USA win Women's World Cup

The USA have become the first nation to win the Women's World Cup three times after beating Japan 5-2 in the final.

Lauren Holiday volleyed home after Carli Lloyd had scored a brace in the opening five minutes in Vancouver.

Captain Lloyd completed a 13-minute hat-trick with a wonder goal on 16 minutes - the fastest hat-trick in Women's World Cup history.

Yuki Ogimi and a Julie Johnston own goal gave Japan hope before Tobin Heath added USA's fifth.
