Stanway's stunner takes England to Semi-finals

The Lionesses of England have reached the semi-finals of  the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 after coming from behind to beat Spain 2-1 in extra time.

Georgia Stanway was the heroine of the match following her 96th minute stunner during extra-time, which won the match for the English team.

It was a moment of pure magic from Stanway as she fired them in front, unleashing a rocket from 25-yards high into the roof of Sandra Paños’ goal.

Spain were six minutes from qualifying for the semi-finals, when the Lionesses equalised and dragged the match into extra-time.
