England Cruises Past Australia to Set Up Women’s World Cup Final with Spain

England has been on top of their game since the start of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and their latest win is the most epic one yet. They cruised past Australia on Wednesday and scored a confident 3-1 win to secure a spot in the final against Spain. England came into the semi-final determined to make it to the next round of the competition, and that’s exactly what they did. Ella Toone scored the opening goal for England in the first half, but they were on thin ice after Australia’s star striker Sam Kerr equalized the score. The Lioness managed to turn things around pretty quickly, thanks to Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo, who led the team to an epic 3-1 win. The team’s manager Sarina Wiegman also deserves the credit for leading them to their latest triumph, and she said that reaching the Women’s World Cup final feels like living a fairytale. "I can hardly describe how proud I am of the team. This team has adapted all the time. Before the tournament, during the tournament then this game again - how we came through and found a way to win again is so incredible," Wiegman told reporters. England will face Spain in the Women’s World Cup final in Sydney on Sunday, while the third-place play-off will be fought between Sweden and Australia one day earlier in Brisbane.
