Wow! Fran Kirby pots one for England at 31'. 2-1 and the Lionesses (yes, that's what they call them since England's men are the Lions) are still in it.

GOAL! English Golden Boot contender Ellen White ties it at 2. That makes 7 goals for her this tournament.

And the dreaded replay strikes again. White's goal is disallowed and it's back to 2-1 Sweden. That's two matches in a row where England has lost a tying goal to VAR.

I hope they look at how VAR (Video Assisted Refereeing) is used before the next World Cup (2022 Men's World Cup in Qatar) The amount of grief there has been over it in this one has been crazy.

And it ends as expected, with the USA taking home the win. 2-0 US over the Netherlands.

So the final standings are:

USA
Netherlands
Sweden
England

By all accounts, it was a good tournament, even with the ref'ing issues (and what soccer tournament doesn't have those?).
