England won 3-1 against co-hosts Australia in the semi-final match of the FIFA Women’s World Cup today (August 16) and will now progress to the final on Sunday.

England’s first goal came from Ella Toone who gave Australia goalkeeper Mackenzie Arnold no chance with a strike into the top right corner.

Australia then went on to equalise with a goal from Sam Kerr before Lauren Hemp scored for England.

Alessia Russo also joined the score sheet, scoring England's third of the match.

Australia will face Sweden to decide which team finishes in third place – this match will take place on Saturday, August 19.

Who will England face in the final of the Women’s World Cup?

England will face Spain in the final of the competition on Sunday, August 20 at 11am.

The match will take place in Sydney at Stadium Australia.

Spain secured their spot in the final after they won 2-1 against Sweden on Tuesday, August 15.

Will Lauren James be available to play in the final?

England forward Lauren James missed two games after she was sent off in the FIFA Women’s World Cup game against Nigeria.

The 21-year-old was shown a red card when she stood on defender Michelle Alozie.

As a result, she missed England’s quarter-final match against Colombia and the semi-final match against Australia.

England have progressed to the final and having served her two-match ban, James will become available for the match.
