Women's World Cup: How to Watch USWNT vs. England, Live Stream, TV Channel, Odds

Politics might be adding to the headlines surrounding the U.S women's national team (USWNT), but the team remains firmly focused on events on the field.

The defending champions face England in Lyon on Tuesday as they look to reach a third consecutive World Cup final and defend the title they won in Canada four years ago.

The Americans knocked France out on Friday, with captain Megan Rapinoe scoring twice in a 2-1 victory to break the hosts' hearts. It was the perfect response to the criticism that had followed Rapinoe after President Donald Trump accused her of "disrespecting" the country for not singing the national anthem.

An already delicate situation threatened to become even more explosive after a video of Rapinoe saying "I'm not going to the f***ing White House" emerged last week.

The U.S. captain, who has scored all four her team's goals in the knockout matches so far, insisted she had not been distracted by Trump's attacks.

"I haven't been thinking about it too much, "she told ESPN.

"Obviously, I'm thinking about it a little bit—we're having to talk about it, whatever—but I've never been one to get in my [Twitter] mentions, so I'm not getting in them now.

"Stay out of it; just keep within the team environment and the bubble.

"I have so much support around me, from the media team helping me to just the group and my family and friends and everybody. So we just keep it chill."

England coach Phil Neville also praised Rapinoe for her performances in the tournament and for her role in promoting gender equality off it.

"She's a winner," he said.

"I like the individuality in her, both on and off the field, and I think she's a world-class footballer."

Ranked number three in the world, Phil Neville's team has largely flown under the radar, but 3-0 wins against Cameroon and Norway in the knockout stages enhanced its credentials.

However, the Lionesses will have the weight of history against them.

England has never reached the final of a Women's World Cup and it hasn't reached the final of a major tournament in the men's game since it claimed its only World Cup in 1966.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Tuesday.
