FIFA WORLD CUP(TM) on FOX Executive Producer David Neal announces the on-air broadcasters for the semifinal, third-place and championship matches:

"It's been a spectacular nearly month-long experience here in Vancouver already, and we can't wait for the four remaining games. One of the things I'm really excited about is the depth we've had in our on-air groups, and much like the teams, they've all been trying to get to those prized final assignments. I'm really happy today to announce that over four remaining games, we've got three different broadcast teams who have earned a shot in those positions.

"Starting with tomorrow in the semifinal, U.S. and Germany - will be JP Dellacamera, TonyDiCicco, Cat Whitehill and Jenny Taft with their producer Shaw Brown. The second semi on July 1, England vs. Japan, will be Jenn Hildreth and Kyndra de St. Aubin joined on the sideline by Julie Stewart-Binks and their producer Carlos DeMolina. The third-place game on July 4 will be Justin Kutcher, Aly Wagner, Julie Stewart-Binks and their producer Dan Hyatt, and then the final here in Vancouver on July 5 will be JP, Tony, Cat and Jenny.

"It's a really strong team of on-air talent that we have, and I know they're all as eager as we are to get to these final four games."

Former USWNT player Heather Mitts says the midfield will be important for the U.S. against Germany: "[The U.S.] played a lot better in the midfield with Morgan Brian sitting [back] and allowing Carli Lloyd to be more offensive-minded. It's really tough when you have two offensive-minded midfielders in there and they're picking and choosing their times to either attack or sit back. It's better when you have someone that's truly able to sit there and be that defensive presence and allow them to just worry about the offense. Against Germany, the midfield is going to be huge."

Former USWNT coach Tony DiCicco says U.S. coach Jill Ellis has a difficult decision to make with her starting midfielders: "My feeling is Megan Rapinoe will be back in the lineup. It's a more difficult decision between Lauren Holiday and Morgan Brian. I thought Morgan Brian played very well against China. She got herself in great position to receive passes and keep possession."

DiCicco shares what his game plan would be for the U.S. against Germany: "I would look to press them high, create some mistakes and take them off their game. Right now, my biggest concern for the USA is that they're playing great defense, especially the back five including Hope Solo, but we're not scoring a lot of goals. The USA has to score two goals to win this game."

Mitts agrees, and says the U.S. needs to pick its spots with the press: "We do need a high press and we need to pick and choose our moments to do it. I don't think we can high press them for 90 minutes, just because they're too good. We're going to have to score more than one goal in order to beat them because they are so dangerous on the attack. We're bound to see at least one goal from Germany. Scoring has been our issue recently, and we're going to be able to depend on the back four and Hope Solo, so it's really up to our offense to create chances. It's the semifinals. You have to take your chances."
