The women’s football World Cup has reached the semifinal stage, and first up is England against the defending champions USA.
There seems to be a confidence about this England side, especially after their 3-0 win over Norway in the quarterfinals. But let’s remember who they are now facing. The US women’s team has won the World Cup three times and they have beaten today’s opponents 10 times out of 16 played. The US are favourites, justifiably.
With this in mind we’re going to side with American forward Megan Rapinoe to open the scoring. She scored both goals in the quarterfinals against France and did the same against Spain in the last 16. Additionally, she takes her country’s penalties, and in this age of VAR that’s very important.
Recommendation: Rapinoe (US) to score first, 1 pt, at 11/2, bet365
