Where to watch the Women's World Cup

The England Lionesses are one step closer to lifting the Women’s World Cup trophy. We’ve rounded up seven of the coolest bars in the UK where you can watch their semi-finals game against USA. 

England’s hopes for the Lionesses is at its peak. After their mighty win against Norway, the squad will take on USA in a highly-anticipated semi-finals game on Tuesday (2 July). 

Speaking ahead of the match, Lioness Lucy Bronze told The Telegraph: “We’ve had back-to-back semi-finals, which is an amazing feat for this team and an amazing achievement to be able to do it on a consistent basis, but there is still that last step.”

She continued: “We’ve still got that hunger, and especially now. We’ve more hunger than all the other teams because we have never reached the final. Of the four teams that are left we are the only one not to reach a final – the Olympics, the World Cup, the European Championships – these other three teams have reached finals in recent years.”
