlands 

The Dutch first played internationally in 1971, and have reached the finals of the UEFA Women's Championship in 2009, 2013 and 2017, winning the tournament title in 2017 as the host nation. The Netherlands has also played in two FIFA Women's World Cups, placing 13th in 2015 and finished as runners-up in 2019. That year, they were defeated by the United States 2-0 in the finals. The Netherlands are No. 4 in the FIFA world rankings.

The Dutch are led by 25-year-old forward Vivianne Miedema, who plays club ball for Arsenal. In 99 matches for the national team, she has scored 81 goals, including eight during the group stage. She opened the Olympics with four goals against Zambia in a 10-3 rout, before scoring twice in each of the other games. She is her country's most prolific scorer since joining the squad in 2013.
