USWNT set for World Cup semifinal rematch against England

The United States Women’s Soccer Team are set to kick off their SheBelieves Cup with a rematch against World Cup semifinal opponents England in Orlando in March.

This will be the third time the two sides have met in the last year.

In the 2019 SheBelieves Cup the USWNT came second to the Lionesses before beating them in the World Cup semifinal in July.

The Americans went on to win the World Cup, defeating the Netherlands 2-0 in the final.

Last year’s SheBelieves match between the USWNT and England was held in the Exploria Stadium — the same venue for this year’s match — and drew a crowd of 12,351.

The USWNT have won the cup twice and new manager Vlatko Andonovski will see it as an important step in his team’s preparation for Tokyo 2020.

Spain and Japan will also compete in the 2020 cup.

This is the fifth year of the SheBelieves Cup. The tournament is organised in a round-robin style with each team playing each other over a series of venues in three different cities.
