England vs. Spain

The Women's World Cup final is set after Spain defeated tournament cohost Australia Wednesday 3 to 1, with Spain facing England Sunday (6 am ET, Fox) in the first all-European title match since 2003. Runners-up Sweden and Australia will play for third place Saturday. Watch recaps of the semifinals here.

Both finalists are looking to win their first World Cup title Sunday, in what will be a rematch of last year's European Championship quarterfinals, which England won 2 to 1. England's Lionesses—the team's nickname—have appeared in twice as many World Cups as Spain ("La Roja," or "The Red One"), having qualified for six tournaments to Spain's three. The final match-up will likely see the return of England's Lauren James, the Chelsea forward who was suspended for two games after stepping on Nigeria's Michelle Alozie (see video).

Women's soccer has seen significant growth in recent years, with this year's tournament seeing a record 2 billion viewers over the monthlong competition.

In related news, US women's coach Vlatko Andonovski resigned yesterday, following the squad's underperformance in this year's tournament.
