England Vs Norway: Lionesses Seal Convincing 3-0 Win To Progress To World Cup Semi-Finals

England marched into to the semi-finals of the Women's World Cup with a convincing 3-0 victory over Norway in Le Havre.

Phil Neville's side were off to a flying start inside the Stade Océane as Jill Scott fired the Lionesses into the lead in the third minute.

And Norway tried to break the deadlock in the first half, but those hopes were undone when an in-form Ellen White slotted the ball home from close range before half-time.

The Manchester City forward, 30, has been in sensational form in the World Cup and has taken her tally to five in the competition.

She is now the joint-top scorer alongside the USA's Alex Morgan and Australia's Sam Kerr.

England tightened their control over the match as defender Lucy Bronze picked up the ball at the edge of the penalty area and scored a screamer from 20 yards out.

But Norway continued to test England and captain Steph Houghton superbly came to the rescue of Karen Bardsley as she cleared the ball off the line in the 65th minute.

The England shot-stopper, 34, rose to the occasion minutes later when she made a big save to deny Norway's Utland from scoring.
