USA vs England (By: PlayMaker)
The 3-0 victory over Norwegian Women in the last quarter-final match helped England W to have a second consecutive semifinals in the world's most prestigious women's football tournament after 5 times of attendance. And to make history for the first time to the Women's World Cup finals, the team of Phil Neville needs to overcome the challenge called the USA W. After what has been shown since the beginning of the tournament with the full success of all five matches, many people have begun to hope for new achievement for Three Lions in this arena. In fact, this is the case when what Phil Neville's players show tends to get better after each game.
However, in the semi-finals here, with the opponent being the American Woman, the challenge will be much more difficult than the past matches. It is important to know that all 5 opponents that England encountered from the beginning of the tournament are all underrated names, while American Women are completely different when they are not only defending champions of the tournament but now is also the No. 1 team in FIFA ranking table.
In terms of force, American girls have also a collection of top stars in the world of women's football, namely Alex Morgan, Megan Rapione or Carli Lloyd. Besides, if considering the performance in this year's tournament, the American are also impressing with 5 wins, scoring 22 goals and only conceding twice.
However, it is impossible to forget that, England has also made great progress over the past time, and their World Cup journey this year has made many admire. Therefore, although not appreciated on the ability to go forward compared to the American Women, but the ability to create surprises from the Three Lions is still there.
USA passed over very strong sides Spain and France in 2 previous rounds but their performance is somewhat unconvincing, with 2 controversial penalties awarded against Spain and then any foul but not interested by referee in the quarter against France. In other side, England completed their 2 playoff games in quite comfortable way so now they will have a little bit advantage in terms of fitness and moral.
Even knowing it will be very difficult, but still can hope on the ability of coaching from Phil Neville to do something against USA in the clash here.
