Russo was brought off the bench with England already leading the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Beth Mead and Lucy Bronze.
The Manchester United striker made an immediate impact, almost setting up Lauren Hemp with her first contribution of the match.
And just minutes later she scored arguably the goal of the tournament.
After seeing her initial shot well saved by Hedvig Lindahl, Russo recollected the ball and back-heeled a superb finish through the Sweden goalkeeper's legs.
Fran Kirby added a fourth for England minutes later, forcing a mistake out of Lindahl with a chipped effort.
But it was Russo's goal, her fourth of the tournament, that had England fans talking on social media.

The match eventually finished 4-0 with England progressing to Sunday's final at Wembley.
They will face either Germany or France, who meet in the second semi-final on Wednesday.
