UK: Fans watch England lionesses lose dramatic semi-final

England fans were left distraught after losing a dramatic Women's World Cup semi-final to holders the USA on Tuesday night. England Lionesses' supporters followed each twist and turn from a public viewing event in London's Battersea Park. Christian Press and Alex Morgan scored with headers either side of Ellen White's equaliser to put the USA 2-1 ahead after the first-half. A spirited England... Еще recovered after the break with White's second goal ruled out for being marginally offside on a video assistant referee (VAR) review. They had a golden chance to take the game to extra time after White went down in the area and her side were awarded a penalty by VAR in the 84th minute. England captain Steph Houghton however failed to convert — England's third penalty miss out of four in the tournament. Millie Bright was later sent off to compound a miserable night for the Lionesses. The USA will now progress to their third consecutive final in a quest for a record fourth title when they face either Sweden or European champions the Netherlands on Sunday. Those sides meet on Wednesday, with the losers playing in Sunday's third-place play-off.
