What happened last year?

Going into the final in Vancouver, Canada, both USA and Japan were unbeaten. Indeed, Japan had conceded only three goals in the entire tournament.

But then Carli Lloyd scored three times in 16 minutes to put the Americans 4-0 up against their shellshocked opponents and propelled the USA to their first World Cup in 16 years - their third title overall.

England claimed the Bronze Medal, beating Germany 1-0 in extra time, but were left ruing a huge missed opportunity to claim their first World Cup.

In the semi-finals, England were knocked out, 2-1, in heartbreaking fashion as Laura Bassett's injury-time own goal sent holders Japan into the final.

Bassett diverted a rare Japanese cross over goalkeeper Karen Bardsley's head in the 92nd minute, the ball hitting the crossbar and bouncing agonisingly over the line.

There was barely time for England to respond before the referee blew the final whistle.
