2015 FIFA Women's World Cup Final: Everything You Need to Know About US-Japan

The Americans have a chance at third world title.

Here are three things you need to know about the final:

The game will be the rubber match between both nations. In the 2011 World Cup title game, Japan defeated the U.S. on penalties after the game ended 2-2 following extra time.

3. Oh my Lloyd

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Carli Lloyd, 32, is not only the team's captain, she's also Team USA's top scorer with three goals. Her well-executed penalty-kick goal against Germany remains one for the ages.

Although the goals are nice, Lloyd is looking to lift the trophy on Sunday night.

"I've just been training my butt off the last 12 years. These are the moments I live for," she told ESPN. "This is kind of when I roll up my sleeves up and say to myself, 'I need to step up.'"
