England has qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final for the first time in their history after they beat Australia 3-1.

Ella Toone put the Euro 2022 winners ahead in the 36th minute, sending the ball far wide away from Mckenzie Arnold. 

This was the first goal Australia had conceded since their popular defeat against Nigeria. 

Australia saw their talismanic captain Sam Kerr return to the XI and she equalized for the co-hosts, firing an individual effort well over 25 yards.

Eight minutes later, Lauren Hemp put England ahead again after the Lionesses failed to clear the ball in their penalty box. 

Australia can secure a third-place finish when they face Sweden in the play-off on Saturday. 

England manager Sarina Wiegman had this to say about the win: 

“We achieved the final! It’s unbelievable, it feels like we won [the tournament] which we didn’t, we just won this game – in an incredible stadium, an away game, the way we played – it was a hard game, but we found a way to win again.”

“Australia has had an incredible tournament, they grew into the tournament. They had some setbacks, they had to win their last group-stage game and then they got better and better.”

“I just said to [assistant manager] Arjan, having the chance as a coach or a player to make it to two finals is really special. I never take anything for granted, but it’s like I’m living in a fairytale or something.”
