We tipped England Women to beat Canada in the last round and think they can repeat the job and book their place in the 2015 World Cup final.

Such a task looked beyond Mark Sampson’s team at the start of the tournament, with England losing 1-0 to France in their group opener although there has been no looking back since a 2-1 triumph against Mexico.

They have now won their past four matches by a 2-1 scoreline and seem a big price to get the better of a Japan team who have weaved their way to the last four thanks to a series of tight victories.

A tight 2-1 win over a Netherlands side who finished third in their group was followed by a 1-0 win against Australia, with Japan having kept things tight when winning their group.

England have grown as the tournament has gone along, with full-back Lucy Bronze having scored against Norway and Canada. Sampson will be looking for his team to enjoy a fast start and their position of underdogs can help them go very close here.
