Finally, England fans have a team to be proud of at an international tournament!

England Women beat World Cup hosts Canada 2-1 on Saturday night, to reach the semi-finals of the tournament.

Jodie Taylor opened the scoring on 11 minutes. Three minutes later Lucia Bronze made it 2-0 to England.

Canada halved the deficit through Christine Sinclair on 42 minutes but could not find an equaliser in the second half.

Despite the fact the World Cup quarter-final was in the early hours of Sunday morning, over 1.6 million people tuned into the BBC in the UK.

England pair Casey Stoney and Jade Moore have given their immediate reaction to reaching the last four of the Women’s World Cup. See the video below.

The Lionesses will play holders Japan at midnight on Wednesday in what looks set to be a fascinating clash.

Former England Men’s captain David Beckham has also joined the celebrations, posting the picture and message below on Instagram.
