- England 2-1 USA (Hemp 10, Stanway 33pen; Smith 28)
- US equaliser ruled offside after VAR check in eventful first half
On a night dominated by a moving show of unity, the Lionesses edged the USA, winning a thrillingly open battle between the European champions and world champions 2-1 to maintain Sarina Wiegman’s unbeaten run as England manager.
England’s win over the World Cup holders was their first since an 89th-minute goal from Ellen White gave them victory in the 2017 SheBelieves Cup, and it was only their third ever win against the Americans in 19 games. The gap, though, is closer than ever, with the Football Association investing heavily from top to bottom in a bid to bridge it.
