Women's World Cup: England v Japan Highlights

Japan just couldn't get anything going right in this match. The team known for it's set piece effectiveness dominated possession and shots, but it was England that scored when it mattered. A 16' minute goal by the youngest player on the English squad, Ellen White, opened the door for England with a nice flick on that lobbed the keeper and is one of the goals of the tourney. Yankey put the nail in the coffin for Japan with a late strike that guaranteed that the English would move on. They'll meet long time foes, France, in the knockout stages on July 9th.
