England 1-0 France: Highlights

England secure a place in the Semi-Finals of Euro 2017!

England defeated France for the first time in 43 years as the Lionesses booked their place in the semi-finals of Euro 2017.  

Jodie Taylor hit the only goal of the game midway through the second half to take her tournament tally to five – and secure a last-four clash with host nation Netherlands on Thursday.

It was a tight and tense affair in Deventer, and although France had chances to get back into the game, Mark Sampson’s side held on gamely for their first Euro semi-final since 2009.

Two sour points for England were the yellow card picked up by Jill Scott, which means she will miss Thursday’s match, and the injury to goalkeeper Karen Bardsley in the second half.

The other semi-final will be contested by Denmark, shock victors over eight-time winners Germany, and debutants Austria.
