England Beat Wales to Secure Semi-Final Match-up Against USA

Team England U19’s put on a dominant performance to beat Wales 12-4 in their quarterfinal match-up. England raced ahead to a 6 goal lead in the opening half and also looked dominant defensively. Luciana Delaney was presented the player of the game award, impressing the selectors with her offensive prowess in the game.

For Wales, their most impressive period came in the second half, controlling possession from the draw and going on a run of goals. The damage had already been done by this point. The Welsh will now face New Zealand in a placement game.

For England, they must now prepare for the reining World Champions, Team USA. The two met in the pool stages, and resulted in a 19-4 victory for USA. England will have learnt a lot from that game, and will be looking to challenge USA, especially at the draw and in midfield, where USA dominated last time.
