England are now on their way to hunt for their first-ever title in the World Cup, which is not impossible, considering their current run. They are doing well since the group stage, which puts them at the semi-finals stage. Moreover, England actually have a better chance of winning the title here, as the top contenders are no longer in the tournament. Top favorites such as USA, Germany, and Japan, are already eliminated, increasing England’s chances. Moreover, they are actually confident coming into this game, as they are flawless in their campaign. In the quarterfinals, England were able to beat Colombia, even without their star. Additionally, their flawless run in the their campaign is what will bring them the confidence here.

Lauren James will not be available here, as she remains to serve her suspension, following the red card she got. Meanwhile, Jess Carter, Millie Bright, and Alex Greenwood, will all continue to lead England’s backline. Russo on the other hand aims to add to her goals tally.

Although Australia have yet to book their spots in the finals, they already made history, as they are now in their best finish. This is a milestone for them, as this is the first time that Australia qualified for the semi-finals. However, they will not stop there, as they are aiming to reach greater heights by winning this match. They were able to defeat France in the quarterfinals, which is a huge boost for their confidence. Defense have been Australia’s number one strength in their campaign, a skill they want to keep in this match. Moreover, their number one advantage is their home crowd, since they are one of the hosts in the contest. Australia already had 31 matches in the World Cup, but they only managed to win 10. Hopefully for Australia, they could improve more for them to stand a chance in the finals.

Sam Kerr, who suffered injury throughout their campaign, but she is now ready to be a starter in this match. Moreover, Ellie Carpenter, Clare Hunt, Alanna Kennedy, and Steph Catley are all looking to provide for Australia as well.
