The month gone by has been a busy one for England skipper Eoin Morgan. With his team playing the World Cup at home, there has been little time to think about anything beyond cricket.

However, being the sports buff that he is, Morgan has closely followed the FIFA Women’s World Cup, currently underway in France. Ahead of the England football team's semifinal clash against the United State of America, Morgan wished the Lionesses all success.

“Good luck. It’s been great to watch. I know a lot of the guys have followed it. It looks extremely hot out there (in France). But the very best of luck…” Morgan said on Tuesday.

Ranked third, England has never gone beyond the last-four at a World Cup, but Phil Neville-coached side is confident of making it to its first final.
