Following England’s win over Australia in the Women’s World Cup semi-final match today (August 17), England boss Sarina Wiegman has questioned whether she is “in a fairytale”.

Ella Toone, Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo were on the score sheet for England in their 3-1 win over Australia.

Australia captain Sam Kerr was the only goalscorer for the Matildas.

Despite losing against England, Australia will play against Sweden in a match to determine who will be awarded third place in the competition.

England knock Australia out of the Women's World Cup with 3-1 victory in semi-final

England boss Sarina Wiegman will now appear in a fourth successive final as a head coach after winning the 2017 Women’s Euros with the Netherlands, who she also managed in the World Cup final defeat to the United States two years later, before she led England to European glory last summer.

After the semi-final victory, Wiegman told BBC One: “We achieved the final and it’s unbelievable, it feels like we’ve won it.

“But we won this game, it’s an incredible stadium, an away game, of course it was a hard game but again we found a way to win.

“We scored three goals, in this team that ruthlessness, whether it’s up front or in defence we really want to keep the ball out of the net, we really want to win and we stick together. We stick to the plan and it worked again.”

She added: “The chance as a coach you make it to two finals is really special, I never take anything for granted but I’m like – am I in a fairytale or something?”

When is the final of the Women’s World Cup?

England will play against Spain in the final of the competition.

The match will take place in Sydney at Stadium Australia on Sunday, August 20 at 11am.
