USA hold last training session ahead of WWC final against Netherlands
07 Jul 2019, 11:20 IST
Forward Megan Rapinoe trained with her USA team-mates on Saturday, continuing her recovery from a hamstring injury ahead of the Women's World Cup final meeting against Netherlands on Sunday.
Rapinoe missed the US team's semi-final win over England due to injury, but said she expects to be fit and available for the tournament decider.
The 35-year-old has been one of the stars of this World Cup, scoring four goals in the knockout stage while also courting attention off the pitch.
US President Donald Trump tweeted criticism of Rapinoe ahead of the quarter-finals after video surfaced in which she said she wouldn't attend a team celebration at the White House if invited.
The defending champions will be looking to wrap up their record fourth Women's World Cup title in Lyon on Sunday.
