#FIFAWWC: Own-Goal Sends England Packing As Japan Progress To Final

share on:

The England female national team have lost to Japan in the semi-finals of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

An own-goal from Laura Bassett in the last minute of injury time was England’s doom, with Japan now to face USA in the final.

Bassett had tried to clear the ball, but ended up slicing the ball off the cross bar and into her own net.

Aya Miyami had given Japan the lead earlier in the game, before Fara Williams equalized for the Lionesses, both goals coming from spotkicks.
