World Cup: Do men or women rule US football?

Soccer isn't a sport traditionally associated with American excellence - for a start the rest of the world calls it football. But in this year's World Cup, the women's team has had a great run. On Sunday they face Japan in the final.

If they win, it will be their third World Cup victory. The US men's team can't make that claim - but their stars make much more money than the women. When it comes to the beautiful game in America, who has the upper hand - men or women? The BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan and her teammate Anthony Zurcher have more on the country's growing love of the game.

Filmed by Maxine Collins. Produced by Mat Morrison.
