early spotter

2′ England 0-0 USWNT

Early chance for the visitors as Smith shows that pace and runs straight down the left flank. She cuts inside and shoots, but Earps is able to land on the near post of hers and meet up comfortably.

A show of solidarity

The Lionesses planned to show their support for the US team in front of the cameras tonight.

The show of solidarity comes after the results of an independent investigation into allegations of abusive behavior and sexual misconduct in the US National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) were released on Monday.

Both teams gather in the center circle, holding a banner that simply reads: ‘Protect the players’.

There is also a minute of silence for the victims of the Indonesian stadium tragedy.

Here come the teams!

The lights dim at Wembley, the music turns up, England legend Jill Scott takes out the still-gleaming Euro 2022 trophy and the teams exit the tunnel.

England’s Class of ’72 form a guard of honor for this summer’s champions and we’ll have the national anthems in this vibrant setting…

England Women’s Anniversary Celebrations

The Football Association has dedicated tonight’s international marquee to the 50th anniversary of the England women’s senior team.

The FA, of course, banned women’s football in 1921 and it wasn’t until nearly 50 years later that that ban was lifted.

Tonight, players from the 1972 squad, which played England’s first full international against Scotland (a 3-2 victory at Greenock, near Glasgow), will also receive a bespoke English cap as part of the celebrations of the night.

They will also line up with the current Lionesses before kick-off.

wembley way

The rain may have been pouring down hard, but the hordes are heading up Wembley Way excited for this one.

It will be the first time the US has played at Wembley since Megan Rapinoe and Becky Sauerbrunn led their teammates to a fourth Olympic gold medal in 2012, but it is the first meeting between England and the USWNT at this stadium.

Team News Headlines

Not Leah Williamson, of course, for England, so Millie Bright wears the armband for the hosts at Wembley and Alex Greenwood steps into the baseline. There’s a starting top for Euro 2022 winner Chloe Kelly alongside Beth Mead and, in jersey number 9, Lauren Hemp.

Trinity Rodman, 21, only made her USWNT debut in February, but she makes her first start tonight, joining Sophia Smith and Megan Rapinoe in an American attack that truly blends youth with experience.

head to head

The US and England will meet for the 19th time tonight, with the USWNT far ahead when it comes to head-to-head record: W12 E4 L2.

However, seven of the last eight meetings between the teams have been decided by one goal or less, so the odds are in favor of another competitive affair.

The teams have only played twice before in England: in 2011, the Lionesses won 2-1 at Leyton Orient and in 2015, the USA ran out 1-0 at MK Dons.

the stage is set

England’s Euro 2022 final against Germany at Wembley set a new record of 87,192 for the highest-attended match at a European Championship for men or women.

Tonight’s game at the 90,000-capacity stadium has been announced as a sellout, so another milestone looms.

Sarina Wiegman’s side will get a reminder of her special summer when they walk into her locker room…

mead so motivated

England Player of the Year Beth Mead wants to avenge her 2019 World Cup semi-final loss to the USA tonight.

That match served as Alex Morgan’s goal celebration and while Mead took the jokes in stride, he knows the matchup will serve as a marker.

“We’re more coffee drinkers than tea drinkers, so that’s fine,” Mead laughed when asked about that meeting and that moment.

“It was a difficult result to accept, but it has given us more hunger and motivation to test ourselves against a world-class team. We can’t wait to see where we are.”

‘Major World Cup prep for USWNT’

USA head coach Vlatko Andonovski is trying to build youthful hopes with his trusty players and reckons that playing in front of a partisan Wembley crowd will provide crucial experience for his roster ahead of the World Cup.

“We wanted to go through adversity and find a way to get through it. And what better way to do that than to play in front of a packed stadium, 90,000 people, against England and Spain later on?

“They (older players) know what it takes to win big games and play in environments like this and be successful. But then we have the next generation … the younger ones who have to experience this, which I think is going to be the closest we can get to playing in the actual World Cup game.

“I’m really looking forward to showing what women’s football means to the world, because this is the next stage in the evolution of the game, the support of the game.”

Has the gap between the USWNT and England narrowed?

The last time these teams met, at the SheBelieves Cup in March 2020, the US won comfortably 2-0 and England looked second best on the entire field.

Has the gap narrowed since then? Here’s what our writers say…

Steph Yang: I think the gap has narrowed from a talent perspective, but also from a preparation perspective, given that England are coming off their successful European Championship. The USWNT will mostly have a lot of players who have just finished a very long and intense NWSL season, with the title play-offs still to come for six teams.

Flo Lloyd Hughes: The gap has definitely narrowed, largely due to the departure of Phil Neville and the arrival of one of the best coaches in the world in Wiegman. The increasing competition in the WSL and Champions League has also raised the standards, technical ability and athleticism in the English and European game.

Charlotte Harpur: At the end of 2020, for the first time, the Lionesses’ technical performance strategy was separated from the men’s department. This has allowed the women’s system to implement its own strategies and control its own budgets. Also, the WSL has been completely professional for five years and having that competitiveness on a national level is rubbing off.

Thompson’s Big Break

Alyssa Thompson’s call has certainly caused a stir.

The high school athlete played for the US at this year’s U-20 World Cup in Costa Rica, but back home, he plays for an academy men’s team in the MLS NEXT youth development league.

“It’s a great exposure for her and it’s a good experience for us to have the opportunity to work with her,” said Vlatko Andonovski. “What happens from there, we’ll see.

“We’re excited about her potential. Alyssa is a very creative player. We think she has the ability to play as a winger, but not a classic winger. She has a very good understanding of how to move to the next channel on the inside and expose teams in those areas. I have no doubt that it will fit well into our system.”

What shape is the United States in?

The US arrive in Europe for their doubleheader (playing Spain on Tuesday after tonight’s match) on a 13-game winning streak.

The world champions and SheBelieves Cup champions outscored their opponents 52-2 in that time and kept nine consecutive clean sheets before conceding a goal against Nigeria on September 6.

Head coach Vlatko Andonovski will be without Alex Morgan due to a knee injury, but Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle are experienced threats and Morgan’s absence means 17-year-old Alyssa Thompson gets a chance to make her debut. in the senior team.

The likes of Mallory Pugh, Sophia Smith, Ashley Hatch and Trinity Rodman also make up a formidable set of attacking options.
