England's Ellen White In Tears As She Gives Emotional Interview After USA Loss

England Women's striker Ellen White couldn't keep the tears in after Phil Neville's side were beaten 2-1 by the USA in the semi-final in Lyon.

On her 30th birthday, Alex Morgan scored the winning goal in the 31st minute for the reigning champions, who have now lost just once in their last 44 games.

White was on the scoresheet to cancel out Christen Press' early opener with her sixth goal of the tournament and had a goal ruled out for offside by VAR in the second half - as well as being fouled for a penalty that was then missed by skipper Steph Houghton after a VAR check went in England's favour.

And it was all too much for the Manchester City striker when she was called upon for an interview with the BBC. She immediately said, "I'm going to cry" before being advised by the reporter to take a deep breath so that she could compose herself and do the interview.

The joint top-scorer of the tournament has been in utterly sensational form this tournament, setting a new record for scoring in five straight World Cup games for England.

And seeing her in such an emotional state post-match really gave all the feels to viewers watching at home.

Regardless of tonight's result, White and the rest of the England squad should be incredibly proud of their efforts and the way in which they have inspired the young girls of tomorrow.

The Lionesses still have the chance to finish the tournament with a victory in the third place play-off on Saturday. They will play whoever loses in tomorrow night's second semi-final between Netherlands and Sweden.
