  • End of 2nd Half
90+5' 

SWEDEN HAVE WON IT! England finish the World Cup with fourth place. They have done well to reach this stage, but they do still lack a ruthlessness that the top sides above them can exploit. There is room to improve, but much to be proud of.

90+3' 

Greenwood runs onto a cross that drifts to the back post, and she slices it miles wide when it needed to be put back towards goal. A minute left.

90+2'

At the other end, Telford has to beat away a shot from Jakobsson as she counters and has a chance to make victory certain. The action is picking up.

90+1'

Carney bobbles a shot from distance at goal in the first of four minutes of added time indicated.

90'

Bronze watches the ball drop onto her foot in the box, and she lashes a shot at goal past the 'keeper, only to see Fischer head off the line!

There is a VAR check for a potential handball from White.

England move the ball swiftly in the box, working an opening for White, one-on-one with the 'keeper and she punts it wide. It strikes a defender and is cleared, but that was a dreadful waste.

7'

The match gets underway.

15:55 

The Swedes are looking to get over their disappointment after losing to the Netherlands in the other semi-final. They look an impressive side, so England are certainly not clear favourites today.

10 minutes until kick-off, so tweet me with your predicitons.

A not ideal start for the fans in the ground.

This game will be a chance for the England side to leave on a high. It will be tough, perhaps, to motivate themselves after blowing a decent opportunity against the US earlier in the week, but Sweden are eminently beatable.
