England vs USA (By: Hardcore)
Second consecutive semi for Lionesses after their 2015 Canada campaing where they reached the semis, unfortunately Japan stopped them there from going further and securing the final game with USA (they still won the bronze medal and 3rd place after beating Germany). England haven't conceded in past 4 games but now they face a different kind of offensive elite opponent in USA, in all games of this tournament USA scored during first 12 minutes.
The Lionesses have impressed so far but the real challenge lies ahead and stands in their way. USA have not only won the last World Cup in Canada 4 years ago but they are also the number one ranked team overall. I believe in England and they can score here, possibly via White in attack with her strong physical presence. She's been very good throughout the whole tournament and her strong presence could give USA a world of trouble (their conceded goal against France was from the tallest woman on the pitch).
Phill Neville is doing a splendid job with this group and he's so close to the ultimate glory of dehtroning the dominant force before the final where they could potentially end up meeting Netherlands or Sweden. Rapinoe has been superb for USA and she's confident from penalties as well.
USA maybe tend to receive too much media praise for their play and they are a tad bit overrated, but I would say they're overrated in defence not in offence. Neville's goal is definitely scoring and using White in attack so overall this game should have goals on both ends.
