    Match Thread : England Women vs USA Womens World Cup Semifinal


    5 Not allowed!
    Thought I'd create a thread for tonights match for those who are going to watch/follow. With the USA being the current World Champions and favourites to win the competition its going to be a tough match for the Lionesses but USA have shown they can be shaky at the back so if we play at our best I think we can do it.

    Venue : Parc Olympique Lyonnais
    Kick-off : 8pm BST

    I really, really hope that Neville doesn't go with Duggan again tonight as shes been quite poor as she comes back from injury. I'd play Carney instead, though I think she'll probably be used as an impact sub. Key players for England are Bronze, White and Houghton. I'm going for a 3-2 England win - what does everyone else think?

    Come on you Lionesses!!!

      Duggan looks like a player being selected on reputation rather than form - I think Mead would be the better option.

      I'll be watching.
      The crossbars are too high for the keepers but it's a semi final of tournament football at the end of the day!

      Millie Bright's an accident waiting to happen at the back. She's slow and has got away with her sloppy errors so far.

      The States will punish any mistakes from her or others - they've got far too much class going forward.

      Very happy to be bounced here as I'd love England to progress, but I think it'll be a narrow 0-2 defeat against the #1 ranked side and holders.

      The Guardian pod were speculating that Neville might deploy Lucy Bronze in midfield instead of fullback as he did the last time the teams met in a 2-2 draw, although I think she's probably best staying where she is and taking care of the dangerous Rapinoe.

      Should be a cracking game UNLESS the yanks score early and then just shut up shop, which they are wont to do.

      I've watched England throughout this tournament and she is definitely the weak link. Undoubtedly bailed out too often by Steph Houghton who really is a class defender.

      Make no mistake about this game - it will be won and lost on the English defensive display, because both sides are potent going forward.

      Looking forward to this.

      Semi Final against the Yanks?

      Going to be a huge TV audience for this one.

      Must agree that she is the weak link. With whom could we replace her

      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.
