FIFA Women's World Cup:White nets double as England top Group D

White nets double as England top Group D
England maintained their perfect women’s World Cup Group D record when Ellen White’s double gave them a 2-0 win over Japan on Wednesday.

White struck either side of the interval as the Lionesses, who had already qualified for the last 16, topped the pool with nine points, five ahead of second-placed Japan.

Scotland threw away a two-goal lead in the other group game as they were held 3-3 by Argentina to be knocked out of the tournament.

England coach Phil Neville made eight changes to the team who beat Argentina but it did not cause too much disruption as they dominated a Japan side lacking a cutting edge in attack.
