Women’s WC: Scotland Out; England top Group


Scotland crashed out of the Women’s World Cup after a dramatic 3-3 draw with Argentina as England finished top of Group D with a 2-0 win over Japan.

Shelley Kerr’s side surrendered a 3-0 lead in the final 20 minutes to draw 3-3 following late VAR drama in stoppage time, which saw Florencia Bonsegundo’s penalty saved by Lee Alexander – only for the referee to demand a retake – which was converted to send Scotland home.

England, who had already qualified for the last 16 and needed to avoid defeat to win the group, went ahead against Japan just before the quarter-hour mark through White’s cool finish following good work by Georgia Stanway.

White then slotted in her second, and third of the tournament, with six minutes of normal time remaining having been teed up by substitute Karen Carney.
