Liverpool’s Fara Williams scored her third World Cup penalty to secure victory for England in their defeat of European champions Germany in the match for third place.

The 1-0 scoreline mean the Lionesses finish third at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The bronze medal match was goalless after 90 minutes.

Just after the beginning of the second half of extra time, Williams slotted home a spot-kick.

England thus ended their Canada 2015 campaign on a high.

They banished the grief of their unlucky semi-final defeat by Japan.

It has been the first time England have beaten Germany, FIFA’s No1-ranked side, after 21 attempts.

They finish the World Cup as the best-placed European team.

By finishing third, Mark Sampson’s side has become the second-most successful England team of all-time, behind the famous 1966 squad.
