In the early hours of this morning, England’s Lionesses progressed to the semi-finals of the Women’s World Cup.
A 63rd-minute winner by England and Arsenal’s Alessia Russo secured their place in the semis alongside co-hosts Australia.
England had to come from one goal down against rivals Colombia after Leicy Santos scored in the 44th minute but the Lionesses drew level when Laura Hemp equalised just seven minutes later.
England’s victory over Colombia has sent the UK into Women’s World Cup fever.

Following England’s victory, their head coach Sarina Wiegman told ITV her squad showed resilience during the match and that she was proud of her team.
She said: “A very tough challenge but we didn’t expect anything else. We showed resilience, in the first half, we played very good.
“In moments we were sloppy on the ball and they were really dangerous on the counter. We conceded but we came back.
“I actually thought their keeper had the ball for our goal. Second half we pushed, we found a way to keep that score and win the final duals.
“I just hoped we would have finished the game off sooner because we could have.
“We know they are dangerous but again I am so proud of the team, we find a way to score to win the duels. If we had kept the ball a bit better, we could have won it a little earlier.”
