Womens World Cup: USA qualified to Final After wining over England


Steph Houghton missed a questionable late punishment as title protector United States beat England 2-1 to achieve a third progressive Women's World Cup last, in spite of the nonappearance of rousing co-commander Megan Rapinoe.
The Lionesses had the chance to in any event power extra-time with a 84th-minute spot-kick, however Houghton's poor exertion was spared and Millie Bright observed red late on as USA clutched guarantee its title protection goes to the last stage.
Rapinoe's nonappearance, said to be because of a hamstring issue, gave a pre-coordinate stun, however Christian Press had a quick effect as her substitution when heading in the opener, before Ellen White's equalizer was counteracted by Morgan gesturing in simply past the half-hour mark on her birthday.
Britain delivered a decent reaction in the subsequent half and White had a subsequent objective precluded for straying barely offside, before Alyssa Naeher effectively spared Houghton's punishment and a baffled Bright earned a subsequent booking, giving a frustrating end to Phil Neville's side.
A short of breath begin brought about USA opening the scoring right on time, with Press meeting Kelley O'Hara's profound cross with a fine header into the upper left corner.
However, England – which had looked overpowered – leveled nine minutes after the fact, White expertly controlling Beth Mead's left-wing cross into the upper right corner with a first-time exertion.
Morgan guaranteed USA went into the break ahead, nonetheless, hustling on to Lindsey Horan's hurled pass and looking a header past Carly Telford, before seeming to taunt England in her festival, as she professed to taste from some tea.
The Lionesses improved after the break and thought they had the equalizer a little ways from time as White changed over after Jill Scott's flawless flicked pass, yet a VAR survey regarded the striker to have been quite recently offside.
Another VAR referral a little ways from time gave England a punishment after Becky Sauerbrunn was considered to have fouled White with the objective at her kindness, yet Houghton's weak exertion, taken an entire three minutes after the fact, was effectively spared.
Brilliant at that point demonstrated her inconvenience with a solid handle on Morgan that earned her a subsequent yellow card, and USA thusly completed the activity.
