England, playing for bronze for a second straight Women's World Cup, started its campaign with three straight victories to win their group before defeating Cameroon and Norway in the knockout round. Phil Neville's group then suffered a 2–1 semifinal defeat against the United States. Christen Press's early goal put the Lionesses behind 1–0 just 10 minutes into the match. Ellen White scored the equalizer nine minutes later, but Alex Morgan's strike in the 31st minute helped the USWNT regain the lead. The Americans preserved the 2–1 win thanks to a game-saving, penalty stop from goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher.
