The Lionesses then suffered a set back shortly after half time as Australia’s Sam Kerr scored an equaliser in the 63rd minute.

But England, as they so often do, found a way back into the game when Lauren Hemp showed her class to make it 2-1 in the 71st minute before Alessia Russo wrapped up the game in the 86th minute to make it 3-1.

The Lionesses will face Spain in the final on Sunday 20 August (11am).
