Three of Arsenal’s Women’s squad will take part in this Sunday’s Women’s World Cup Final, as Netherlands defeated Sweden in last night’s semi-final after extra-time. The victory sets up a World Cup Final showdown with the USA.
Arsenal’s Vivianne Miedema and Danielle van de Donk played the full 120 minutes and will start, fitness permitting, in Sunday’s showpiece final. New Gunners signing Jill Roord came on as a half-time substitute. Sari van Veenendaal, who captained the side, and Dominique Bloodworth will both start Sunday’s final too. Both players left Arsenal this summer.

Roord scored the winner for the Netherlands in their opening game of the tournament against New Zealand, while Miedema has three goals in France. USA will be big favourites, but Netherlands are the current reigning European champions. The game takes place on Sunday afternoon at 4pm UK time.
