After a thrilling month of outstanding goals, full-blooded tackles and more than a few questionable refereeing decisions, it's all down to the final game at the 2015 Women's World Cup.

In a rematch of the 2011 World Cup final, the USA will take on Japan for the right to call themselves world champions.

Here is all the key viewing info you need to ensure you can watch the dramatic conclusion to an excellent tournament.

Date: Sunday, July 5

Time: 7 p.m. (ET)/12 a.m. (BST, June 6)

TV: Fox Sports (US), BBC Three (UK), British Eurosport (UK)

Live Stream: BBC iPlayerFox Soccer 2Go and Fox Sports Go

The USA were the first to book their place in the final, as they overcame tournament favourites Germany.

Celia Sasic missed a penalty for Die Nationalelf, but Carli Lloyd made no mistake when she converted a spot-kick of her own. Kelley O'Hara's first international goal sealed the deserved win for the USWNT.

Japan were somewhat more fortunate to find themselves in the final, after being outplayed for large swathes of the game by England.

With honours even as the match approached extra time, Japan's enjoyed a huge slice of luck courtesy of Laura Bassett's disastrous own goal:

The Japanese have played well throughout the tournament though, so the final is unlikely to be a completely one-sided affair.

As Opta Joe notes, the Nadeshiko have enjoyed a successful run in the competition, and have never been behind at any stage:

Japan will take great heart having won the 2011 final, with ESPN Stats & Info reporting Japan's promising recent record against the Yanks.

Technically assured and defensively organised, Japan can certainly cause the U.S. some problems.

However, the Americans are rightly considered the favourites for the tie.

As ESPN's Paul Carr notes, U.S. are experienced competitors in World Cup finals.

Jill Ellis' side boast some of the world's best players throughout their ranks, and while in forward areas they have not always lived up to their potential in Canada, they remain as imperious as ever at the back.

The U.S. have conceded just once in their six games in the competition, scored by Australia in their opening game.

Women's football journalist Kieran Theivam has been impressed:

The form of Hope Solo in goal and the likes of Becky Sauerbrunn in defence make the prospect of Japan scoring a fairly slim one, while the physicality that Abby Wambach et al can bring in midfield and up front can put the Japanese under similar pressure England subjected them to.

It's set to be a thrilling game in Vancouver, with Norio Sasaki's side likely to counter using fluid movement and quick passing, but the Americans will be too strong for them this time around.

Expect the USWNT to be celebrating a deserved World Cup win on the final whistle.
