TOGETHER: England unite in a huddle after the game, in a symbol of solidarity

TOGETHER: England unite in a huddle after the game, in a symbol of solidarity

The Lionesses' pride.

England suffered World Cup semi-final heartbreak once more, falling to a 2-1 defeat to reigning Champions the USA, courtesy of first-half Christen Press and Alex Morgan strikes.

Top scorer Ellen White did find the net for Phil Neville's side, lifting her tally to six for the tournament - a joint best with Morgan - but it would not prove to be the Lionesses' night, with another White goal chalked off by VAR, a saved Steph Houghton penalty and a Millie Bright red card.

Still, despite the agony, England portrayed a real act of togetherness and solidarity, uniting for a post-match huddle after their manager's teamtalk.

An heart-warming sight, symbolising the strength, courage and impact our Lionesses have generated in France, as they continue to push boundaries, challenge perceptions and inspire a nation of all generations back home.
