Come On England! Our first football World Cup semi final since 1990, against Japan on Wednesday. They surely are teaching the so called men a lesson.

Completely agree Schiz - I think they have a real chance of winning this competition and if they do arguably - given the fact that few gave them even a chance before the start of the tournament it might be a greater achievement than that of 1966 Smile

I listened to their last match in bed. Not long after the Canadians scored I fell asleep so it was terrific news to hear, the next morning, that our women had come through as winners!

Well done them!

The 'Lionesses' are calling for the nation's backing so might have to see if I have any matchsticks for tonight's midnight kick-off.

C'mon Lionesses! Smile

The girls have already done much better than the men's team, who didn't even make the knockout stage in Brazil last year. So yes, come on girls & do your country proud!!

Desperately unlucky. England were by far the better team in the second half and hit the woodwork twice.
And Japan should never have been awarded the penalty, the push was clearly outside the area. The referee and assistant were useless.

But on the whole the ladies had a great tournament Very Happy

Good luck to the Lionesses for tomorrow night's match against Germany.

Rotten luck the other night. Sad
