Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay bring you an exclusive preview podcast ahead of England’s World Cup semi-final against reigning champions Japan. We look at how Mark Sampson might line the team up, what they need to watch out for, and even a cheeky prediction! We hear from Kelly Smith on who’s impressed her so far for England and the challenge she thinks Japan will face, and Casey Stoney gives us an insight into how the team have been preparing for the game and how they’re feeling ahead of their first semi-final in a big tournament in 25 years.
