England Make History at the World Cup

23rd June 2015


eng-er-land.pngCongratulations go to the women’s England football team for beating Norway last night in Ottawa 2-1 and by doing so make history by being the first English women’s side to make it to the quarter finals in the competition.

With goals coming in the second half, the first by Norway’s Solveig Gulbrandsen was followed quickly by captain, Steph Houghton to level the match. The winner came from a stunning 75th minute drive from Lucy Bronze ensuring the team struck gold and book their ticket west to Vancouver for the next stage.

It means however, that England now face hosts Canada this Saturday (00:30 BST on Sunday) who will have the home advantage. However, with this win behind them England go into the match galvanised overcoming a somewhat shaky start to the World Cup challenge.

Manager Chris Sampson told the BBC “This group of 23 players has shown resilience, character and discipline to come back and win that match. We'll take huge confidence from that victory."
