It's FIFA Women's World Cup 2019 semi final day and the England Women's team is ready to face the reigning champions and world number 1 side USA.

England is the only team left in the last four who haven't reached a major final in recent times. Netherlands and Sweden the other two semi finalists kick off tomorrow.

The Lionesses are full of confidence, despite never having progressed to a major final. They have a full fit squad with players who are eager to showcase their skills on the world stage. Ellen White is on course to win the golden boot, she has 5 goals as do Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan-all 3 will play a vital role in today's game.

England have a manager, in Phil Neville, who wants to prove any doubters wrong about his ability to manage a side and the FA are keen to see a return on the massive investment they have made into women's football.

The Lionesses have already secured a place at the Tokyo Olympics (if a GB side is allowed to compete) but defeating the USA and having an opportunity to be World Champions is all that anybody is focussing on at the moment.
