A sold out Wembley is becoming the norm for this England team who, just a few months ago, lifted the European Championships trophy after beating Germany to end the Lionesses’ quest for glory. After winning Euro 2022, England’s focus switched to securing qualification for the World Cup and that was wrapped up pretty neatly with the Lionesses perfect in their group, winning all 10 matches, scoring 80 and conceded none. So now the preparation begins for next summer’s tournament and England aren’t shying away from the big tests.
The USWNT are the final boss of women’s football and the reigning world champions, beating Netherlands in 2019. It was also the USWNT who knocked England out of the World Cup in the semi-finals, winning 2-1 in a game which saw an Ellen White goal ruled out for the slightest of offsides and Steph Houghton miss a late penalty. But England have come on leaps and bounds from the Phil Neville era, winning 20 of their 22 games under Wiegman across all competitions only drawing against Spain and Canada at the Arnold Clark Cup.
Whisper it quietly, but the USWNT’s powers may be dwindling. For some the 2019 World Cup was there for others to take but the USWNT utilised their winning experience to get over the line, in what was the last hurrah of the all-conquering side. While the USWNT are still a phenomenal team and the ones to beat, they haven’t looked as invincible under Vlatko Andonovski.
It’s weird to say that considering the USWNT are unbeaten in their past 21 games since losing to Canada in the semi-finals of the Olympics and have won 13 in a row. But a look at some of the opposition faced shows that such a run is to be expected. The USWNT have been playing their games against the likes of Paraguay, Uzbekistan and Colombia, and in their most recent batch of fixtures they were given a tough run by Nigeria. If there is a time for England to beat the USWNT and make a real statement, it’s now.

England Women v USWNT: Match Stats
England did have a favourable group in World Cup qualifying which has enhanced their attacking performance, but the Lionesses’ record is still breathtaking. In 22 games under Wiegman, England have scored 118 goals and conceded just five. The five teams to have broken England’s defence so far are Canada, Germany (twice), Netherlands and Spain, and the Lionesses have only trailed twice under Wiegman.
Beth Mead has been the star women for England and with Alessia Russo injured, she could be the focal point of the attack on Friday. Even if she isn’t, the Arsenal forward will be England’s biggest threat once again having been directly involved in 37 goals under Wiegman, scoring 21 and providing 16 assists.
England Women v USWNT: Team news
England have suffered a few injury blows in recent days. First Alessia Russo had to pull out injured, and she has since been joined on the sidelines by captain Leah Williamson and Lucy Parker, who had only just earned her first ever England call up. Lotte Wubben-Moy and Nikita Parris have been called up as replacements with the biggest question being who leads the line.
USWNT have also had to deal with drop outs, with Mallory Pugh leaving the squad for family reasons and Taylor Kornieck injured. Jaelin Howell has been brought in to replace Kornieck, while USWNT do still boast the likes of Crystal Dunn, Kristie Mewis, Lindsey Horan, Megan Rapinoe and Ballon d’Or nominee Trinity Rodman on their roster.
