A record crowd of 27,000 is expected at the FC Twente stadium tonight, as England take on Euro 2017 hosts the Netherlands in a sold-out semi-final, while at home millions more will be tuning in to see the Lionesses in action - 3.3 million watched their quarter-final win over France.

In the United Kingdom, for example, the peak audience of 3.3 million who saw England beat France on Channel 4 in Sunday's quarter-final was a British record for women's football.

"She will remain with the team in the Netherlands as they prepare to face the host nation in the semi-final in Enschede on Thursday". Shouldn't be long. Still 0-0 in the other semi-final.

But after France had spurned some early chances, Arsenal striker Jodie Taylor broke the deadlock on the hour with her fifth goal of the tournament. But beating Canada in Vancouver was a great experience for us and we've also beaten the United States in NY [at this year's She Believes Cup].

"Well, listen, us strikers, I think goalkeepers and centre-forwards are probably the most unique players", said Owen in an interview to promote McDonald's sponsorship of Euro 2017.

"We have to be well organised first, and we have to cooperate as a team, and as we do, when we keep possession of the ball, then we can start attacking".

"Again tomorrow we would like to show everybody who we are, fight in the match and play pretty football if possible".

6 of Mark Sampson's side are former Sunderland Ladies players including the Captain Steph Houghton.

"With the tournament in their own country, the crowd will be full of Dutch people and they will be all against us but we've been through experiences where we have been the underdog".

The tournament's leading scorer, Taylor will be a cause for concern for the hosts, having scored five goals in just three games after sitting out the last group game against Portugal.

"Times change for them and also for us, so it's not deja-vu", said Van Veenendaal.
