The final will kick off at 5 a.m. eastern time from Stadium Australia in Sydney and will be broadcast live on FOX and Telemundo.

England knocked off host Australia on Wednesday morning 3-1 to advance to the final. Lauren Hemp had the game winner in the 71st minute after Sam Kerr equalized for the hosts in the 63rd. Alessia Russo iced the win for the Lionesses with an 86th minute strike.
