There was a little bit of everything in Sunday's World Cup final. The goalkeepers demonstrated their class, VAR played a prominent role, and the United States showed no mercy.

In a night full of drama, Megan Rapinoe's penalty and Rose Lavelle's left-footed effort gave the USWNT a 2-0 win over the Netherlands and a second straight World Cup title.

Words can only do so much to convey the emotions of the 90 minutes. Here's a collection of the best photos from the showpiece event:
