England 2-1 Spain: Stanway stunner takes tenacious hosts through

Baku, July 21, AZERTAC

England came from behind to beat Spain and reach the semi-finals of UEFA Women's EURO 2022 thanks to Georgia Stanway's stunning extra-time strike, Ella Toone having equalised late in normal time just as it looked as if an Esther González goal would be enough to end the hosts' hopes, according to the official website of UEFA.

Stanway netted from distance in extra-time to put the hosts up 2-1 in Brighton, and they held off their rivals to advance to the semi-final.

England have reached the Women's EURO semi-finals for the second edition in succession and the sixth overall.

England have now scored 16 goals at Women's EURO 2022, the second most in tournament history behind Germany's 2009 total of 21.

González's goal was the first England had conceded at this tournament.

The crowd of 28,994 was a Women's EURO quarter-final record and the fifth highest attendance in tournament history.
