- The United States will face England in the semi-final of the World Cup on Tuesday
- Defender Ali Krieger has claimed to be the best team in the world
- Jill Ellis stated the comment was a reflection of their confidence, not arrogance
Jill Ellis, manager of the United States, insists that her team is not arrogant and is preparing for the confrontation with England in the semifinals of the Women's World Cup on Tuesday.
Defender Ali Krieger said earlier this month that the in-depth strength available to Ellis means that the United States actually has the best team in the world and also the second best team.
Earlier at a press conference before the game, Ellis said: “It's really a note about ourselves, it's really a note about how she (Krieger) feels because she plays in two different teams and she has the right to say if that's how she feels.

Defender Ali Krieger claimed that the US has the best team and second best team in the world
& # 39; It is important that our team is confident, I don't think this is an arrogant team. I think this team knows they have to earn everything, that there are tough opponents in front of us and that we deserve every right to progress in this tournament. & # 39;
Ellis was not surprised to see how England made progress under manager Phil Neville, who played part of his career for Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester United.
& # 39; Many of us are products from our environment and he had a pretty good mentor there, & # 39; Ellis added.
& # 39; I certainly think the team has made progress, you can see that they have bought what they want them to do, you can see that they are playing hard, so I think he did very well. & # 39 ;
