Japan is looking to win back to back World Cups, but they have to get past England before they can get to the Final match. It looked like they were going to go to extra time against Australia when Mana Iwabuchi scored in the 87th minute to move Japan into the Semifinals. Japan hasn't scored a lot of goals this tournament, that was their fifth straight 1-0 game, but they don't let the other team score. England will have a tough time wrestling the ball away from Japan as Japan has dominated ball possession this tournament against their opponents. England got an exciting 2-1 win over Canada to catapult them into the Semifinals. They have scored two goals in their last four matches which will be tough to do against Japan, but the Lioness have gotten stronger with each passing game.
