Phil Neville's Lionesses return to competitive action with a massive SheBelieves Cup game against the USWNT - watch the match no matter where you in the world with our USA vs England live stream guide.

The match marks the first time the two teams have met since last summer's World Cup semi-final. That match saw England narrowly lose 2-1 to eventual winners USA, with Ellen White agonisingly having a goal disallowed for offside by VAR - and Steph Houghton having a penalty saved.

USA vs England SheBelieves Cup - where and when

The USA vs England match takes place at is at the Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The game kicks off at 7pm ET local time (4pm PT), which means a midnight start for England fans looking to cheer on their team. If you're looking to tune in from Australia you'll have an early morning 11am AEDT start on Friday.

England appear to have suffered something of a World Cup hangover since then, with their form having tailed off following last year's tournament in France - a quick look at the form sheet shows just two wins from their last seven games.

With Ballon d'Or winner Megan Rapinoe as skipper, the USA remain the most formidable team in women's football, having won 25 of their last 28 games. In fact, the last goal conceded by the USWNT was Ellen White's equaliser for England in the World Cup semi-final.

In-form teenage Manchester City striker Lauren Hemp is set to start for England, however regular right-back Lucy Bronze and Arsenal forward Beth Mead are both ruled out through injury.
