SheBelievesCup returns for its fourth year

Written by Sport

This February and March sees the return for the fourth year of the SheBelievesCup in the United States. The tournament stems from the US campaign #SheBelieves which aims to inspire young girls and women.

An exclusive invite only tournament sees four teams compete against each other, with the teams this year being the United States, England, Japan and Brazil. There is a difference in line-up from previous years, which has seen France and Germany compete. The US have won two tournaments, only France have won it otherwise.

England Lionesses have had a solid start to the tournament with a 2-1 over Brazil, who are placed tenth in the FIFA rankings. Ellen White and Beth Mead provided the goals for a confident England side who are hoping to reap success in the upcoming World Cup this year. England faced the USA on Saturday and take on Japan on Tuesday.

England will have to be wary of a strong US side, who are first in the FIFA rankings as well as reigning SheBelieves champions and World Cup champions. However, the dominant US team could only muster a draw against Japan, who are sat at eighth in the FIFA rankings. England should be feeling confident against the US.
