LIONESSES star Lucy Bronze’s brother turned the screw on USA legend Megan Rapinoe before their World Cup semi final.
USA captain Rapinoe was not in the starting XI for the three-time winners, who faced England in the last four.
Jorge Bronze, brother of England right-back Lucy, claimed winger Rapinoe did not start in France as she was “scared” of his sister.
Replying to the news USA’s skipper did not start, Jorge tweeted: “Scared of Lucy innit.”
Rapinoe had the last laugh as her side took a 1-0 lead thanks in part to Bronze’s poor defending after she failed to head away a cross that Christen Press nodded home.
Press came into the side in place of Rapinoe – who has been attacked by Donald Trump in the build-up.
Phil Neville’s side bounced back, however, thanks to a clinical finish from Ellen White.

It took the striker’s goal tally to six, becoming the tournament’s leading scorer.
Alex Mogan regained the USA’s lead with a deft header following a cross from Lindsey Horan – equalling White’s tally.
And she poked fun at England by pretending to drink a cup of tea in celebration as defending champs USA booked their place in the final.
