    Four years ago, England lost in injury-time of the World Cup semi-final after Laura Bassett's own goal gave Japan victory in Canada.

    BBC One

    Wherever you are in the UK, you can watch tonight's match live on BBC One. As always, if you can't get to a TV - at home or in the pub - you can tune in on the BBC iPlayer or by clicking the icon at the top of this page. Build-up kicks off at 19:30 BST.

  3. The final four

    England v USA (20:00 BST)

    The winner of tonight's match will take on the Netherlands or Sweden in Sunday's final. Whoever loses will be in Saturday's match, fighting for a bronze medal.

    I know which one I'd rather be playing in.

    This is HUGE.

    England have to beat rivals the USA for the first time ever in the competition. This is a USA team who have never finished lower than third at a World Cup.

    They have also lost just one of their last five matches against England.

    After losing to Japan in the semi-finals in 2015, England went on to beat Germany in the third-place play-off to secure the team's best-ever finish.

    They then made the last four at Euro 2017 - losing to hosts and eventual champions the Netherlands - before pipping the USA to their first ever SheBelieves Cup trophy in March.

    Surprisingly, these two teams have only faced each other once before in the World Cup.

    That was way back in 2007 when the USA won 3-0 in the quarter-finals.

    So here we are in Lyon. From 24 teams, down to the final four.

    England and the USA are 90 minutes away (plus potential extra-time and a penalty shootout) from the World Cup final.

    It's the business end. Who's excited?

    Another World Cup semi-final... England are starting to make a habit of it!

    It's their second in a row and their third successive semi-final in a major tournament.

    It ended in heartbreak four years ago when a late own goal gave Japan victory over England in Canada.

    But now the Lionesses are a different animal. Can they go one step further this time?

    They face the best of the best. The world number one. The defending champions. The three-time champions.

    The USA.
