‘Nonsense game’ - But Neville insists England did not ‘disrespect’ Sweden match

Phil Neville talks to his side

A manager who has consistently maintained his new possession-heavy style is non-negotiable is adamant this philosophy will pay dividends but there was concern on several occasions when mix-ups between the goalkeeper Carly Telford and her backline almost gifted Sweden goals as England endeavoured to play out from defence. Asllani was on hand to tuck the ball home right footed, though Carly Telford would have been disappointed after letting the ball squirm past her grasp.

Ellen White has been the star of the show for England in France this summer, scoring six goals and turning herself into something of an icon with that celebration.

She is the second-most capped player for England, behind only Fara Williams who has played 170 times for the Lionesses. Well done Sweden, but it's a nonsense game.

White, Taylor, Parris, Kirby, Mead, Duggan.

Sweden won the bronze medal with a 2-1 victory, getting goals from Kosovare Asllani (11th minute) and Sofia Jakobsson (22nd minute) before withstanding England's attack in the final minutes to prevent an equalizing goal. The Lionesses' left back and left centreback were their most vulnerable positions in the first half.

"A player that was two days away from kicking her last ball actually still went down to the pitch to practise her skill before everybody else got there".

This was Fran Kirby's game, and some combination of Phil Neville's tactics and her teammate's performance negated her impact. No serious injury has been detected but if concussion is an issue she won't play. But once the ball came to her, they did not adjust to what was coming back to them from her. "We've got to make sure that next time we do better".

Barcelona president: 'We know that Neymar wants to leave PSG'
The youngster has been at The Hawthorns since he was six, and was said to be a shoe-in for progression to the first-team. According to him, he considered Barcelona's Ousmane Dembélé "better than Neymar".

Her goal changed the course of the game and made it a contest.

"I've given my heart and soul to club and country, there's nothing more I can physically or mentally give".

Defeat for England consigned them to fourth place, one spot lower than their result at the 2015 World Cup in Canada. Ellen White had a terrific performance in the semis, and look for her to be extraordinary again against the Swedes. Chelsea and England will miss her, and hopefully one of those two will bring her back in a coaching or technical role.

Sweden were already 2-0 up after 22 minutes into the match, England pulled one back and had one goal disallowed in the first half.

The Netherlands top scorer is Vivianne Miedema with three goals. Her speed down the right tormented England's defenders, and within minutes of switching to the left she curled in the winning golazo.

Saturday's game will see one of England's longest-serving players make her last global appearance as Karen Carney bows out after a remarkable career for club and country.
