LYON, France (KWTX) Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle scored second-half goals to help the United States defeat Netherlands 2-0 and win the country's fourth-ever World Cup title.

It was scoreless until the 61st minute when Rapinoe fired in her 50th-career international goal from the penalty spot.

Lavelle scored eight minutes later on a brilliant individual effort, moving to her left and blasting the ball from just inside the top of the box with her left foot to the opposite post.

That goal equaled 26 total for the Americans this year -- the highest-total ever for one team in a World Cup.
