Fisk to Play for Third Place on Friday with England
Brittany, France – Junior Grace Fisk, of the University of South Carolina, will play for her native country of England to the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup third place match this Friday. England dropped their semifinal match on Monday morning to Japan, 2-0.
England’s defense, which Fisk is a captain for, has allowed six goals in five games. They will play the loser of France and Spain on Friday.
With the final match of the tournament set for Friday, Fisk will miss the Clemson game this Thursday at home. Along with Fisk, Clemson’s goalkeeper Sandy Maciver, will miss the contest as she is also competing with England.
“We enjoy each other’s company,” said Fisk with an interview. “We’re a tight knit team. I think that really helps when you are on the pitch because obviously you want to play well with your team, you want to play well with your friends. That helps, and we’re are just enjoying this experience together.”
England has been one of the most consistent teams throughout the tournament that started back on August 5 in the group stage. England won their group with seven points and went on to defeat the Netherlands 2-1 in the quarterfinal before taking down Japan.
South Carolina and Clemson will face off on Thursday on the SEC Network. The game will kick off at 7:00 p.m. ET.
