  • End of 2nd Half
90+6' 

FULL TIME. England are through. Their first ever competitive victory over France, and they are through to a semi-final over the Netherlands. A well earned victory, full of determination, and ruthlessness in front of goal.

90+5'

Le Bihan meets a cross from the right, heads down towards goal, but Chamberlain is on hand to stop it with a minute remaining.

90+3' 

A skew-wiff backpass forces a corner on the right. There are three minutes left.

90+1' 

There will be six minutes of added time, mainly because of the Bardsley injury earlier today.

Lavogetz curls in a cross, it drops to Georges, then Henry, and both of their shots are blocked by a sea of English bodies.

77' 

Chamberlain flaps at a cross from the right. It comes out to Thomis, and she arcs a volley just wide of the post.

76' 

Nobbs is in space on the right, found by a Kirby pass. She drills in a cross, but it's hit far too fiercely, and is out of play.

Bardsley is off after her injury.

71' 

A lightnight run from Thomis into the box, around a defender, and her low cross is wayward and cleared.

69' 

Bronze takes a throw-in, and then is forced back 30 yards under pressure and almost loses the ball with a backpass. England are rattled despite having the lead.

68' 

Bardsley is down, wincing in pain after the challenge from earlier to claim the cross.

67' 

Le Sommer flicks on a free kick, and Bronze is on hand to force it away.

Thomis replaces Diani.

64'

Bardsley fail to get to a cross, England can't get rid of it with some failed clearances, and Delie then fires in at the near post, where Bardsley makes a far better attempt at a save.

63'

A corner from the left from Abily, and England struggle to get it clear. It comes out to Diani, and Bronze has to head it off the line.

GOAL! England 1-0 France. Taylor scores - Bronze breaks down the middle, and just as she's about to be closed down, she measures a pass right for Taylor, and she drills a shot past the 'keeper.

57' 

France attack down the left, but Houghton boots a cross away.

54'

Le Sommer eaps to meet a cross at the back post. She gets a solid connection, glancing it a yard wide of the post.

53' 

A fairly even start to the second half. No great guile in the approach play yet from England.

49' 

Another foul on the left, from Moore, this time near the halfway line. It's clipped into the box, and headed out.

47' 

Kirby gives away a foul high up on the left wing, and the pressure is off France for a few seconds, at least.

  • 2nd Half
46' 

We go again.

  • End of 1st Half
45' 

That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.

43' 

An extended spell of possession for France sees England chase them across the park, before eventually winning it back in midfield. Bronze finds Nobbs in a dangerous position in the box, and she's promptly tackled.

40' 

Moore is penalised for shoving Le Sommer on the wing. The referee has a word, but there's no card.

38'

Delie has few options as she skirts the edge of the box. She attempts to curl a shot into the far post, but Bardsley can stoop to catch it.

36' 

Le Sommer aims a fierce cross at Delie at the back post, but Houghton is on hand to head it away. A crucial intervention.

34' 

Free kick for France. It's headed on into the box, but Bardsley claims it without any bother.

32' 

Kriby almost releases White behind the defence, but a last-ditch tackle takes the ball away from her and from danger.

29' 

Another long ball over the top from France, and another England goal kick.

26' 

England break with Nobbs, and she flicks the ball on to Taylor for her to chase. She just reaches it on the byline, kills it with the sole of her foot, but it's just over the line.

25' 

25 minutes gone, with only a couple of chances. It's a pretty tight match so far, with neither side especially dominant.

21'

Bright runs off to the far post to meet a set piece, and she heads down firmly to send an effort just wide of the bottom corner.

19' 

Taylor gives Nobbs a ball to chase on the right. Eventually it comes to Bronze on the right, she skips into the box and just before she can release it or shoot, she's tackled.

16' 

Some sustained French pressure ends when Houara flings in a cross from the right which drifts behind for a goal kick.

15' 

Apparently, England's gameplan is to score early on. France have done OK so far on that front, with England not especially threatening.

12'

Delie gets in behind the defence on the left, but her shot is dragged wide of the far post.

11' 

Kirby looks like she might have chance to get past the French backline, but the ball is intercepted and then she's flagged offside.

10' 

England have a throw on the left for Stokes, high up the pitch. She has a chance to cross, hits towards the back post, and Bouhaddi claims.

5' 

Scott flicks a pass out wide for Nobbs to chase, but it's overhit and out of play.

4' 

Le Sommer has the chance to cross, but it's headed out for a throw on the right wing.

3' 

Nobbs clips in a cross for Taylor, but France's 'keeper ran out to claim.

2' 

Bouhaddi dives onto a cross with Bright lurking for any spillages.

1' 

The match gets underway.

France are perhaps the favourites for the competition, but England are no fools. They'll have to be at their best in this match to progress, but a win woudn't be a huge upset.
