Lucy Bronze strike caps win over Norway as England reach semi-finals
England brushed Norway aside with a largely dominant display in Le Havre to set up a Women’s World Cup semi-final against either the hosts, France, or the defending champions, USA.
Jill Scott’s goal set the tone just three minutes in and Ellen White doubled England’s lead five minutes before half-time having earlier hit the post. Lucy Bronze’s ferocious finish following a free-kick made it three just before the hour and left Norway with a mountain to climb. England could even afford for Nikita Parris to have a penalty saved.
