The old and new worlds will collide again on the field of play.
The United States women’s soccer team will face England at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup semifinals. The game will take place in Lyon, France, at Lyon Stadium amid what undoubtedly will be a raucous atmosphere.
USA booked its place in the semifinals Friday with a classic 2-1 win over France. Megan Rapinoe scored both USA’s goals in the victory, which put USA in the World Cup semis for the record eighth consecutive time.
England has proven to be a formidable team this summer, topping Group D with three wins and three games, then beating Cameroon in the Round of 16 and Norway in the quarterfinals by a combined score of 6-0.
However, England’s Lionesses won’t faze USA, the reigning world champion and betting favorite to win this World Cup in France.
