England have secured their place in the semi-finals of the Women’s World Cup with a comprehensive victory over Norway.

The Lionesses were hugely impressive as goals from Jill Scott, Ellen White and Lucy Bronze secured a 3-0 win over the Scandinavian side.

David Beckham and his seven-year-old daughter Harper were at the Oceane stadium in Le Havre, northwest France, to watch the match as Phil Neville’s team took an early lead.

Scott’s shot hit the back of the net within three minutes as she scored the fastest goal of the tournament so far.

White, England’s all-time top scorer at the Women’s World Cup, followed up with the Lionesses’ second goal five minutes before half time.

And Bronze scored a screamer from the edge of the box in the second half to ensure a late penalty miss by England could not stop them progressing in the tournament.

England will now face either tournament hosts France or favourites USA for a place in the final.
