Megan Rapinoe has overcome a hamstring injury to return to the United States' starting XI for the Women's World Cup final, while Lieke Martens has also been handed a start for Netherlands following a fitness test.

USA forward Rapinoe, who has scored five goals in France, missed the semi-final win over England with a "slight hamstring strain", but trained the following day and said all week she expected to be fit.

Martens' status was less assured, the Barcelona star having come off at half-time in the last-four win over Sweden due to a toe injury she sustained when celebrating her winner against Japan in the round of 16.

However, despite not being involved in the portion of training open to the media on Saturday, she is fit enough to take her place in Sarina Wiegman's side.

Christen Press, who replaced Rapinoe and scored the first goal against England, reverts back to the bench as one of two changes in the USA team, with Sam Mewis also coming in for Lindsey Horan.

The Dutch have made just one change, Anouk Dekker replacing Merel van Dongen.

Lieke Martens will have a fitness test on the morning of the Women's World Cup final between Netherlands and the United States.

Martens, who plays her club football at Barcelona, was forced off in the Dutch's semi-final victory over Sweden on Wednesday because of a foot problem she suffered when celebrating her last-16 winner against Japan.

The 26-year-old was not involved in the part of training open to the media on Saturday, having done a separate recovery programme the previous day.

Martens had said she hoped to be fit to play in the final after the victory over the Swedes and Netherlands coach Sarina Wiegman confirmed her star forward would be assessed prior to kick-off on Sunday.

"She's preparing for the game," Wiegman said. "We're not sure if she can start but we're working on it.

"We don't know the outcome yet, so we'll decide tomorrow morning."

Lieke Martens had a separate recovery programme away from Netherlands' main training session on Friday as she bids to get fit for the Women's World Cup final against the United States.

The Barcelona star, who was voted player of the tournament when the Dutch became European champions on home soil two years ago, came off at half-time of the semi-final victory over Sweden on Wednesday due to a lingering foot issue.

Martens injured her toe during the celebrations after her late winner in the last 16 against Japan when team-mate Jill Roord stepped up on it and, despite playing 90 minutes in the quarter-final win over Italy, the 26-year-old said she was in pain from the start of the Sweden game.

When Netherlands trained in front of the media on Friday, Martens was in the gym away from the main group.

Asked on Wednesday whether she was hopeful of facing USA, Martens had said: "As a player you always want to play the biggest game of your career and this is one of the biggest ones I'm going to hopefully play.

"I'm going to do the recovery with the medical staff, I really believe in them, I'm looking forward every single day."

USA also have concerns over a star forward, Megan Rapinoe having missed the last-four victory over England due to a "slight strain" in her hamstring.

Rapinoe has since trained, though, and she expects to be fit to face the Dutch.

Lieke Martens is counting on Netherlands' medical staff to get her fit for the Women's World Cup final after the Barcelona star lasted just 45 minutes in Wednesday's last-four win over Sweden.

The 26-year-old has been troubled by a foot injury since team-mate Jill Roord stepped on her toe when celebrating Martens' late winner in the last-16 victory against Japan.

Martens did not train prior to facing Italy in the next round and though she completed 90 minutes then, the forward was withdrawn at half-time on Wednesday due to the pain.

Netherlands went on to win 1-0 in extra time thanks to a goal from Jackie Groenen midweek, though there will be concern over whether Martens can face the United States in Sunday's final.

"As a player you always want to play the biggest game of your career and this [final] is one of the biggest ones I'm going to hopefully play," she said.

"I'm going to do the recovery with the medical staff, I really believe in them, I'm looking forward every single day."

Martens admitted she had no problem being replaced by Roord at half-time given she had been feeling pain in her foot from the start of the game.

"Didn't feel good," Martens replied when asked about her foot.

"For me, it's easy. If I'm not 100 per cent fit then I want another girl to come in and give 100 per cent. That's easy.

"The most important thing is the team is better when one girl is 100 per cent."
