TEAM NEWS: England: Bardsley; Bronze, Bright, McManus, Stokes, Walsh, Christiansen, Kirby, Lawley, Taylor, White USA: Naeher, Sonnett, Dahlkemper, Davidson, Dunn, Long, Horan, Lloyd, Pugh, Morgan, Rapinoe


I’ll add the USA team when it’s announced. So since England thrashed France three more matches have been played. England drew 2-2 with Germany and the US drew 1-1 with France. The penultimate match has just finished and France managed to beat Germany 3-0 which is quite a turnaround.

So England, the USA and France are all on 4 points while Germany are on one point. England currently have a goal difference of +3 the USA have a goal difference of +1 and France have a goal difference of 0.

Basically either the USA or England will win this. England can win it with a draw but the USA would need a win

Some changes for both teams. What I would say is that while these are fairly solid starting 11s both of these teams have plenty of game changers on the bench.

So i’m very sleepy and already feel like i’ve watched too much not great football today so this needs to be good

There are two cameramen walking in front of the players for close up shots during the anthems and from the angle the BBC have it looks hilarious.

No Jonathan Pearce tonight so we might actually hear something about football

Big mix of experienced and new players in both teams. Both teams missing first choice players as well. As I mentioned earlier, it really could be all about the substitutes.

A minute’s silence before the start of the game in memory of those who died in the parkland school shooting. Very well observed.
