U.S. vs Japan women's soccer World Cup 2015 open thread

If you're not too hungover from celebrating American freedom from uppity British tea drinkers on Saturday, you can grab a beer (or 12) and tune in to cheer on Team USA as it takes on Japan in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup final tonight.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET and it will air on FOX in the United States.

This is the fourth final for the female American squad, which has never finished lower than third place on the world stage. However, the girls face a stiff test in Japan, who have played spoilsports against the Americans in the past, most recently in 2011 when they were heavy favorites. Star players to watch include forwards Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan, defender Christie Rampone and goalkeeper Hope Solo.
