England will meet the USA in the first of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 semi-finals at the Groupama Stadium (Décines-Charpieu) in Lyon, France on Tuesday evening (local time).
The US go into the game as the defending World Cup title holders and the number one ranked team in the world. They’ve already accounted for one major force in European football in defeating host nation France 2-1 in their quarter-final tie.
England, No.3 in the world rankings, put on their best performance of the tournament to date when beating Norway 3-0 in their quarter-final match-up.
USA Women v England Women Head-To-Head
Historically the USA has had the better of things against England down the years, with England having lost 10, drawn two and won four of their previous 16 meetings with the USA. They are yet to even score against them at a World Cup.
However, England drew 2-2 with the USA at this year’s four-team invitational SheBelieves Cup in the USA, which England then went on to win for the first time.
