Helen Lander welcome to the Orlando

City Stadium Florida. It has been

0:00:300:00:37

quite a warm day. The sun has gone

down and there's a slight chill in

0:00:370:00:42

the air. We are moments away from

England's final match of the

0:00:420:00:47

SheBelieves Cup, taking on the USA.

You can see them coming out behind

0:00:470:00:50

me right there. England with their

fantastic result so far, a 4-1 win

0:00:500:00:58

against France, a 2-2 draw against

Germany, England need a draw to win

0:00:580:01:02

the tournament for the first time.

I'm quite -- how oppressed have you

0:01:020:01:08

been with the Lionesses so far in?

They came out of the blocks so well

0:01:080:01:12

against France with a fantastic

performance. They were less

0:01:120:01:16

impressive against Germany. Phil

Neville was disappointed with their

0:01:160:01:19

passing. They can definitely

improve. We have come here and got a

0:01:190:01:26

win and a draw, better than we have

done in the SheBelieves Cup before.

0:01:260:01:30

But they are here to win. They are

talking about going to to toe, going

0:01:300:01:37

full throttle, so that is what we

are expecting, a full on attacking

0:01:370:01:42

performance tonight.

Thank you, Jen,

we will have you back at half-time,

0:01:420:01:45

the commentary team is Sue Smith and

Vicki Smart. We will hear from them

0:01:450:01:49

in just a moment, but first the

national anthem starting with the

0:01:490:01:55

USA, any moment now.

0:01:550:02:02

USA, any moment now.

The national

anthem of England followed by the

0:02:030:02:05

National anthem of the United States

of America.

0:02:050:02:13

"God Save The Queen" PLAYS.

0:02:250:02:33

CHEERING

0:02:500:02:59

"The Star-Spangled Banner" PLAYS.

0:02:590:03:13

# O'er the ramparts we watched

were so gallantly streaming

0:03:210:03:27

# And the rockets' red glare

The bombs bursting in air

0:03:270:03:35

# Gave proof through the night

that our flag was still there

0:03:350:03:43

# O Say does that star-spangled

banner yet wave

0:03:430:03:51

# O'er the land of the free and the

home of the brave? #

0:03:520:04:00

CHEERING

0:04:060:04:11

The crowd are ready and England are

on the verge of history. The first

0:04:180:04:22

full of macros within their grasp. A

driver do it but the world champions

0:04:220:04:28

stand in their way.

We hope to bring

you a real cracker, Sue Smith. I

0:04:280:04:32

can't wait. It just shows how far

England have come. When they played

0:04:320:04:38

Germany and drew with Germany who

were ranked number two in the world,

0:04:380:04:41

we were disappointed, so that shows

you the quality that England have

0:04:410:04:45

now got and the belief they have got

that they can beat the best teams in

0:04:450:04:50

the world, whether that is Germany

or the US and I think that is the

0:04:500:04:57

positive for Phil Neville and his

Lionesses.

0:04:570:05:06

Lionesses.

And how much confidence

that opening 4-1 win over France

0:05:060:05:09

have given this England side?

It was

a fantastic performance defensively

0:05:090:05:14

and going forward, and how clinical

they were in front of goal. They

0:05:140:05:18

made opportunities, and they took

them. The fact that England now have

0:05:180:05:21

goal-scorers all over the pitch, it

is not

0:05:210:05:30

is not just the Centre permits, but

the midfielder is chipping in, you

0:05:300:05:33

have defenders looking dangerous

from set pieces.

I just think it is

0:05:330:05:38

a real positive England side from

the fence right the way through to

0:05:380:05:41

the attacking line-up. That win over

France gives England the advantage

0:05:410:05:43

when it comes to goal difference and

that is why I'd rather after night,

0:05:430:05:46

but a draw against the United

States, although they did beat them

0:05:460:05:50

in the SheBelieves Cup last year, is

no mean feat, they are to achieve

0:05:500:05:53

it.

It is going to be tough, and

everyone knows that. England will be

0:05:530:05:57

prepared, but America will come

straight at them. They are very fit

0:05:570:06:01

and athletic, they like to get the

ball out wide and get good delivery

0:06:010:06:05

into the box. They world-class

players. England will be ready for

0:06:050:06:10

that. They have to be brave. They

have to get as much on the ball as

0:06:100:06:14

they have done in the last two

games, a little bit better than they

0:06:140:06:18

did against Germany, when they were

sloppy, defensively, but they need

0:06:180:06:22

that bravery going forward, like

they showed against France.

It will

0:06:220:06:27

either be the USA or England who

will win the SheBelieves Cup this

0:06:270:06:30

evening. France beating Germany 3-0

in the earlier game. We will prepare

0:06:300:06:36

for a minute's silence that will be

held to honour the victims of the

0:06:360:06:41

high school

0:06:410:06:47

high school shooting in Parkland,

Florida, in which 17 people lost

0:06:480:06:51

their lives.

0:06:510:06:52

Ladies gentlemen, we ask that you

please rise and journey Marjorie

0:07:130:07:21

Stoneman Douglas soccer team and the

players on the field in a moment of

0:07:210:07:24

silence, as we honour the lives of

the victims, as we express our

0:07:240:07:36

support and solidarity for those

affected by the tragic events that

0:07:360:07:41

occurred in Parkland, Florida, on

February 14.

0:07:410:07:52

An emotional night for the friends

and family of the students who lost

0:08:470:08:52

their lives in the Parkland school

shooting. We saw banners of Alyssa

0:08:520:08:56

Alhadeff who played for the school

and a local team. Her team-mates and

0:08:560:09:00

family are here today as guests of

the US team. Four changes for

0:09:000:09:04

England from the drama Germany,

first choice goalkeeper Karen

0:09:040:09:08

Bardsley returns on goal, with

Taylor, Walsh and Kristiansen coming

0:09:080:09:12

in. Fara Williams and Siobhan

Chamberlain dropping out, Ellen

0:09:120:09:19

White keeps up this after her brace

against Germany. Four changes from

0:09:190:09:23

the USA from their 1-1 draw at

France. Carli Lloyd, the two-time

0:09:230:09:30

Player of the Year returns for a

250th cap.

Quite remarkable. What a

0:09:300:09:35

player she is. She can play in the

defensive role but she is a much

0:09:350:09:39

better when she plays that little

bit further up, linking in with Alex

0:09:390:09:45

Morgan and the other two wide

players.

A point will be enough if

0:09:450:09:52

England are to win their first

SheBelieves Cup. They finished third

0:09:520:09:56

at the previous two tournaments

which started back in 2015. The USA

0:09:560:10:03

with early pressure.

0:10:030:10:14

Holding firm, Leon. This is exactly

what the US will try to do, get the

0:10:160:10:23

ball out wide, get the pace out

there and get Deliveroo, as soon as

0:10:230:10:27

they get a yard they try to get the

delivery into the box, and they get

0:10:270:10:31

numbers forward. England have to

make sure that they are solid and

0:10:310:10:34

well organised at the back, which

they were against France and for

0:10:340:10:37

huge parts of the Germany game.

Emily Sonnett, one of the four

0:10:370:10:47

changes for this evening's game.

First start of the tournament for

0:10:470:10:50

Emily sonnet.

0:10:500:10:55

The USA throw. Taken quickly. In

four Carli Lloyd, from Morgan.

0:11:050:11:17

Wins the throw off Walsh, in

in-place Fara Williams, the

0:11:300:11:36

Manchester City youngster. England

deal with the USA threat.

0:11:360:11:44

deal with the USA threat. Taylor,

almost on the end of it. Headed up

0:11:440:11:49

and not quite away by Davidson.

Davidson, NBN, brings the ball away.

0:11:490:11:56

The 19-year-old has impressed in

this tournament against stiff

0:11:560:12:02

opposition. Struggling against Jodie

Taylor. Here is Stokes, up against

0:12:020:12:09

Emily sonnet. Two hour Manchester

City team-mate busy Kristiansen.

0:12:090:12:21

City team-mate busy Kristiansen. --

Isobel Christiansen. Kristiansen

0:12:210:12:22

rewarded for a good performance off

the bench against Germany.

Rightly

0:12:220:12:28

so, her anti-Rob Walsh came off the

bench and made a difference, they

0:12:280:12:31

kept the ball a lot better when they

were on the field. That is what Phil

0:12:310:12:35

Neville has shown throughout this

tournament, that, if you play well,

0:12:350:12:38

you will get the chance.

0:12:380:12:49

Mel Lolohea has impressed. Toni

Duggan had a quieter game against

0:12:500:12:56

Germany and paid the price. She's

playing at left-back today, the

0:12:560:12:59

former Chelsea player. Was often

used as a wingback for Chelsea.

0:12:590:13:08

Offside against Ellen White.

I was

wondering, is he going to select

0:13:080:13:18

Ellen White or Jodie Taylor, but he

manages to fit them both in, because

0:13:180:13:22

they are both quality players. That

USA backline will get no peace from

0:13:220:13:26

them because they will work for the

entire 90 minutes. They will close

0:13:260:13:30

down and Harry, they will try to win

the ball high up the field and

0:13:300:13:35

hopefully create chances for

England.

0:13:350:13:40

England. Away by Abby Dahlkemper.

Interesting dilemma for England as

0:13:410:13:48

to how they approach this game. They

were on the front foot against what

0:13:480:13:57

seemed like a poor front side, more

defensive against Germany. England

0:13:570:14:01

with the big win against France,

they came out and took the game to

0:14:010:14:04

them.

But this is the USA. They have

to go for it, go toe to toe, against

0:14:040:14:10

them. Show what they are about.

England are better when they go

0:14:100:14:16

forward, and when they attack teams,

but then still be disciplined when

0:14:160:14:20

you are defending, because you are

playing the world number one.

0:14:200:14:32

Rapino scored the winner against

Germany for the USA in the opening

0:14:330:14:37

match. Very experienced player.

0:14:370:14:43

match. Very experienced player. Up

towards Rapinoe again.

0:14:450:14:52

towards Rapinoe again. And the ball

in, looking for Morgan. Cleared away

0:14:520:14:55

by England.

0:14:550:15:05

They will know these England players

very well, from her time at Chelsea.

0:15:100:15:18

Left last month to return to

America. We'll play for North

0:15:180:15:24

Carolina Courage, who

0:15:240:15:40

Carolina Courage, who won the NWFL

Shield last year. It goes behind

0:15:400:15:42

foreign England goalkick.

That was a

pull a free kick from Rapinoe. You

0:15:420:15:48

don't expect that, with low quality.

You could see what she was trying to

0:15:480:15:52

do, Whippet Inn at the far post. She

just overheated.

0:15:520:16:00

just overheated. -- whip it in.

Carli Lloyd, undoubtedly, she's a

0:16:030:16:12

fantastic player. We have seen a lot

of her, playing for America. She

0:16:120:16:16

performs at the highest level.

Scores important goals. I don't

0:16:160:16:21

think she was really at the level I

have seen, for Manchester City.

0:16:210:16:29

have seen, for Manchester City.

That

was dealt with by Abby Dahlkemper.

0:16:300:16:33

But Ellen White getting forward in

support for Jodie Taylor. It will be

0:16:330:16:39

interesting to see how those front

two work together today.

0:16:390:16:47

Christiansen can't dispossess her

former Manchester City team-mate,

0:16:500:16:54

Lloyd.

I think that Phil Neville

will be expecting his wide players

0:16:540:17:02

to join in with the attacking play

but get back and help support

0:17:020:17:04

defensively.

A point will be enough

for England to win the SheBelieves

0:17:040:17:11

Cup. No foul, much to the

frustration of the home crowd. Few,

0:17:110:17:19

dispossess.

0:17:190:17:24

dispossess. -- Pugh, dispossessed.

0:17:260:17:32

It goes out of play before it can

reach Lawley. We have run out of

0:17:360:17:48

pages to write all the accolades for

Carli Lloyd. As I was making my

0:17:480:17:55

nose, you have to use your tiniest

writing to squeeze it all in. The

0:17:550:17:58

two-time world Player of the Year,

scored a hat-trick in the World Cup

0:17:580:18:02

final in 2015 as the USA became the

reigning champions with two winners

0:18:020:18:08

in Olympic finals, as well. You have

to say that over her career, she has

0:18:080:18:13

done it.

I looked down at my notes

follow, and it is really small! She

0:18:130:18:22

is an unbelievable player. She has

won so much. Let's hope she has

0:18:220:18:28

acquired one tonight! -- a quiet

one.

0:18:280:18:34

The injured Jordan Nobbs has not

travelled to the toilet.

Another

0:18:450:18:50

disappointing delivery from a very

experienced player in Rapinoe.

In

0:18:500:18:56

the last couple of games her

delivery has been spot on, so she

0:18:560:19:00

will be really disappointed with her

start. But you can see that is what

0:19:000:19:04

she wants to do, to gain a yard, and

whipped the ball in.

0:19:040:19:18

Ellen White will chase it, but can't

keep it in. That matchup between

0:19:230:19:26

Ellen White and Emily sonnet, making

a first start of the tournament, the

0:19:260:19:33

24-year-old, looks like a good

giving them some joy down that

0:19:330:19:36

left-hand side.

England will be

looking to face off every time they

0:19:360:19:42

get on the ball. Lucy Bronze was

trying to face. The American

0:19:420:19:47

defenders like to shift bodies

across, so that is where the will

0:19:470:19:50

be. The

0:19:500:19:57

be. The ball from Dunne and Taylor

can't make the most of it.

The two

0:19:570:20:06

19-year-olds, Mallory Pugh, has been

very impressive, has started every

0:20:060:20:12

game. Morgan can't control that.

Again, behind foreign goalkick.

0:20:120:20:20

Morgan, playing in her home

0:20:200:20:26

Morgan, playing in her home club

stadium, she plays for Orlando Pride

0:20:260:20:31

in BMW SL, and there was a huge

cheer when her name was read out.

0:20:310:20:36

That was a cool touch from Morgan.

But she offers that. She will

0:20:360:20:41

stretch the play, run the channels,

she worked really hard for the team.

0:20:410:20:48

I'm not sure how she has acquired

her black eye. We didn't see her

0:20:480:20:53

taking a knock in that draw with

France.

0:20:530:20:59

France. France so much improved

against the USA from the debacle

0:21:010:21:04

against England in their opener.

They got a deserved 1-1 draw.

You

0:21:040:21:11

have to give England credit for how

they performed against France, but

0:21:110:21:15

it was probably the worst French

theme that I have seen from any time

0:21:150:21:18

that I have watched them or played

against them.

They made eight

0:21:180:21:25

changes for the USA game, and it

paid off. They got a roasting from

0:21:250:21:30

their coach, as well. Emily sonnet

looks nervous, the right back.

Yes,

0:21:300:21:38

very nervy. But she did well to get

herself back. Jodie Taylor took a

0:21:380:21:45

couple too many touches. She's

looking for a pass.

0:21:450:21:52

looking for a pass.

She has never

been in a major tournament squad,

0:21:530:21:56

Emily sonnet. She was on stand-by

for the Olympics. She does play for

0:21:560:22:05

the champions, Portland Thorns, but

this is a tough test for her.

0:22:050:22:14

this is a tough test for her. The

flick of Stokes.

0:22:140:22:23

flick of Stokes. The USA, with such

pedigree in the women's game, in

0:22:230:22:27

terms of major tournament titles,

certainly the most successful team

0:22:270:22:30

in women's football. Three time

World Cup winners, four time Olympic

0:22:300:22:36

gold medallists. In fact, when they

lost in the quarterfinals of the

0:22:360:22:42

2016 Olympics to Sweden on

penalties, that was the first time

0:22:420:22:47

they had failed to make the

semifinals of a major tournament.

0:22:470:22:54

England know what they are up

against. Rapinoe. To Morgan instead.

0:22:540:23:11

Walsh, marshalling well. Nice

build-up from the USA, with Rapinoe.

0:23:110:23:18

McManus prevents the corner.

0:23:180:23:29

That was rather aimless and straight

into the arms of Karen Bardsley,

0:23:300:23:34

back in the side today. Siobhan

Chamberlain given her chance against

0:23:340:23:39

Germany but it was a shocking

performance for the England number

0:23:390:23:43

two, winning her 50th cap.

She will

be disappointed with her

0:23:430:23:48

performance. She has done well for

Liverpool. It is her 50th cap.

0:23:480:23:53

Unfortunately for the goalkeeper,

when you make a mistake it tends to

0:23:530:23:57

lead to go and that is what we

about. It was a combination of

0:23:570:24:02

errors. I know Siobhan, and she is a

perfectionist, so she will be really

0:24:020:24:06

disappointed with that. But she is

really strong. She will move on, and

0:24:060:24:12

she will be looking at the next game

now.

Davidson.

0:24:120:24:19

now.

Davidson. England having to

deal with the threat inside their

0:24:260:24:31

own penalty area. The USA using the

flanks well. England have to stay

0:24:310:24:35

switched on at the back with

McManus, and Millie Bright. The USA

0:24:350:24:43

without some big players including

their veteran

0:24:430:24:57

their veteran defender,... Bardsley,

diving on the loose ball.

I've been

0:24:570:25:04

impressed with the positioning from

McManus. She has just been in the

0:25:040:25:08

right place and able to clear the

ball for England. It is tough when

0:25:080:25:13

it is a new centre-half pairing. And

yes, they had the Germany game to

0:25:130:25:17

get used to each other but it takes

a number of games to try and build

0:25:170:25:23

that relationship, that

understanding.

0:25:230:25:28

understanding.

England throw-in.

McManus making her debut against

0:25:280:25:34

France, first start against Germany,

early in the side after her

0:25:340:25:43

Manchester City team-mate withdrew

through injury, in a late call off

0:25:430:25:46

to the squad. Pugh wins the throw.

Three goals in three games for

0:25:460:26:00

Mallory Pugh. Scored twice in the

5-1 win over Denmark and any last

0:26:000:26:05

match against France as well. What

was impressive was that she missed a

0:26:050:26:10

very good chance just before scoring

against France. Clearly didn't let

0:26:100:26:13

it get to her. And as a 19-year-old,

that is what you want to see, that

0:26:130:26:21

cool head and ability to recover

from mistakes. England win a free

0:26:210:26:25

kick.

Something Phil Neville has

spoken about, saying he wants the

0:26:250:26:32

players to trust him more in regard

to not being afraid if they make

0:26:320:26:37

mistakes, as long as they are trying

to do the right thing. That is going

0:26:370:26:41

to take time. It's a new manager. It

is a new boys coming into the side.

0:26:410:26:50

-- a new voice. You what the players

to express themselves.

0:26:500:26:59

to express themselves. And to do

that in the right areas of the

0:26:590:27:01

field.

0:27:010:27:11

field.

You can hear him on the

touchline as well. He is a very

0:27:110:27:14

engaged manager. You staking the

squad to this inland tomorrow. Or he

0:27:140:27:23

is allowing them a few hours there.

He says he will be relaxing by the

0:27:230:27:27

pool at! Do you rate that as a

post-tournament treat? Sounds great.

0:27:270:27:32

I think they have to win, though!

That is what I would say.

0:27:320:27:41

Plenty of support in Orlando for the

home crowd. They had lots of fans,

0:27:490:27:56

over 25,000 that the second match

for the draw with France in New

0:27:560:28:01

Jersey. 14,000 for the opener

against Germany in Ohio. But the

0:28:010:28:10

weather for that and for the England

game against France was truly

0:28:100:28:14

shocking.

0:28:140:28:19

shocking. Throw-in for the USA. The

world champions on top, Sue Smith.

0:28:190:28:26

They are, but not creating anything

or doing anything particularly well

0:28:260:28:30

with their possession. England have

remained organised, and making it

0:28:300:28:36

difficult for them to create things.

Apologies for those technical

0:28:360:28:43

difficulties. Rapinoe.

0:28:430:28:54

difficulties. Rapinoe. It comes off

Lucy Bond. USA throw.

0:28:540:29:01

Dunne takes it. Walsh can't prevent

the corner. And the USA will have an

0:29:120:29:20

opportunity to quit this in with

Megan Rapinoe.

0:29:200:29:27

Megan Rapinoe. -- to whip this in.

The Queen of assists.

0:29:300:29:39

The Queen of assists. She takes it

short, to Davidson. She has Taylor

0:29:390:29:43

for company. Rapinoe dispossessed

and the US have wasted that

0:29:430:29:50

opportunity. Not sure why you would

play at short when you have a play

0:29:500:29:58

of Megan Rapinoe's quality on the

ball, but credit to England.

They

0:29:580:30:03

were alert to the possibility. I was

going to say why hadn't England sent

0:30:030:30:08

out two players will be short corner

but great work from Jodie Taylor,

0:30:080:30:12

who anticipated where the ball was

going to go, and won the ball back

0:30:120:30:15

for England.

0:30:150:30:22

Lucy Bronze's throw with Millie

Bright. Phil Neville has been

0:30:250:30:28

teasing, saying she is England's

joint top scorer along with white

0:30:280:30:32

white. Millie Bright's goals have

been own goals.

I am sure she will

0:30:320:30:36

give some back. She wouldn't have

just taken that.

0:30:360:30:41

They have been having a go at his

clothes saying he wears dad clothes.

0:30:410:30:46

That probably come from Millie

Bright to be honest or Jill Scott,

0:30:460:30:49

one of them. That is what it is

about, isn't it.

0:30:490:30:58

Wary of asking you... Looking down

at my attire, you might take a dig.

0:30:580:31:04

England throw.

Kirby. Very quiet so far.

0:31:040:31:14

Dahlkemper. Stabs it away, safety

first from the USA with white white

0:31:140:31:19

lurking. England corner. .

That is what you can't want. You

0:31:190:31:23

want Fran Kirby in and round the

box. She has such quick feet. When

0:31:230:31:27

you are running at pace, any touch,

she can win her team. She looks

0:31:270:31:32

lively. Looks like something is

going to happen when she gets on the

0:31:320:31:36

ball.

The Chelsea player to play the

0:31:360:31:44

corner. Plays it short.

And England's turn to waste an

0:31:440:31:51

opportunity.

0:31:510:32:01

Ellen White, wide, Dahlkemper.

0:32:050:32:15

Lloyd with the pass to Rapinoe,

easily covered by Lucy Bronze.

0:32:150:32:23

Lawley.

Bronze making the run up against

0:32:240:32:30

Davidson. This will be a test for

the youngster. Bronze keeps it in.

0:32:300:32:35

Get there ahead of Dunn.

In the end the decision goes the way

0:32:350:32:40

of the USA. First time we have seen

Lucy Bronze get forward down that

0:32:400:32:44

right-hand side.

It has been more on

the left-hand side, Demi Stokes

0:32:440:32:47

getting forward. I don't know if

they were saying that was a foul.

0:32:470:32:52

Did the ball go out of play? I don't

think it did.

0:32:520:32:59

Plays football for lion, the --

Lyon, the former Manchester City

0:33:040:33:08

player. Three goals in her 19

appearances since moving. When you

0:33:080:33:13

can be that regular in a double

treble winning team, back-to-back

0:33:130:33:19

trebles for Lyon, that shows just

what a good player Lucy Bronze is.

0:33:190:33:24

Squeeze through to Ellen White. USA

can counter. Here is Rapinoe.

0:33:240:33:33

Horan continuing her run. Think

about a shot. Back to Rapinoe who

0:33:360:33:40

thinks about a shot.

First effort in anger, on the

0:33:400:33:46

England goal from Megan Rapinoe.

A

bit too easy there, England just

0:33:460:33:51

allowing US where just to play the

ball round, too much time. Megan

0:33:510:33:56

Rapinoe took a touch. Was able to

pick a spot, and again probably

0:33:560:34:01

should have done better.

The quality she has got. I think

0:34:010:34:08

that is what is lacking, the final

ball from both sides.

Gill Ellis

0:34:080:34:15

watching on. An English woman, born

in Portsmouth. The coach of the USA

0:34:150:34:23

team moved to America as a teenager,

which is where she started playing

0:34:230:34:26

football.

Here is Dunn. Horan. Lovely skill

0:34:260:34:36

from Rapinoe. She is still going.

Collected by Alex Morgan.

0:34:360:34:45

That is the ball across. Vital

header by Demi Stokes.

0:34:450:34:49

White. Helps it on.

USA still coming forward. Dahlkemper

0:34:490:34:57

goes down. No free kick, a USA

throw.

0:34:570:35:06

Sonnett. Pugh. Up against Stokes

again. Ball behind.

0:35:080:35:19

The story of the youngsters really

Mallory Pugh, and Fran Kirby who

0:35:190:35:25

have arguably been the players of

the tournament as we watch that

0:35:250:35:31

lovely backheel from Megan Rapinoe.

You can see what Fran Kirby is

0:35:310:35:35

trying to do, she is trying to get

in and round Jodie Taylor at every

0:35:350:35:39

opportunity. She is trying to link

the midfield to the attack. America

0:35:390:35:42

are just stopping her from getting

on the ball.

0:35:420:35:49

Your player of the tournament so

far, Vlad Chiriches?

Ellen White I

0:35:490:35:52

guess is. Kirby is coming forward

now. She is met by a wall of red

0:35:520:35:57

shirts. She has been excellent.

Ellen White was outstand manager the

0:35:570:36:01

last game, her work right and

finishing, but in the first game

0:36:010:36:06

Jodie Taylor was excellent. Nikita

Parris.

There is Pugh looking for

0:36:060:36:13

Rapinoe.

Horan kicks it in.

0:36:130:36:21

Lloyds TSB, back to Pugh -- Carli

Lloyd.

0:36:210:36:29

Another one, Demi Stokes.

So solid

for England and Manchester City,

0:36:290:36:37

part of that Manchester City side

that won the title in 2016, as the

0:36:370:36:43

invincibles, the season unbeaten.

She equalised against Birmingham in

0:36:430:36:46

the final game of that season to

ensure they did win the title with

0:36:460:36:53

that achievement.

Jodie Taylor, just looking a little

0:36:530:36:57

isolated.

Yes, and that is what I

was saying, Vlad Chiriches is trying

0:36:570:37:03

to get in and round her. Ellen White

is doing so much work, we have not

0:37:030:37:08

seen much of Mel Lawley, againing do

a lot defensively and off the ball.

0:37:080:37:12

We want to see them on the ball a

little bit more. You can see when

0:37:120:37:16

they are press, there is a front

four for England. If they can go as

0:37:160:37:20

that unit and win the ball high up,

I would back them to score against

0:37:200:37:26

this American back-line.

As it stands this score line would

0:37:260:37:33

be enough, England need just a point

to win the SheBelieves Cup for the

0:37:330:37:37

first time.

It will be either England or the USA

0:37:370:37:43

who lift the trophy at the end of

this match. Victory for the USA will

0:37:430:37:47

seal it.

France will finish third, Germany

0:37:470:37:51

will finish bottom.

Lloyd looking for Pugh and it might

0:37:510:37:57

fall to Morgan. Bardsley takes it

away from her, England have two

0:37:570:38:02

players down. Lucy Bronze, kicks the

ball out of play. McManus and

0:38:020:38:08

Stokes. But there was confusion in

the England back-line there, the

0:38:080:38:12

ball forward. Initially looked like

it wouldn't be a threat but Mallory

0:38:120:38:16

Pugh almost got in. . There

0:38:160:38:23

Pugh almost got in. . There was Demi

Stokes and Abbie McManus.man Manus

0:38:230:38:28

did the right thing though. She

played the ball back to Karen

0:38:280:38:35

Bardsley and they managed to get it

clear.

0:38:350:38:37

-- McManus. Hopefully both will be

OK.

0:38:370:38:41

Just a small collision.

You can see Millie Bright came out

0:38:410:38:46

initially to press the ball.

Here is that collision.

I think it

0:38:460:38:57

wasman Manus's stud caught her on

the way through.

Clattered into by

0:38:570:39:02

Mallory Pugh who is certainly not

shy of putting herself about.

0:39:020:39:07

The record is the youngest US player

to score at the Olympics and she

0:39:070:39:12

netted against Colombia, in 2016.

0:39:120:39:22

That would have been controversial

if USA scored from that.

You can see

0:39:230:39:29

she looks to beat Stokes.

So full of confidence. Real good

0:39:290:39:36

player.

The fearlessness of youth.

Yes.

0:39:360:39:41

Did you find that as a teenager,

making your way in the game, that

0:39:410:39:45

that is just the case, you don't

think about things so much. ?

Yes, I

0:39:450:39:50

think so, I made my debut at 17 and

it was case of, I just wanted to

0:39:500:39:54

play football. I didn't think I was

playing for my country. It is as you

0:39:540:39:59

get older you start overthinking

things.

Here come the USA with

0:39:590:40:03

Rapinoe who has been at the start of

so many driving runs forward.

0:40:030:40:08

Forward. Horan. Bluebird

dispossesses her. England are hemmed

0:40:080:40:14

in. Stokes and McManus are OK.

Davidson wins it from Taylor. Bronze

0:40:140:40:24

in, Lawley coming forward. Just

delayed the pass. Frustration from

0:40:240:40:29

White and Kirby b as you say, sue

Smith, they went forward as one,

0:40:290:40:36

just a bit too much of a delay.

I

think it was an extra touch, the

0:40:360:40:41

players made the run, if you are

going to give it to Jodie Taylor,

0:40:410:40:44

maybe do it one touch earlier, if

not there was a big switch on the

0:40:440:40:50

far side with Kirby getting forward.

England are getting players forward.

0:40:500:40:55

They are committing players.

Certainly don't think they are going

0:40:550:40:58

for the draw.

That is a risky strategy.

Yeah.

A

0:40:580:41:05

source of huge frustration to the

average football fan as well. A

0:41:050:41:08

point would be enough to win the

tournament.

0:41:080:41:14

Apologies again for the technical

difficulties.

0:41:140:41:18

We will soldier on, hopefully you

are still with us.

0:41:180:41:28

Sonnett seems to have settled into

this game.

0:41:280:41:36

this game. Dahlkemper.

Looking for Morgan. Bronze will

0:41:360:41:43

leave it for a former Manchester

City team-mate Karen Bardsley. Just

0:41:430:41:51

over half an hour gone. Loose ball

from Bardsley. McManus just about

0:41:510:41:57

gets there, but that is sloppy from

England. I was going to ask you, Sue

0:41:570:42:02

Smith how Phil Neville will assess

this half so far. He won't be happy

0:42:020:42:06

with that.

They did well to get

themselves out of trouble, but,

0:42:060:42:09

there is no need to put themselves

in danger like that.

0:42:090:42:13

As you can see, I think he is

saying, that ball shouldn't have

0:42:130:42:16

been in there. Sometimes, it is

great to play nice football, but

0:42:160:42:20

sometimes it has to go. That was one

of those situations.

0:42:200:42:27

He has talked so much about bravery.

Winning mentality. England go to the

0:42:270:42:35

next level, believes they are on the

verge of something special.

0:42:350:42:39

And I suppose when you are a player

who has won as much as he has in the

0:42:390:42:44

game, despite his lack of managerial

experience which was talked about

0:42:440:42:48

before during and after his

appointment. Up until they beat

0:42:480:42:53

France 4-1. When you know how the

win as a player, that has to be an

0:42:530:42:58

advantage, when you try and instil

that into a team that like England

0:42:580:43:02

just need to take that final step,

become winner, like Germany, like

0:43:020:43:07

the USA.

Straight when when somebody

who has achieved that, you do

0:43:070:43:14

believe and you do want to listen to

what they have to say.

0:43:140:43:19

Lawley flags offside.

He has some handy connections as

0:43:190:43:26

well. David Beckham giving the

prematch team talk ahead of the

0:43:260:43:30

Germany game which was a surprise

for the team, organised by Phil

0:43:300:43:34

Neville.

I think he spoke about what

it feels like to play for his

0:43:340:43:38

country, and again, that is going to

have an impact, that is going to

0:43:380:43:42

help inspire you when you are going

out to the field. Seen so many

0:43:420:43:48

selfies the girls with David Beckham

after the game. I don't blame them!

0:43:480:43:52

Would qu have taken one?

100%. I

would have been star struck.

0:43:520:43:58

He may well have been star struck

back, Sue Smith, 93 England caps.

0:43:580:44:05

England free kick.

Just getting a bit scrappy but

0:44:050:44:10

England won't mind that as we

approach half-time. Still 0-0.

0:44:100:44:20

McManus.

Walsh.

0:44:260:44:31

Dispossessed.

Here comes Horan.

0:44:310:44:40

Tries the early ball again, Rapinoe

closes it down, Bronze will allow

0:44:400:44:46

Bardsley, nervy moments in defence

for England.

They have to be careful

0:44:460:44:51

that I don't overplay things.

Keira Walsh is getting caught in

0:44:510:44:56

possession in the middle of the

park. Lucy Bronze. Getting caught

0:44:560:45:00

out wide.

Move the ball quickly, one and two

0:45:000:45:05

touch like they did against France.

Christensen, good ball. Finds

0:45:050:45:09

Lawley.

Looking for Taylor, away by

0:45:090:45:15

Davidson, hit Lawley on the way back

out.

0:45:150:45:20

Against Dunn.

Still going. Kirby is an option.

0:45:200:45:27

Back in Stead to Lucy Bronze. Here

is Walsh. Kirby making the run.

0:45:270:45:33

Walsh delays. Bronze. Lawley,

England try to work patiently

0:45:330:45:39

towards that US penalty area. Walsh

swings it in looking for Ellen

0:45:390:45:44

White. Clear hand ball. Surely.

US have the ball any way.

0:45:440:45:51

White may have hurt herself in that

attempt.

0:45:510:45:55

Got say what a delivery from Keira

Walsh. That is a definite hand ball

0:45:550:46:02

from Ellen White. I don't know if

she said she was fouled. What a

0:46:020:46:06

spot. Ellen White knew she couldn't

get near the ball. I think she tried

0:46:060:46:11

to get something on to it.

Lucky not to get booked there.

0:46:110:46:15

Absolutely.

One of those instinctive striker

0:46:150:46:20

actions Sue Smith?

I'm not sure

about that. I think she was falling,

0:46:200:46:26

I think. I'm not sure why she put

her arm out.

She has got away with

0:46:260:46:31

it. The USA did come away with

possession.

0:46:310:46:36

Here is Davidson.

That shows with

one quality ball at the far post,

0:46:360:46:42

she had the space in the end.

She

was closed down.

0:46:420:46:49

Horan. McManus.

Lawley.

0:46:490:47:01

England still yet to win a major

tournament. This doesn't count as

0:47:060:47:10

one, it is a friendly tournament in

inverted commas, but an incredibly

0:47:100:47:18

prestigious one. All it means to win

the tournament outright for the

0:47:180:47:23

first time against the calibre of

opposition they are facing.

0:47:230:47:27

We will anaesthesia no a moment.

Jodie Taylor could be in here,

0:47:270:47:30

Davidson does well as does Naeher.

USA clear the danger, but that one

0:47:300:47:35

ball Sue Smith.

That is the ball.

They have players who can play that

0:47:350:47:39

quality ball. They have players in

advance that will play off the

0:47:390:47:43

shoulder, play in between the centre

halves and they have the pace to get

0:47:430:47:47

on the end of it. You think if they

can find the right I suppose it is

0:47:470:47:55

like quality of pass, England will

be in.

0:47:550:48:04

be in.

USA try the same the other

end. Runs away from Alex Morgan.

0:48:040:48:11

Bardsley cleared away from Horan.

Lloyd is having a quiet game. Can't

0:48:110:48:15

bring it down. Christensen.

Stokes.

0:48:150:48:22

White, again trying to set Jodie

Taylor away. Daid son just gets

0:48:220:48:26

enough on it.

-- Davidson. Identical moves from

0:48:260:48:31

either side coming forward. Here is

Ellen White. Good strength.

0:48:310:48:34

Stokes.

Walsh.

0:48:340:48:41

And Kirby, just can't reach it.

0-0 as things stand. England will

0:48:410:48:51

win the SheBelieves Cup. What would

it mean for the national team?

I

0:48:510:48:55

think it is a real confidence boost.

The fact that England get invited to

0:48:550:49:00

these tournaments now show how far

they have come and they are now

0:49:000:49:05

compoting, challenging against the

top teams in the world. --

0:49:050:49:07

competing. That gives you a boost

when you go into a World Cup,

0:49:070:49:11

because you know you have beaten

those team, performed against them.

0:49:110:49:16

It would be massive for the team,

for Phil Neville and it is the first

0:49:160:49:20

thing that he will have won. The

first tournament he has gone to and

0:49:200:49:24

won it, so, yes, there be a few

celebrations.

We have just put the

0:49:240:49:30

stamp of his authority on this side

as well.

0:49:300:49:34

There were questions raised about

his experience in the women's game.

0:49:340:49:38

The selection process. None of that

will matter if he can win this

0:49:380:49:45

tournament and proved himself in his

early games, he needs to go on from

0:49:450:49:49

there. It would be the perfect

start.

0:49:490:49:58

Bright will chase this back to

Bardsley. Safety first. USA throw.

0:49:580:50:04

Millie Bright the only England

player to start every game at Euro

0:50:040:50:08

2017. She has really broken into the

national side. In the past couple of

0:50:080:50:14

years. Dahlkemper. Ball in. Behind

by Horan.

0:50:140:50:27

Scored the winner for Portland

Thorns as they won the Championship

0:50:280:50:31

at this very stadium, so fond

memories for Lindsey Horan.

0:50:310:50:37

Lucy Bronze doing enough to put her

off.

0:50:370:50:44

USA finished last at the SheBelieves

Cup last year.

0:50:560:51:01

Won it in the inaugural edition back

in 2016. Bright. Gets the ball away,

0:51:010:51:09

USA throw.

Morgan a danger. Her 138th cap this

0:51:090:51:22

evening, as Horan takes it down and

Lucy Bronze gets it away for

0:51:220:51:27

England, again more danger for the

USA. England have given it away.

0:51:270:51:32

Horse than back up to her feet in

the penalty area.

0:51:320:51:38

-- Horan. Dunn. Rapinoe. Looking for

Horan again. Rapinoe takes matters

0:51:380:51:44

into her own hands. Just kept out by

Bardsley and stabbed away by

0:51:440:51:48

Christensen. The USA still come.

Sonnett behind for a corner off

0:51:480:51:54

Ellen White.

Harum-scarum moments for the England

0:51:540:52:04

team. Karen Bardsley did well to get

down and palm the ball away and away

0:52:040:52:10

from the USA players that were

coming in.

0:52:100:52:15

I think Lucy Bronze had a good

challenge. Ellen White got back.

0:52:150:52:20

Scary times though.? The World

Champions cranking up the pressure

0:52:200:52:25

before half-time. Rapinoe's corner

inadvertently headed away from goal

0:52:250:52:30

by Carli Lloyd.

No England player up there though.

0:52:300:52:35

Dahlkemper. They will be happy to

have survived that little spell. The

0:52:350:52:41

USA, they are not relenting. Pugh's

ball away.

0:52:410:52:49

White to Kirby. Turning into

Rapinoe. Stokes. Rapinoe full of

0:52:490:52:54

running.

Pressuring, Bright, big claim from

0:52:540:53:02

Rapinoe for a penalty. Not given.

Still the USA come forward. Long.

0:53:020:53:07

Pugh. The home fans not happy with

that decision. It was risky from

0:53:070:53:12

Millie Bright. Wait and see a

replay.

0:53:120:53:15

Dahlkemper.

Intercepted by Bronze. Christensen.

0:53:150:53:24

Taylor. Davidson clears. Rapinoe,

again, she is every where.

0:53:240:53:30

USA attacker.

Here is Pugh. Up against Stokes.

0:53:300:53:35

Lloyd making the run ahead of her.

Pugh still going. Still Mallory Pugh

0:53:350:53:43

and still, and just wide. The show

of brilliance from the teenager and

0:53:430:53:49

England are hanging on.

They really.

In the last five minutes, USA have

0:53:490:53:54

been excellent. This is such good

play. She can go outside, she can go

0:53:540:53:58

inside. She has such quick feet. At

the end of it I thought that was

0:53:580:54:03

just in. I thought it was going to

sneak in. That was unlucky for her.

0:54:030:54:09

Yes, she is both footed. Got a great

engine. And just that yard of pace,

0:54:090:54:16

it gets her away from the defender.

Takes the nick off the post as well.

0:54:160:54:28

Encouragement from all the home

fans.

0:54:280:54:31

One minute of added time, England

will be happy to hear the half-time

0:54:310:54:35

whistle.

0:54:350:54:37

Phil Neville looked as if he might

take that himself for a moment.

0:54:450:54:53

Largely it has been a positive half

from England.

0:54:550:55:01

They will be concerned about the

defensive lapses. They haven't been

0:55:010:55:07

made to pay.

That is more like what we have seen

0:55:070:55:15

from Mallory Pugh in this

tournament. Megan Rapinoe,

0:55:150:55:18

32-year-old, you wouldn't know it.

Not at all. Danger from both sides.

0:55:180:55:26

Dahlkemper with a free kick. And

that will be... Half-time. 0-0

0:55:300:55:39

between the US. A and England.

And they have Karen Bardsley to

0:55:390:55:44

thank for it in the end.

Gill Ellis will be pleased with how

0:55:440:55:50

her side finished the half.

Phil Neville with a bit of work to

0:55:500:55:57

do at half-time after what was

initially a promising half an hour

0:55:570:56:00

or so.

I think he will be relatively

happy apart from possibly the last

0:56:000:56:07

five, six, seven minutes where the

United States have started to get on

0:56:070:56:11

top and show their quality. He needs

to make sure defensively they are

0:56:110:56:15

organised in the second half and

when they go forward they need more

0:56:150:56:19

quality.

A point will do it for the

second half.

0:56:190:56:23

Stick or twist?

I would think you

have to go for it. I don't think you

0:56:230:56:27

can hold on for a point. It is toory

Kirby, when you lock -- to risky.

0:56:270:56:33

They have a lot of players who can

change the game if he needs do that,

0:56:330:56:37

but you would see the quality of

America coming into it in the final

0:56:370:56:41

few moments of the half, so, they

can't do that, they immediate to

0:56:410:56:45

make sure they go for the three.s if

you like.

Half-time. USA women nil,

0:56:450:56:51

England women nil.

Welcome back to Orlando, all square

0:56:510:56:59

at the break, if things stay as they

are England will be crowned

0:56:590:57:05

SheBelieves champions.

0:57:050:57:05

are England will be crowned

SheBelieves champions. That was a

0:57:050:57:09

first half of few opportunities.

Tfrnts

It was. Defensively England

0:57:090:57:12

have been well-organised. I have to

say I have been so impressed with

0:57:120:57:17

Abbie McManus. She started two games

against Germany and US and she has

0:57:170:57:23

been outstanding she has been

blocking, calm in possession, you

0:57:230:57:26

mention there has been few chance,

we had white it who with maybe a

0:57:260:57:30

wandering hand.

I thought that was

England sparking into life.

Pugh,

0:57:300:57:37

Mallory Pugh, she nearly took the

lead for the US. That is worrying

0:57:370:57:41

that, the US did start, finish the

half more strongly. We need to get

0:57:410:57:46

the ball out to Mel Lawley, when we,

she was hugging that touchline and

0:57:460:57:50

they finally got her in the game,

because she wasn't involved for long

0:57:500:57:54

stretches we caused them problems,

so that is what we heed to do keep

0:57:540:57:58

the ball, make it stick up front.

Get on the ball in midfield, keep

0:57:580:58:02

possession a bit better and keep

doing what we're doing, fantastic

0:58:020:58:06

save by Karen Bardsley towards the

end of that half.

We are back with

0:58:060:58:09

you in a moment. This tournament is

an historic one for one woman. Casey

0:58:090:58:16

Stoney played for Arsenal. Chelsea.

Played for England over 100 times

0:58:160:58:22

and captained England, but it has

always changed now.

0:58:220:58:26

You are sat in front of me for the

first time wearing coaching kit. Has

0:58:260:58:31

it sunk in you have retired?

Yes,

definitely. I am 36 soon. I have had

0:58:310:58:37

a lot of injuries in the last year.

I missed the entire Euros and I

0:58:370:58:41

worked so hard to get there. I

didn't think I had another

0:58:410:58:47

tournament in me, most importantly,

it was the right reason at the right

0:58:470:58:49

time. You know, this opportunity

came up, and, you can't turn it

0:58:490:58:54

down. You know. Phil Neville spoke

to me, asked me if I would be

0:58:540:58:58

interested, and would I come and

work alongside him, and you know,

0:58:580:59:03

for me that was incredible. Football

has been my one constant through my

0:59:030:59:06

entire life and to think about

stepping away, with nothing in front

0:59:060:59:10

of me, petrified me. You know, so

this was really natural, and when I

0:59:100:59:17

was coaching with Mo, I didn't once

think I wish I was still playing. I

0:59:170:59:22

am excited. Excited. That told me I

was ready to say goodbye to my

0:59:220:59:27

playing days.

What changes have you

soon within the England squad?

He is

0:59:270:59:32

big on standards, you know, you keep

things tidy, you leave places as you

0:59:320:59:36

found them. You make sure you are

early, not on time. The little

0:59:360:59:40

thing, never be too big to do the

little thing, that is important,

0:59:400:59:45

especially international football we

get things right.

0:59:450:59:48

He is very driven, very focussed. He

is keen on players driving dressing

0:59:480:59:53

room, driving the environment.

Is

that new era for the Lionesses?

I

0:59:530:59:58

feel like it is. We have been to two

semifinals.

England have completed

0:59:581:00:03

their most successful World Cup

finals ever, with a third place

1:00:031:00:08

finish. A Bronze medal and a

watershed moment.

Success is going

1:00:081:00:13

further than that, so it is a new

era, we are looking forward, we are

1:00:131:00:20

massively about qualifying for the

World Cup. Doing well in this

1:00:201:00:23

tournament. See what next summer can

hold.

1:00:231:00:34

The is from third to first in the

world.

What to happen?

I think with

1:00:391:00:52

his tactical knowledge and what he's

going to implement on the pitch,

1:00:521:00:58

that is the difference. We are not

far away. We have not been far away.

1:00:581:01:05

It is how much further they are

willing to go, how much more we can

1:01:051:01:10

get into the girls, because this is

the hardest bit now.

Casey Stoner

1:01:101:01:20

loving life on the coach bench.

Barros Camel, what difference do you

1:01:201:01:27

think she has made their? She is a

wonderful bridge between the players

1:01:271:01:34

and the coach.

She is one of six

players we have got on the player to

1:01:341:01:37

coach programme.

Who else? Rachel

Yankey, Jill Scott, Jo Potter. You

1:01:371:01:46

caught me in there, but it is the

players I know who want to go into

1:01:461:01:50

coaching and we want to make sure

that between now and when they

1:01:501:01:55

finished playing, they have their

licenses and they have experience

1:01:551:01:58

with England teams. Casey is on an

apprenticeship for a few months with

1:01:581:02:02

the England team but she has been a

marvellous bridge and terrific

1:02:021:02:05

support for Phil.

And she looks like

she has done the transition quite

1:02:051:02:11

easily. How important to Phil

Neville is it our player like

1:02:111:02:16

alongside him?

She's had an

incredible career. She has been

1:02:161:02:19

there and done that. She maybe knows

more about the history and context

1:02:191:02:23

of some of the teams and players

they are coming up against. She's

1:02:231:02:27

always been a passionate student of

the game as well as a great player.

1:02:271:02:32

You can see from looking at the

dugout, he goes and speaks before

1:02:321:02:37

making changes, he involves her in

the process and already I think that

1:02:371:02:40

partnership is working very well.

You are also responsible for the

1:02:401:02:48

appointment of Phil Neville, do you

feel vindicated in that appointment?

1:02:481:02:51

Jake Emmitt and for some stick when

it first happened.

I sure did. We

1:02:511:02:58

are at the early stages of this.

Fill himself knows he has a long

1:02:581:03:03

journey to go on. But he has been

tremendous and another's

1:03:031:03:07

relationship with the players. His

positivity about the way that he

1:03:071:03:11

wants to play. I am really pleased

for him. Whether we win or not the

1:03:111:03:18

we are still at the beginning of the

journey and the journey is to win

1:03:181:03:21

the World Cup in 2019, and he is

really determined. He's learned a

1:03:211:03:26

lot about his players over these

three matches and he will use that

1:03:261:03:31

knowledge to help build the team for

2091.

Baroness Campbell, Jen, thank

1:03:311:03:37

you for joining us. We are going to

head back to England to meet a young

1:03:371:03:43

girl who recently signed for

Liverpool ladies. Her dad is Chris

1:03:431:03:50

Kirkland, and Sue Smith has been

along to meet both of them.

1:03:501:03:56

When did you first start playing

football?

Are just watching my dad,

1:04:051:04:10

and then I just started, like... I

wasn't really that good.

1:04:101:04:18

wasn't really that good.

When your

dad is playing you are not really

1:04:191:04:20

interested.

I was always a dancer.

1:04:201:04:27

interested.

I was always a dancer. I

didn't think that I like football.

1:04:291:04:36

didn't think that I like football. I

preferred dance. Then I kind of went

1:04:381:04:40

more to football.

Your dad has put a

bet on you to play for England

1:04:401:04:45

before you. Have you tried to do

something similar?

I tried to put a

1:04:451:04:52

bet on photo to play for either

England or Scotland, I tried to get

1:04:521:04:56

a bet on it but they didn't get back

to us, and now she has signed a

1:04:561:05:00

mother is probably not much point. I

will probably still try and do it.

1:05:001:05:05

My dad put a bit like that on when I

was 13, and got 100 to one. If I had

1:05:051:05:10

gone into the bookies with them we

would have got about 1 million to

1:05:101:05:13

one! Because I was, if you saw me

when I was 13, they would be like,

1:05:131:05:20

really?!

What made you want to be a

goalkeeper?

I found out that I was,

1:05:201:05:34

like, accident prone. I am just

throwing myself about everywhere. It

1:05:341:05:39

was, like, I forget how, like, big I

was because I was, like, really

1:05:391:05:44

tall. I would, like, walk into

walls. Instead of running down the

1:05:441:05:50

stairs I would fall down the stairs.

Then I went in goal, I think it was

1:05:501:05:55

in school, and we had a concrete

playground. At 1.I died on the floor

1:05:551:06:01

forgetting that I was on concrete

and from that point on I was, like,

1:06:011:06:05

I want to be a goalkeeper because I

was just, like, fearless at throwing

1:06:051:06:10

myself on the floor and I quite

enjoyed it, I don't know why!

Do

1:06:101:06:16

your friends say things like, your

dad is Chris Kirkland?

When I went

1:06:161:06:21

into the juniors I realise why

everyone was coming up and saying,

1:06:211:06:25

my dad is Chris Kirkland and I was

like, yet, I know, I live with him!

1:06:251:06:34

Good save by Chris Kirkland. Does

she have the attributes to become a

1:06:341:06:40

top goalkeeper?

Think she does. Shot

stopping is probably her best

1:06:401:06:45

attribute. She has much to do on her

distribution and talking but she has

1:06:451:06:51

gone to Liverpool and with the

academies they try to get them

1:06:511:06:54

playing out from the back, but she's

picking up slowly. She knows she's

1:06:541:06:57

got to work hard at that. She has

always been a Liverpool fan so it

1:06:571:07:02

was special when she signed. But I

told her that the hard work begins

1:07:021:07:07

now.

What's it like training with

the Academy? It is exciting. When

1:07:071:07:12

you think you're going to train with

Liverpool, at first it was just

1:07:121:07:18

like, amazing, kind of thing but I

have been better at getting good

1:07:181:07:21

with my feet, kind of thing, because

my dad says you have to be good with

1:07:211:07:25

your feet to be a goalkeeper these

days.

1:07:251:07:31

Who was the best goalkeeper?

Probably the German goalkeeper. She

1:07:381:07:44

was just very imposing. When you

would go one at versus one against,

1:07:441:07:50

you'd be thinking, like...

A bit

scary?

Like Peter Schmeichel!

What

1:07:501:08:00

do you like about goalkeeping?

I

like my shot stopping. Goalkeeper is

1:08:001:08:05

the toughest position on the pitch.

Very unforgiving. One mistake and it

1:08:051:08:10

is in the back of the net, but the

very good ones make less mistakes,

1:08:101:08:14

and that is what it is. Coaching is

a big part of it, but she has two

1:08:141:08:20

improved, to train hard. You are

going to make mistakes and it is how

1:08:201:08:24

you respond, instead of feeling

down, save the next shot.

You must

1:08:241:08:30

be proud. She has worked so hard.

She has done at herself. And she's

1:08:301:08:37

on her dad was like footsteps, but

she has got the talent herself,

1:08:371:08:42

she's got the habit, she has worked

hard, and I just hope that it can

1:08:421:08:46

poorer.

What is your dream? -- that

it can continue poorer. What is your

1:08:461:08:53

dream, is it to play in a Cup Final

for Liverpool?

I want to play in the

1:08:531:08:58

World Cup one day as well.

Fantastic. It's the FA Cup final.

1:08:581:09:11

This is the winning penalty.

Pressure!

1:09:111:09:17

Pressure! Quality! Absolute quality!

Do you want to represent England or

1:09:191:09:23

Scotland? The pressure is on!

1:09:231:09:31

The Premier League show is back

after its winter break this week.

1:09:381:09:41

You will hear from Danny Welbeck

about the rivalry between Manchester

1:09:411:09:46

United and Liverpool. It's also on

Radio 5Live at Saturday my side. And

1:09:461:09:52

the Six Nations returns with piles

against England on Saturday

1:09:521:09:54

afternoon. It is all to play for, in

the next 45 minutes. Can England win

1:09:541:10:03

the SheBelieves Cup? Our commentary

1:10:031:10:08

the next 45 minutes. Can England win

the SheBelieves Cup? Our commentary

1:10:081:10:08

team can tell us. As things stand,

they will. It is 0-0 with the USA at

1:10:081:10:16

half-time. That would mean that

England and the USA both up five

1:10:161:10:20

points for their three games but

England, by virtue of that big win

1:10:201:10:23

over France in their opening game,

would win the SheBelieves Cup for

1:10:231:10:28

the first time on goal difference

six substitutes allowed for each

1:10:281:10:34

side in this tournament. Sue Smith,

should Phil Neville change things

1:10:341:10:39

around early in the second half?

I

would leave it for 10-15 minutes but

1:10:391:10:44

I would not a surprise to see the

likes of Toni Duggan come on, these

1:10:441:10:50

are players that can come on and

change a game. Plus the amount of

1:10:501:10:55

work rate that Ellen White did in

the last game and has done in this

1:10:551:11:00

first half, Melissa Lawley on the

other side, it is a tough job

1:11:001:11:04

because your getting back defending

then you have to try and get forward

1:11:041:11:08

and help Jodie Taylor out, so I

would not be surprised if he makes

1:11:081:11:11

changes partway through the second

half.

We are under way. A draw or a

1:11:111:11:17

win will do it for England. We will

see them left the SheBelieves Cup.

1:11:171:11:23

The USA have two win. It is 0-0.

1:11:231:11:30

The USA have two win. It is 0-0. And

again, it is imperative that England

1:11:301:11:33

start the second half solidly,

although a nervous clearance from

1:11:331:11:41

Karen Bardsley and the USA will hope

to start the second half like they

1:11:411:11:47

finished the first, very strongly.

Solid, with the throw-in. Behind

1:11:471:11:53

front early corner, inside the

opening minute of the second half.

1:11:531:11:58

-- Sonnett with the throw-in. It

will be Megan Rapinoe, who played

1:11:581:12:10

the corner short, the first corner

of the game in the first half. We'll

1:12:101:12:14

see swing it in this time? Two

England players out there this time.

1:12:141:12:21

That was looking for Davison. Lloyd

was coming in behind her. It goes

1:12:211:12:29

behind for England goal kick.

I was

watching for Lloyd, I couldn't see

1:12:291:12:34

her in the area. She started really

far back outside the area, trying to

1:12:341:12:39

make that late run, when nobody

picked her up. If the delivery was

1:12:391:12:43

right, she could have been in there.

Making a 250th appearance for the

1:12:431:12:50

USA this evening. Mellisa

Hollingsworth Flag offside.

1:12:501:12:56

Frustrating for England. They got --

Melissa Lawley, flagged offside. She

1:12:561:13:06

was so impressive in the 2-2 draw

with Germany. Did enough in that

1:13:061:13:11

match the keep her place for this

third and final game. But Toni

1:13:111:13:16

Duggan and Nikita Parris on the

bench. Toni Duggan playing very well

1:13:161:13:21

in the opener against France.

Nikita

Parris looking lively as well.

1:13:211:13:27

That's a real luxury for Phil

Neville doubt, that his former

1:13:271:13:30

players are all playing well. It

must have been a typical decision

1:13:301:13:33

for him.

1:13:331:13:39

for him.

Barnsley just about get it

away. And there was a smile from

1:13:401:13:45

Mallory Pugh, and a grimace from

Abbie McManus.

Just a really long,

1:13:451:13:51

direct ball, straight on to Mallory

Pugh. She must be fast because Demi

1:13:511:13:57

Stokes isn't slow, and she was able

to beat her in a race.

Second corner

1:13:571:14:04

in quick succession for the US, from

Megan Rapinoe. It is swung in high.

1:14:041:14:12

Away by Lucy Bronze. USA keep it

alive. Mallory Pugh got the

1:14:121:14:21

execution wrong. Morgan with the

backheel. Lawley will bring it away.

1:14:211:14:31

She can't keep it in. And the USA

cranking up the pressure. They know

1:14:311:14:38

they need a victory if they are to

lift the SheBelieves Cup. England,

1:14:381:14:42

under all sorts of early pressure.

And it is breaking down going

1:14:421:14:48

forward for Phil Neville's side.

That was a foul on Fran Kirby,

1:14:481:14:53

surely. Not sure of the referee has

given it. Yes, she has given it.

1:14:531:15:04

Bronze, two walls, who is

dispossessed to easily by Horan. --

1:15:051:15:16

Walsh is dispossessed to easily.

Alex Morgan with eight goals in the

1:15:161:15:23

last ten games for the USA. D1 and

total in 138 appearances. Prolific

1:15:231:15:31

striker -- 81 goals in total.

1:15:311:15:36

Crystal Dunn is foul. USA, free

kick. Keira Walsh, only 20.

1:15:431:15:50

Proficient player for Manchester

City. Plays regularly for them.

1:15:501:15:56

Taking a little bit too much time on

the ball in this match. She will

1:15:561:16:02

have the space and time she

sometimes has in the WSL. McManus

1:16:021:16:09

making sure that the header back

from Millie Bright doesn't fall to

1:16:091:16:15

Alex Morgan.

If you take more than

two three patches they are there,

1:16:151:16:20

they are stopping from turning.

Jodie Taylor will chase this. Alice

1:16:201:16:27

Anaya is out early. She is so good

at dictating the play from that

1:16:271:16:33

defensive midfield position for

Manchester City, but this is a whole

1:16:331:16:38

other level. The toughest test you

can face in woman's football, the

1:16:381:16:44

USA, the world champions, on home

soil, as well.

She is an

1:16:441:16:50

unbelievable player, Keira Walsh.

Despite her young years. Good

1:16:501:16:54

vision. She just protects that back

four.

1:16:541:17:01

four.

Here, we have the early double

double -- double substitution and it

1:17:011:17:06

is Toni Duggan and Nikita Parris.

Phil Neville, mindful of how the USA

1:17:061:17:11

have started the second half.

Melissa Lawley making way for

1:17:111:17:16

Duggan.

1:17:161:17:21

Duggan. Hasn't had the impact that

she did against Germany.

1:17:211:17:28

she did against Germany. And Nikita

Parris comes on for Jodie Taylor.

1:17:291:17:32

Ellen White through the middle.

That

is what will happen. She will be

1:17:321:17:37

that pivotal player, Ellen White. I

think she is better, centrally. She

1:17:371:17:43

has been outstanding in the last

game. She held the ball up well.

1:17:431:17:55

Flag goes up against Nikita Parris.

Disappointing for England from an

1:17:551:18:00

attacking point of view, too many

offside is this evening. Phil

1:18:001:18:05

Neville, he will not be happy about

that. I think he is laughing about

1:18:051:18:10

the incident earlier. He wishes that

he has is shin pads on.

1:18:101:18:19

Unintentional from Megan Rapinoe.

I'm sure that Phil Neville gave as

1:18:231:18:26

good as he gets!

1:18:261:18:33

good as he gets! Dahlkemper. The

USA, on beaten in their last 11

1:18:331:18:43

games. -- unbeaten. Last time they

tasted defeat was at the tournament

1:18:431:18:52

of nations last summer from

Australia. Similar tournament to

1:18:521:18:57

this, or slightly less prestigious

teams, going by the world rankings.

1:18:571:19:01

But some decent teams. Japan and

Brazil also enrolled.

1:19:011:19:05

But some decent teams. Japan and

Brazil also enrolled.

The USA came

1:19:051:19:10

second in that tournament to

Australia. Might have been caught a

1:19:101:19:15

little late, there, but play allowed

to continue. It only takes one,

1:19:151:19:23

though.

It does. And the home side

are taking a very high line, but

1:19:231:19:31

when you notice that, gives you an

extra yard. The pace that they have,

1:19:311:19:35

they don't need to be getting caught

offside. I understand that you are

1:19:351:19:39

playing on the shoulder. You are

just trying to get that little bit

1:19:391:19:43

extra. They don't need to do that.

It is just frustrating when you're a

1:19:431:19:48

midfielder trying to play that ball

through, and the forwards get caught

1:19:481:19:53

offside.

Rapinoe. To Horan. Up

against Lucy Bronze. Looking for

1:19:531:20:06

Morgan. The header takes it away

from Carli Lloyd.

1:20:061:20:15

from Carli Lloyd. England getting

bodies back. Davidson.

1:20:151:20:24

bodies back. Davidson. Some pace on

the right-hand side. Stokes. England

1:20:261:20:31

bring it away. The ball over the

top, looking for Ellen White. All

1:20:311:20:38

the way through to Naeher.

Just that

weight of the past that has been

1:20:381:20:49

lacking for England. The weight of

the past has got to be perfect or it

1:20:491:20:55

just goes straight through to the

goalkeeper.

Just over 35 minutes to

1:20:551:21:01

play. If it stays like this, England

will win the SheBelieves Cup for the

1:21:011:21:05

first time. They only need a point.

But the USA are looking dangerous.

1:21:051:21:12

The touch from Lucy Bronze plays her

into trouble. Laid off to Rapinoe.

1:21:121:21:21

And a good save my Barnsley. The

second time she has kept England in

1:21:211:21:24

the game.

Good, strong wrists from

Karen Bardsley. She takes a big

1:21:241:21:34

touch, Lucy Bronze, thus you want it

in their? But then it is a poor

1:21:341:21:38

touch from Lucy Bronze. Karen

Bardsley makes amends with a good

1:21:381:21:45

save, down to her right. It was a

powerful shot that could have

1:21:451:21:48

sneaked in at the near post. Rapinoe

with the corner. Very low, and dealt

1:21:481:21:54

with by Walsh.

Done chases back --

Dunn chases back, pursued by Nikita

1:21:541:22:06

Parris.

1:22:061:22:11

Parris. Hope Solo, the legendary US

goalkeeper, not officially retired,

1:22:141:22:19

but was suspended in 2016 after

calling the Sweden team who beat

1:22:191:22:25

them in the Olympics "Cowards". She

has not played since for the US

1:22:251:22:28

national team. It is hard to see how

that relationship can be repaired.

1:22:281:22:35

So, Naeher is trying to prove that

she can be the number one goalkeeper

1:22:351:22:38

for the US and fill some very big

shoes.

You can't afford her ability

1:22:381:22:47

as a goalkeeper, Pope solo,

unbelievable goalkeeper. Quite a

1:22:471:22:53

controversial character.

1:22:531:22:58

controversial character. -- Hope

Solo.

1:22:591:23:07

That were similar to the effort she

had against France early on. When

1:23:071:23:10

she found the back of the net. Toni

Duggan, shooting early. And not too

1:23:101:23:17

far away.

That's why she likes

playing on the left, because she can

1:23:171:23:21

cut in on her favoured right foot.

She is trying to curl it into the

1:23:211:23:25

far corner. Just couldn't get enough

whip on it.

It just gives the USA

1:23:251:23:35

something to think about, Sue Smith.

England have not sent in many shots

1:23:351:23:39

on their goal.

Not at all. If you

think that your players going to

1:23:391:23:45

take it early. Morgan making the

run, how little deflection, and it

1:23:451:23:51

has gone in, and it is another own

goal! England fall behind to the

1:23:511:23:55

USA.

And again the defending is

questionable. Megan Rapinoe created

1:23:551:24:03

the opportunity. Barnsley and Millie

Bright, between them, could not get

1:24:031:24:10

it away. USA one, England nil. And

as it stands, the USA will win the

1:24:101:24:17

SheBelieves Cup.

You can see Megan

Rapinoe, she has so much time and

1:24:171:24:22

space to whip the ball in. It takes

a deflection off Abbie McManus. You

1:24:221:24:28

think, are they talking? Are they

communicating? Millie Bright doesn't

1:24:281:24:34

need to stretch for it. It is an

easy take for Karen Bardsley if

1:24:341:24:38

Millie Bright doesn't watch it. She

does touch it, unfortunately. It is

1:24:381:24:42

another own goal.

England's third

own goal of the tournament. Hugely

1:24:421:24:51

frustrating. Lucy Bronze Bell said

behind. All three own goals have

1:24:511:24:59

been scored by Millie Bright.

Sometimes there is not much you can

1:24:591:25:03

do about them, Sue Smith, but as you

say that was a decision, and she

1:25:031:25:08

made the wrong one.

The other two

were very unfortunate. Especially

1:25:081:25:13

the one that hit the back of her

heel, she didn't know anything about

1:25:131:25:18

that, but that was a decision. You

wonder if it is in her head, if

1:25:181:25:23

Karen Bardsley shouts to, which I'm

sure she would have done, and that

1:25:231:25:28

is just an easy take.

I wonder if

the deflection and settled.

Without

1:25:281:25:37

a doubt that would have had an

impact.

Can England hit back

1:25:371:25:42

immediately? Nikita Parris, up

against Dunn. Getting a second bite

1:25:421:25:49

at the cherry.

1:25:491:25:54

at the cherry. USA, goalkick. After

the USA took the lead against

1:25:551:26:00

France, France equalised within

three minutes. Can England find a

1:26:001:26:06

way to hit back? You have to say on

the balance of play, Sue Smith, it

1:26:061:26:14

is this for the USA.

Definitely.

They have played themselves into

1:26:141:26:20

trouble, though. Parris again claims

for the corner and doesn't get it.

1:26:201:26:28

England not making the most of that

opportunity, but good awareness by

1:26:281:26:32

Crystal Dunn, the former Chelsea

player. The fact that England have

1:26:321:26:39

gone a goal down and they are

showing that resilience to try and

1:26:391:26:44

get themselves back into the game...

They know they can do it. They did

1:26:441:26:48

it twice against Germany in the last

match, to draw, 2-2.

1:26:481:26:56

match, to draw, 2-2. Here's Lucy

Bronze. Intercepted.

1:26:561:27:06

Bronze. Intercepted. Allie Long

intercepts and brings it away.

1:27:061:27:12

Horan. Up against Parris who is

screaming for everything and getting

1:27:131:27:18

nothing. You can't fault her desire,

Nikita Parris. What does he do now?

1:27:181:27:27

Nil he's got to continue with how

they are playing. That's just an

1:27:271:27:31

unfortunate own goal.

His players

need to be better on the ball. There

1:27:311:27:38

have been times they have got

themselves into positions and maybe

1:27:381:27:42

made the wrong decision. Whether

that is being caught offside,

1:27:421:27:47

playing the wrong ball, playing an

overhead pass, the quality just

1:27:471:27:50

needs to be better in that final

third. How he has set them up, I

1:27:501:27:55

think, is OK.

He has more options on

the bench, the likes of the

1:27:551:28:02

experienced Jill Scott. Farrer

Williams as well, if he wants to

1:28:021:28:09

change it up in midfield. Rachel

Daly, another forward option. But

1:28:091:28:14

the two key forward players have

come on, you would say, Toni Duggan

1:28:141:28:20

and Nikita Parris.

They need a bit

of height in there, especially for

1:28:201:28:26

set pieces, and just some real

energy from the middle of the park.

1:28:261:28:37

The clearance from Naeher collected

by Duggan. Up against Sonnett.

1:28:371:28:42

Christians are looking for Parris

who has space and headed straight at

1:28:421:28:50

Naeher. In fact, it is given as

offside. Again, Nikita Parris is

1:28:501:28:58

just peeling off the last defender

and finding that bit of space.

1:28:581:29:06

England found a way to win against

the USA at the SheBelieves Cup last

1:29:081:29:13

year. They need to find a goal from

somewhere, if they are to get the

1:29:131:29:20

points that will see them with the

trophy for the first time. At the

1:29:201:29:27

moment, the SheBelieves Cup is

coming home to America. France won

1:29:271:29:31

it last year. Ellen White will

chases. -- chase this. USA throw.

1:29:311:29:46

chases. -- chase this. USA throw. So

much travelling involved in this

1:29:461:29:49

tournament, as well. Games held in

three different host cities. That

1:29:491:29:54

may come into Phil Neville's mind,

as well. Looking to get some fresh

1:29:541:30:01

legs onto the pitch at some point.

She has been quite today.

I think

1:30:011:30:10

they have identified her as key.

USA

coming forward, looking for Alex

1:30:101:30:18

Morgan. Too much on it for them to

keep it in. More good work from the

1:30:181:30:24

19-year-old Mallory Pugh.

1:30:241:30:29

There is a confidence about the way

the USA are moving the ball.

1:30:291:30:35

Bright will have to clear her head

after that third own goal of the

1:30:351:30:40

tournament for her.

Kirby.

1:30:401:30:46

Space for Parris, Dunn wasn't

covering the run. Nikita Parris.

1:30:461:30:55

Dunn clear, Bronze almost

dispossessing Rapinoe. England pick

1:30:551:31:01

it back up through Walsh.

Christensen. Christensen: Good

1:31:011:31:05

pressure. Duggan. Stokes getting in

on the attack. Haven't seen too much

1:31:051:31:11

of that today.

Christensen's ball in and White was

1:31:111:31:19

unmarked.

Naeher brings it away but the USA

1:31:191:31:24

are not coping with the balls in the

box.

I think when England can get

1:31:241:31:29

Toni Duggan or Nikita Parris out

wide or your full-backs overlapping

1:31:291:31:33

and they can come infeed and they

get good deliveries into the box,

1:31:331:31:38

they are not picking up the players

very well. Ellen White there, free

1:31:381:31:43

header, if she had known she had

more time, with her ability. She

1:31:431:31:47

probably should have done better.

Crystal Dunn playing at left-back,

1:31:471:31:53

is not a full-back. She is a winger,

a forward player. She did play a

1:31:531:32:00

wing-back for Chelsea during her

time there.

1:32:001:32:06

In the spring series. But as we saw

a couple of moments ago, she just

1:32:061:32:13

let Nikita Parris far too much

space. Alex Morgan will chase this,

1:32:131:32:18

this could be a killer second goal

for the USA. But Morgan can't find

1:32:181:32:23

Rapinoe and Stokes clears away.

England living on the edge, they

1:32:231:32:30

have to push forward, they have to

go for it. Here is Duggan.

1:32:301:32:38

Looking for Kirby, headed away by

Dahlkemper. Parris and Duggan, doing

1:32:451:32:48

what they have been brought on the

do. If will is a route back in to

1:32:481:32:52

this game for England it looks it

may come from those wide areas. They

1:32:521:32:58

have made an impact. Both have pace,

both of them want to try and beat

1:32:581:33:01

the full-back.

England as things stand will finish

1:33:011:33:12

second.

In the SheBelieves Cup.

1:33:121:33:19

It would still be their best finish

at the tournament but they want to

1:33:201:33:23

win. You only need a point. It is

against the World Champions, they

1:33:231:33:32

know they are so close. But there is

hope.

They will want to win. The

1:33:321:33:38

manager is a winner, the players are

winners.

1:33:381:33:45

They will certainly give everything

now.

1:33:451:33:52

USA. Carli Lloyd.

The two time world Player of the

1:33:521:34:00

Year.

Nominated last year as well.

1:34:001:34:07

Christensen playing on the shoulder

of the defence. Kirby still going.

1:34:101:34:17

Will certainly give everything now.

USA. Carli Lloyd.

1:34:171:34:18

The two time world Player of the

Year.

1:34:181:34:20

Nominated last year as well.

Christensen playing on the shoulder

1:34:201:34:22

of the defence. Kirby still going.

Parris is "Why didn't you play it to

1:34:221:34:25

me?"

They are both arguing. Fran

Kirby wanted Nikita Parris to run

1:34:251:34:27

out wide, to take a player away.

Whereas Nikita Parris wanted to ball

1:34:271:34:30

so she was trying to come infeed. It

is better from Kirby. I know it was

1:34:301:34:35

a poor finish but picking the ball

up in between the lines and driving

1:34:351:34:39

at the defence. You can see MP

wants the ball straightaway --

1:34:391:34:43

Nikita Parris wants the ball

straightaway. Just miscommunication.

1:34:431:34:48

Goal against France in the opening

game, Fran Kirby was her 111th goal

1:34:481:34:54

in 111 games for club and country,

as the USA win a free kick.

1:34:541:34:59

Regardless of whether she has been

really in the game tonight, it is a

1:34:591:35:02

remarkable record.

Yes.

It really is.

Allie Long. Not too

1:35:021:35:18

happy with the left -- referee.

The USA, have a set piece. Taken

1:35:181:35:25

quickly. England sleeping. Here is

Dunn.

1:35:251:35:30

Too easily past Parris, floats to it

the back post and it is wasted.

1:35:301:35:41

That is why you have to remain

focussed for the entire game. They

1:35:411:35:46

just do things quickly. They are

clever player, that is why they are

1:35:461:35:49

number one in the world. They will

take free-kicks and catch you off

1:35:491:35:53

guard.

She was nominated for the US Player

1:35:531:36:04

of the Year Lyndsey Horan, won by

Ertz Ertz. She has been nursing --

1:36:041:36:08

Julie efforts. She has been nursing

an injury. -- Ertz.

1:36:081:36:17

20 minutes to play. England need to

find a goal.

1:36:191:36:23

If they are to earn the point. That

would see them lift the SheBelieves

1:36:231:36:28

Cup. As it stands, the USA will be

the champions.

1:36:281:36:35

For the second time. Davidson.

Kirby. That is the free kick. Then,

1:36:351:36:43

Parris concedes one out of

frustration. From the foul on Long.

1:36:431:36:48

I was going to say the same. The

referee has let quite a lot go. I

1:36:481:36:54

thought that was a foul on Fran

Kirby. Couldn't see it from that

1:36:541:36:57

angle.

The foul was given for the Nikita

1:36:571:37:05

Parris. Just frustration.

1:37:051:37:16

Davidson. Trying to put pressure on

that US back-line, and it is working

1:37:191:37:26

in a fashion.

Naeher needing to race back quickly

1:37:261:37:33

to prevent that ball going out of

play.

1:37:331:37:40

Urn tern o uncertain as to who to

distribute it to. England need to

1:37:401:37:44

find any way they can, to unsettle

the USA who have shown glimpses of

1:37:441:37:49

weakness at the back.

1:37:491:37:55

The hosts will be happy enough to

stay in possession. Davidson.

1:38:031:38:12

Anticipated by Bronze. Morgan.

Christensen. Robbed by Rapinoe.

1:38:121:38:16

Fouled by Rapinoe.

1:38:161:38:27

The scrappier it get, I am sure the

USA won't mind, they are not happy

1:38:271:38:34

to sit back, they know one goal

would change it. A goal from England

1:38:341:38:39

without put them back in possession.

. The more that England start to

1:38:391:38:44

commit more players forward. How

quickly the US can break. Rapinoe

1:38:441:38:54

dispossessed by Bronze. Loses it

herself. The England standing

1:38:541:38:59

captain -- stand in captain, who is

Alex Morgan, past Bright. Past

1:38:591:39:04

McManus. Who clears away from Pugh.

England's defence having to work

1:39:041:39:08

hard.

1:39:081:39:18

The USA make a substitution. Allie

Long will depart.

1:39:251:39:32

Houara hue -- Huerta sure -- Sofia

Huerta replacing her. It is an

1:39:401:39:46

interesting story, Huerta. She is a

former Mexico international. Never

1:39:461:39:50

played a competitive game. Born in

the US, but played for Mexico at

1:39:501:39:55

youth and senior level after failing

to break in through the US youth

1:39:551:39:59

teams.

Switched allegiance in September and

1:39:591:40:04

became the only player to play for

and against the US soccer team, as

1:40:041:40:12

Rachel Daly replaces Fran Kirby.

Another throw of the dice from Phil

1:40:121:40:18

Neville. Each side able to make six

substitution, so he still has to

1:40:181:40:24

play with.

She looked lively in the

last game. Had an opportunity.

1:40:241:40:32

The ball where the USA want it. Deep

in England territory.

1:40:341:40:41

Brian wins the corner.

We have our own band, the USA with

1:40:411:40:51

theirs. Clearly enjoy that as well,

in fact it is a goal kick much to

1:40:511:41:00

the disme sure of the home fans --

disme Ulloa -- displeasure.

1:41:001:41:10

15 minutes to play. England need a

goal.

1:41:111:41:16

If they are to win the SheBelieves

Cup. They just need a point.

1:41:161:41:26

Toni Duggan has gone nor central

since Fran Kirby has gone off.

1:41:261:41:30

-- more central.

Whether she is playing as a two with

1:41:301:41:40

Ellen White white or just behind.

Damilola Taylor on the -- Rachel

1:41:401:41:45

Daly on the right-hand side.

1:41:451:41:46

Dahlkemper.

We are hearing that the USA goal has

1:41:541:42:03

actually now been credited to Karen

Bardsley as an own goal.

1:42:031:42:10

Might be one for the goals panel as

it were. Initially given to Millie

1:42:101:42:14

Bright.

Final touch was off Bardsley.

1:42:141:42:21

But the deflection from McManus

meant that it was heading towards

1:42:211:42:23

the goal.

But as things stand that is who has

1:42:231:42:30

got it. I am sure Millie Bright will

be pleased not to have three own

1:42:301:42:35

goals from a tournament, but in the

end the ball is in the back of the

1:42:351:42:38

net and it is gloom for England and

joy for the USA is the up shot.

1:42:381:42:45

Here is Doug. Daly making the run to

her right.

1:42:451:42:49

-- Duggan. Shot driven in by

cresten. White was stretching.

1:42:491:42:54

Couldn't get a touch.

It is good to see Izzy Christiansen

1:42:541:42:59

getting forward a bit more. She had

to sit back and do defending in this

1:42:591:43:04

game. She has the ability to score

from outside the area like that.

1:43:041:43:08

For Manchester City she makes the

late runs into the box.

1:43:081:43:12

Seen her score a few like that.

She is Manchester City's top store

1:43:121:43:19

scorer this season.

13 goals.

1:43:191:43:24

Six penalties as well. England could

earn a spot kick.

1:43:241:43:28

Could have conceded one in the first

half. We never saw a replay of that

1:43:281:43:33

Millie Bright challenge, She is

Manchester City's top store scorer

1:43:331:43:36

this season.

13 goals.

1:43:361:43:37

Six penalties as well. England could

earn a spot kick.

1:43:371:43:39

Could have conceded one in the first

half. We never saw a replay of that

1:43:391:43:42

Millie Bright challenge, but we She

is Manchester City's top store

1:43:421:43:44

scorer this season.

13 goals.

1:43:441:43:45

Six penalties as well. England could

earn a spot kick.

1:43:451:43:47

Could have conceded one in the first

half. We never saw a replay of that

1:43:471:43:50

Millie Bright challenge, but we both

went "Ooh" at the time. Here is

1:43:501:43:53

Duggan.

Clearance.

1:43:531:43:53

Bright penalised.

1:43:531:44:03

Naeher. Morgan. To Pugh.

Dispossessed by Stokes.

1:44:171:44:29

Christensen wants it in the centre

and gets it. Forward to Duggan.

1:44:291:44:34

Trying to get the ball out from

under her feet. Christensen, space

1:44:341:44:39

on the right-hand side for Lucy

Bronze. Daly cuts inside. Bronze. Up

1:44:391:44:42

against Dunn. Makes the challenge,

England corner.

1:44:421:44:46

They are not out of this yet.

When

England get the ball wide, when they

1:44:461:44:52

switch it quickly, they are able to

get at the American back-line.

1:44:521:45:00

Gill Ellis about to send Savannah

McCaskill into the fray.

1:45:001:45:05

They will have that corner.

Parris short to Christensen. Trying

1:45:051:45:16

to work something.

1:45:161:45:23

to work something. Marshalling their

defence Wellham Walsh, Parris, able

1:45:231:45:24

to turn to the far post, back across

goal. Cleared by Dahlkemper.

1:45:241:45:31

England throw.

Millie Bright at the far post, just

1:45:311:45:37

trying to help it back into the

danger area.

1:45:371:45:42

McCaskill. She comes on for Rapinoe,

who has run her socks off.

1:45:421:45:49

She has been excellent. Delivery at

types probably not as good as I have

1:45:491:45:55

seen her but she is always a threat.

Like I say, she works so hard, as

1:45:551:46:02

does the American team. I don't

think you could pick one player,

1:46:021:46:05

that is just a given.

So McCaskill on.

1:46:051:46:13

It was Rapinoe's ball into the box,

that ended up as an England own

1:46:131:46:18

goal. That is the difference as we

enter the final ten minutes. Between

1:46:181:46:24

the USA, winning the SheBelieves

Cup, and England losing it.

1:46:241:46:30

They will finish second.

1:46:301:46:36

They will finish second. Can they

claw their way back to the top of

1:46:371:46:40

pile? Walsh, Duggan. Crowded out.

They have to get the ball out wide.

1:46:401:46:52

Then get players in.

Christensen, penalised again.

Nikita

1:46:521:46:57

Parris the most vocal. You see that

from her at Manchester City. She

1:46:571:47:02

wants every decision. Why not?

They

say you should appeal, you never

1:47:021:47:06

know, just in case. They might

convince the referee and she does

1:47:061:47:11

appeal for everything. Scouser, you

see!

1:47:111:47:14

We are allowed to do that.

1:47:141:47:22

Naeher sends it long.

Towards Pugh. Away by Stokes.

1:47:281:47:40

Just about away from McCaskill, by

Millie Bright, who wins the throw as

1:47:421:47:45

well.

Savannah McCaskill nominated for USA

1:47:451:47:56

young Player of the Year, 2017. Only

made her debut in January against

1:47:561:48:01

Denmark.

Bronze. Walsh again taking too long

1:48:011:48:16

on the ball.

Here is Pugh coming forward. Walsh

1:48:161:48:21

does well to get back in, will break

to McCaskill.

1:48:211:48:24

Brian.

They can't latch on to it. Daly with

1:48:241:48:34

her foot in. All a bit scrappy in

the centre of the park. England

1:48:341:48:39

still coming forward.

1:48:391:48:44

still coming forward. Ellen White

scored an 89th minute winner at last

1:48:461:48:49

year's tournament against the USA. A

late leveller would do it.

1:48:491:48:56

Lloyd, just over. Bardsley may well

have had it covered. She hasn't had

1:49:091:49:15

the liveliest of games Carli Lloyd

but she only needs one chance.

She

1:49:151:49:18

is always a threat in the box. She

gets in between, so Lucy Bronze and

1:49:181:49:24

Abbie McManus. So o good in the air.

She times her jump to perfection.

1:49:241:49:29

She can't get over the ball.

Thankfully for England.

She is only

1:49:291:49:36

two goals away from scoring 100

goals from the USA. She is already

1:49:361:49:43

their all time leading goal scoring

midfielder. She would become only

1:49:431:49:46

the sixth player to do that in USA

history.

1:49:461:49:57

It is England who need a goal, to

win the SheBelieves Cup. Daly, wins

1:49:571:50:01

another corner.

And this time surely England have to

1:50:011:50:05

swing it in.

When you have the

ability of Millie Bright whose

1:50:051:50:11

quality in the air, you have

somebody who can deliver a very good

1:50:111:50:15

set piece, I think just get it in.

He knows what he wants to happen.

1:50:151:50:27

Parris assumes responsibilities.

McManus and Bright both up. White

1:50:271:50:31

and Daly in there, they play it

short. It is something they have

1:50:311:50:35

worked on. Christensen. Bronze.

Christensen. Headed away. Only as

1:50:351:50:45

far as Walsh. Stokes. They are going

to have to be careful they don't

1:50:451:50:52

lose it here. Stokes with a bit of

space.

1:50:521:50:57

Allows it to run. That is the wrong

decision, White will pick it up.

1:50:571:51:01

Christensen.

Off Carli Lloyd. God work by

1:51:011:51:10

Christensen.

England will have a set piece.

1:51:101:51:21

Christensen a little winded by that

challenge.

I don't think she was

1:51:211:51:24

expecting it.

It is actually quite late from Carli

1:51:241:51:29

Lloyd.

I think she said to the referee she

1:51:291:51:37

needs a minute to get her breath

back.

1:51:371:51:46

So free kick to England. Bronze and

Parris over it. Running out of time

1:51:461:51:50

but knowing one goal will do.

1:51:501:51:55

And Walsh is off and Scott is on.

There are debates about making the

1:51:581:52:03

merits of a substitution before a

corner when you throw on a player

1:52:031:52:09

who is 5'11" like Jill Scot, why

not? Hannah Blundell coming on for

1:52:091:52:16

Demi Stokes, a big moment for the

23-year-old. Her England debut.

1:52:161:52:23

Bronze. Short to Christensen. Swings

it in and headed in, off the line.

1:52:231:52:30

Off the post. Off the line. So close

for Ellen White.

1:52:301:52:36

Oh, she thought she had done it. We

thought she had done it.

1:52:361:52:42

Still 1-0 USA he can't believe it. I

think we all thought it was in. It

1:52:421:52:47

was a well worked free kick. Ellen

White does well to get up, and she

1:52:471:52:52

hits the post. I don't know how it

didn't go in.

1:52:521:52:56

And Davidson was there in the right

place.

1:52:561:52:58

To get it away. Away. England still

coming forward.

1:52:581:53:05

We talked about Ellen White scoring

that late winner against the USA,

1:53:051:53:11

she won't get closer to a late

leveller.

That was so close.

1:53:111:53:18

A brilliant header as well. She gets

up so well. Her run, glides the

1:53:181:53:24

ball. Exactly where it should, as

it's coming in.

1:53:241:53:31

Everything was perfect apart from it

didn't go in the back of the net!

1:53:311:53:35

You could see a few of the players I

think went down to their knee, you

1:53:351:53:40

hope they have one more chance.

Agonising. Agonising for England and

1:53:401:53:45

that is the question, isn't it, that

runs through your mind. Was that it?

1:53:451:53:52

Parris.

Too quick for Huerta who was

1:53:521:53:58

sleeping.

White will chase. Daly.

1:53:581:54:06

Naeher under pressure.

The USA looking nervy.

1:54:061:54:11

Can England snatch a draw? Can they

snatch the SheBelieves Cup? They

1:54:111:54:17

thought they had done. Parris.

Penalised it may well be for a foul

1:54:171:54:28

throw. Can't see what else was wrong

there.

Nikita Parris, I don't think

1:54:281:54:34

she knows either does she.

1:54:341:54:44

she knows either does she. I think

it is here from the throw. Do you

1:54:441:54:46

think it was a hand ball?

It is off

the stop of her shoulder.

1:54:461:54:54

England free kick. Needs to get it

up the pitch quickly.

1:54:551:55:03

In fact it is a throw.

Duggan.

1:55:031:55:13

Parris.

Looking for Bronze who is getting

1:55:131:55:18

forward now.

The England captain.

1:55:181:55:23

Duggan can't reach it.

Into the final minute of normal

1:55:231:55:29

time. A defeat for England will see

the USA lift the SheBelieves Cup.

1:55:291:55:36

England just need a goal.

1:55:361:55:39

Christensen. Down by McCaskill.

1:55:391:55:50

Blundell to Parris. McCaskill. On by

Lloyd.

1:55:501:56:07

Lloyd. Daly.

Can can't reach

1:56:071:56:12

Christensen. Down by McCaskill.

Blundell to Parris.

1:56:121:56:13

Christensen. Down by McCaskill.

Blundell to Parris. McCaskill. On by

1:56:131:56:15

Lloyd. Daly.

Can hear Phil Neville shouting "Go".

1:56:151:56:17

That is what England have to do.

Into stoppage time. Throw taken

1:56:171:56:19

quickly by Daly. Three minutes

added. Three minutes for England to

1:56:191:56:23

find an equaliser. Having come so

close, hitting the post through

1:56:231:56:26

Ellen White.

Daly.

1:56:261:56:30

Scott leaves it.

England are penalised.

1:56:301:56:38

The USA just running down the clock.

That was nearly a nice move from

1:56:381:56:45

England, Jill Scot with a little

over. Went for the return but she

1:56:451:56:50

didn't have the pace to get beyond

Crystal Dunn. Who despite

1:56:501:56:55

positionally she is not great but

because of her pace she can get back

1:56:551:56:58

in and defend.

Christensen. Blundell. Long ball

1:56:581:57:07

forward. Parris will chase.

1:57:071:57:17

forward. Parris will chase. White

causing Naeher to pick it up.

1:57:171:57:24

Claiming it has been held on to for

far too long. Ellen White.

1:57:241:57:31

England have overall still had a

very good tournament. But they will

1:57:361:57:45

be keen disappointment at losing

this game, as losing the SheBelieves

1:57:451:57:48

Cup.

Daly can't keep that in. USA throw.

1:57:481:57:55

The host nation are edging closer.

1:57:551:58:03

They run down the clock. Mallory

Pugh will come off. Lynn ill yaps

1:58:031:58:10

will come on -- Lynn Williams will

come on. She scored their own goal

1:58:101:58:15

at the SheBelieves Cup last year,

which ended with the USA finishing

1:58:151:58:19

bottom. They are less than 60

seconds away from finishing top of

1:58:191:58:23

the pile this year.

1:58:231:58:31

Dunn with the throw.

1:58:331:58:39

Here is Dunn. 20 seconds. To play.

It is not going to be enough for

1:58:491:58:55

England today.

Could get worse, Carli Lloyd.

1:58:551:59:01

Christensen. Bundled over, England

win the free kick.

1:59:011:59:06

The time is almost up. They don't

have the ball.

1:59:061:59:14

The referee ready and waiting.

Two balls on the pitch now.

1:59:191:59:36

Two balls on the pitch now. Bronze.

And there is the full-time whistle.

1:59:361:59:42

Despair for England, but joy for the

USA. They win the SheBelieves Cup

1:59:421:59:49

for the second time. Karen Bardsley

own goal the difference in the

1:59:491:59:54

second half. It is still coming up

as Millie Bright. We understand it

1:59:542:00:00

has been credited to Bardsley,

either way it is an England own goal

2:00:002:00:07

and defending letting them down.

They have to be proud of themes what

2:00:072:00:10

they have achieved in this

SheBelieves Cup, it is the best ever

2:00:102:00:14

finish, the performance against

France was excellent, the resilience

2:00:142:00:20

against jer I thought at times they

were well-organised. They created

2:00:202:00:26

chances, I actually thought Ellen

White equalise for them. So

2:00:262:00:29

unfortunate but yes, that is

something they need to address, the

2:00:292:00:33

sloppy defensive goal, that is now

two in the last game, one in this

2:00:332:00:36

game, something they need to work

on, but, I have to say positive for

2:00:362:00:41

England moving forward.

And there has been a lot of talk

2:00:412:00:46

about that winning mentality that

Phil Neville wanted to bring in, but

2:00:462:00:48

you can't do that every match and

you can't do that always or often

2:00:482:00:54

against the World Champion, the USA

who so often sweep all before them.

2:00:542:00:59

And they do, and I think they will

look at this game, they will reflect

2:00:592:01:03

on it and say, what do we need to do

to beat the World Champions, what

2:01:032:01:07

are the things that we have to

improve on individually and

2:01:072:01:10

collectively as a team, and I think

it would certainly be defensive

2:01:102:01:16

errors but you look at the players

that are missesches Steph Horton.

2:01:162:01:23

Karen Carney, so experienced, Jordan

knobs and they are close -- knob,

2:01:232:01:29

without them they managed to compete

with the best in the world.

Let us

2:01:292:01:32

head down Perch side. The England

boss Phil Neville is with Jo curry.

2:01:322:01:37

head down Perch side. The England

boss Phil Neville is with Jo curry.

2:01:372:01:39

Phil, so close, how tough was that

to take?

It was tough but it was

2:01:392:01:43

probably the most enjoyable game I

have had in the tournament so far.

2:01:432:01:47

Because what we came up against we

came up against a really good team.

2:01:472:01:50

We said before it was going to go

toe to toe. I felt early on maybe we

2:01:502:01:55

didn't show enough belief, but the

last 30 minutes we thought we

2:01:552:01:58

dominated. All of a sudden we got

courage on the ball and like I say I

2:01:582:02:02

think I have learned a lot about my

player, it is not now, where I want

2:02:022:02:07

to be winning tournaments even

though it is nice, it is in 12

2:02:072:02:10

months' time. It has been a

fantastic experience. I think every

2:02:102:02:15

player can be proud of their

performance.

The fact it was another

2:02:152:02:19

own goal, does that make it tougher?

That is not something that I am

2:02:192:02:25

happy about, because, you know you

look at the goal against France, you

2:02:252:02:28

look at the goals against Germany,

that is four we have conceded

2:02:282:02:32

through you know by handing them on

a plate, so if we can eradicate that

2:02:322:02:38

we can go toe to toe. America have a

good system. They play with

2:02:382:02:43

confidence and arrogance, I thought

the last 30 minutes we had a chance.

2:02:432:02:46

I think it was Ellen White that hit

the post. It was a good opportunity,

2:02:462:02:51

but overall I think it is

satisfactory, it will keep

2:02:512:02:55

everybody's feet on the ground. We

are on a journey.

We are excited to

2:02:552:03:00

see where that takes you. Well done

for the tournament.

2:03:002:03:04

Sorry... Speaking to our reporter Jo

Curry. A level-headed assessment.

It

2:03:042:03:13

has been excellent, from an England

perspective they will be ploughed.

2:03:132:03:16

What Phil Neville has said then,

they need to eradicate those silly

2:03:162:03:22

error, defensively, but going

forward, they were brave on the

2:03:222:03:25

ball, they did show the winning

mentally that he wanted to see, and

2:03:252:03:29

I think it is really positive. And

it isn't now they need to start

2:03:292:03:33

winning it is next year, if they can

do that, we will all be happy.

They

2:03:332:03:38

are going to the World Cup

qualifiers back to that Phil

2:03:382:03:42

Neville's first on the 6th April.

Against Wales in Southampton, expect

2:03:422:03:47

a good crowd for that and always

good to face a home nation.

It is.

2:03:472:03:50

It is going to be a tough game, it

will be a battle and I think

2:03:502:03:55

something that I am sure the girls

will relish playing against Wales,

2:03:552:04:04

they will take positives from think

am sure.

Terms of the USA still

2:04:042:04:08

showing what they can do.

Yes,

because they are, they are leaders

2:04:082:04:12

in women's football.

France will finish third.

2:04:122:04:23

France will finish third. USA finish

top. Between the topical Besiktas

2:04:232:04:26

team, they have been pipped to the

post by the USA. Thank you very much

2:04:262:04:31

for joining us this evening and have

a very good rest of your nigh.
