Women’s football World Cup final is tonight: Make The Netherlands Great Again!

Can you feel that final fever for our OranjeLeeuwinnen? We do and it has a color too!

The women’s football WC final is happening tonight, and The Netherlands is going to be playing against the US.

Slowly but surely orange-fever is catching on in the Netherlands. There are watching parties in all the big cities and people are realizing that the ‘Oranjeleeuwinnen’  have an unique opportunity to pull off something historic.

The Netherlands are going to need all the support they can get as well. The US side are the outright favorites for the win and it wasn’t so that the Dutch had an easy day against Sweden. If you missed it, the semi-final was against Sweden and they won 1-0. If you need to know the match highlights, we’ve got you covered:

First time World Cup final for the Dutch

This is the first time that they have reached the finals in the world cup, to play against the US, the defending champions. The semi-final was watched by 5 million people! Were you one of them?

Meanwhile on social media, people are flocking to their channels to support our OranjeLeeuwinnen:


We might just jinx it a bit here, but there will be a huge celebration in Amsterdam on Tuesday if the team brings home the cup! So tune in at 5 pm to support them, get your orange clothes out, and join the celebrations! If you need to know how to blend in with the crazy Dutchies, you got some things to keep in mind, so check this out.

Of course, everyone has been trolling Donald Trump ahead of the games, because who wouldn’t? Remember the guy who made the “America first, The Netherlands second video”? He has another one out for this match!

Even VVD got on the same bandwagon to troll Trump too! Who doesn’t want to make the Netherlands great again, right? 😉

Are you going to be watching tonight? Let us know in the comments below!
