England now go into the third-place play-off this Saturday where they will face the loser of the Netherlands or Sweden semi-final.

Former City winger Nikita Parris tweeted: “Gutted is an understatement. We gave everything but it wasn’t to be. Small margins make the difference and unfortunately they cost us on the night. I can’t express enough how amazing all your support has been, it really does mean a lot...thank you.”
