Lionesses face USA tonight in a group match in the Shebelieves Cup - Lionesses are the current holders- its the first time the two sides play each other since USA, (VAR assisted- the signs were there, for what was coming!), dumped Lionesses out of the Women's World cup on their way to winning the trophy.

It promises to be something of a grudge match, akin to a local derby at club level

Ageless USA women's talis(wo)man Rapinoe has admitted the rivalry between England Lionesses & USA women is 'Huge'

the match kicks of at 12 midnight UK time, live coverage is on BBC2 from 11.40pm straight after MOTD FA Cup highlights

Can't see them getting anything out of this one, I'm afraid. USA are on an amazing run at the moment and the Lionesses under par. Would love to be proved wrong, obviously.

I kind of agree but England are the holders and beat them last time in this competition iirc.

Lost 0-2

Passes going awry , midfield over run and struggled to cope with the yankesses high tempo high pressing approach

Holders of the Shebelieves cup , the Lionesses, currently sit at the bottom of their group behind yankessess , spain & japan (after one game)

Japan next for the lionesses on saturday around 6pm uk time kick off

Part of which must be down to DJing or going to (Rare Soul) allnighters most weekends for many, many years? ...being self employed does help of course ;)

Could easily be 1-1 now ...another half chance not capitalised on by lionesses ....and lionesses young keeper was lobbed at a corner thankfully a defender was on the goal line to clear it
