England Women beat France for the first time since 1974 to reach the semi-finals of the 2017 European Championships.

Jodie Taylor’s second-half strike proved enough for Mark Sampson’s side, who will now face hosts Netherlands in the final four.

The other semi-final clash will see Denmark, who beat holders and favourites Germany, take on Austria after they saw off Spain on penalties.

Taylor’s fifth goal of the tournament gave England the lead and, despite some late pressure, France were unable to find an equaliser.
