England eased to a 3-0 quarter final win over Norway at the World Cup. It was a fantastic performance and Ellen White was among the goals again. She is now the joint leading goalscorer at the tournament with five. White is at 3/1 odds in the anytime goalscorer market * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 30th, 2019 at 9:02 p.m.). For her scoring form, that’s a fairly big price, but that is because England are facing such a good American team here and are underdogs.

Without question, their win over Norway was their best performance of the World Cup 2019. They were in control from the very first moments of the game and never looked back. They were fantastic in taking their chances in front of goal and maintaining their control throughout. That was their fifth win on the bounce for their current form. They have conceded only one goal in their five World Cup matches so far, which was in their opening game against Scotland. That’s actually a surprising output because they weren’t looking too great at the back prior to the tournament. Have they peaked just at the perfect time?

It has been impressive. But now in order to move ahead and reach the final, they have to find a way to keep the USA attack quiet. That’s a tall order. It is seven wins in their last eight games that England have taken (L1). They are back at the stage where they fell four years ago in Canada. That was a cruel semi-final exit against Japan after the Lionesses has scored an own goal in stoppage time. Will they be able to make amends this time around by pulling off a major upset and knocking out the reigning champions?

USA Women News and Form

The USA were untested through their group stage campaign. They have been tested much more severely in the knockout rounds, but still, really haven’t looked like actually losing. They needed two converted spot kicks to edge past Spain 2-1 in the round of sixteen. It was a success by the scoreline in their quarter-final tie against host nation France. The USA had managed to score very early in the match which dampened the enthusiasm of the Parisian crowd. Despite a late rally by the French, the USA looked relatively comfortable.

In each of their previous eight World Cup campaigns now, the Americans have made it to the semi-finals. It’s such a wonderful history that they have at the tournament. The star of the show has been Megan Rapinoe who netted both of their goals against France, as she had done against Spain. Heading into the tournament, Alex Morgan was all the rage, but she hasn’t scored since netting five in their opening game against Thailand. Rapinoe now has pulled level with her teammate and England’s Ellen White on five goals at the head of the scoring charts.

The last time the USA lost a World Cup match was back in 2011. They had lost against Sweden in the group stage and then on penalties in the final against Japan. The USA are so physically strong and quick. They play at a tempo few sides can stand up to. Since their 2-2 draw at the SheBelievesCup in March against England, the USA have put together an eleven match winning streak. They have conceded in just three of their last eleven. Put it all together it is going to take something very special from the English to bring this American team down. The USA are on a ten-match winning streak in World Cup matches, undefeated in twelve.
