Lauren James opens the scoring for the Lionesses with a long-range curler against Denmark

Lauren James opens the scoring for the Lionesses with a long-range curler against Denmark

A fantastic start for the European Champions against Denmark.

Lauren James has scored a peach of an effort from outside the box to open the scoring for England against Denmark.

The Chelsea star kicked things off brilliantly for the Lionesses with one of the goals of the Women’s World Cup so far.

Picking the ball up outside the area she brilliantly turned one defender before curling one past Lene Christensen and into the corner of the net.

The Danish goalkeeper had no chance of keeping that one out.

The goal came just six minutes into the game and gave England a healthy start to their second group game in Australia.

With 40,000+ packing out Sydney Football Stadium in Australia, the 21-year-old proved that she’s a star.

The sister of Reece James, who had boldly claimed last year that she was 'technically' better than most Premier League players.

And she's more than proved it there.

The Chelsea star took part in a Twitter Q&A and fielded a host of questions - including picking between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Reece named Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior, AC Milan's Rafael Leao and Bayern Munich's Sadio Mane as the toughest opponents he has played against in his career.

He was asked about his sister Lauren, too, who also plays for Chelsea. She moved to the Stamford Bridge club from Manchester United last year.

And the England right-back is 'super proud' of his younger sibling, claiming she's 'technically better' than some Premier League players.

Asked how proud he's to see her play for the Blues, the 22-year-old replied: "Super proud of @laurenjamess22!! She inspires me everyday and will continue to.

"I believe she is the best women footballer in the world, and will be for the next 10-15 years, without doubt. She’s technically better than some Prem players," he added.
