How Twitter reacted to England Women’s World Cup bronze medal

There couldn’t have been a better way to sum up England Women’s surprising run in the World Cup than their final match of the tournament against Germany in the third-place playoff.

Against the odds, Mark Sampson’s side overcame their rivals in extra-time, capping a heart-warming run in a tournament where few expected the side to get beyond the first knockout round.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result:

How tough a task the Lionesses faced was made clear prior to kick off.

After 107 minutes of goalless action, Fara Williams finally broke the deadlock with a 108th minute penalty.

After agonising own-goal that cost them their place in the World Cup final, the England side responded perfectly.

After receiving their medals, some players shared a few pictures with us.

And, after a thoroughly successful tournament, attention can now turn to winning the European Championships
