USA found an early breakthrough via Christen Press in their Women’s World Cup semi-final clash with England on Tuesday night.

It came after some excellent and patient build-up play from the USA, in what was a frantic and thrilling opening period of the game.

Fortunately for England and Phil Neville though, Ellen White was on hand to drag them back into the encounter as she made it six goals in five games in the tournament with a brilliant finish.

That in turn sets up what should be a superb clash with both sides going for goals and playing attacking football despite the magnitude of the game.
