England Women's World Cup dreams come to an end after an own goal against Japan in the semi-final stage.
England Women were drawing 1-1 to Japan until Notts County central defender, Laura Bassett, scored a devastating own goal, handing Japan their ticket into the final against USA.
England had an excellent run during the tournament against the odds. The team coached by Mark Sampson, who previously coached Bristol Academy Women's Football Club, beat the host nation Canada in the quarter-finals.
Mark Sampson's team made history by being only the third England side to make it to the semi-finals of a World Cup.
England were defeated in their opening game of the tournament 1-0 against France but went on to win 2-1 against Mexico and Colombia in Stage One.
Stage Two saw England go down to Norway 2-1 but still managed to qualify for the quarter-final where they slashed Canada's hope of celebrating their 148th birthday by potentially lifting the World Cup Trophy.
Bristol Academy's Mary Earps, was called into the squad in the event of an injury to Karen Bardsley, Siobhan Chamberlain or Carly Telford. The 22-year-old has represented England at all youth levels from under 15s to under 23s – although she has yet to obtain her first senior cap.
