Lionesses’ sweet song and dance of victory

England’s pride of Lionesses jumped for joy and celebrated their stunning semi-final victory with a jubilant dressing room song and dance.

Despite fizzing with excitement, they were leaving nothing to chance and only toasted their 1-3 win over Australia with soft drinks and water.

Because our World Cup wonder-women know there’s still one more very big match to come.

But it couldn’t stop a bit of a party kicking off.

Goalkeeper Mary Earp – who so far in the tournament has let in just three goals in open play – saved some of her best moves for the celebrations, after manager Sarina Wiegman had congratulated the team.

Midfielder Georgia Stanway was in the thick of things, jiving with reserve keeper Ellie Roebuck and punching the air as she posed for a selfie with some of her grinning teammates.

Forward Rachel Daly and defender Esme Morgan put their arms around each other as they roared out victory songs.

The gutsy Lionesses held their nerve in front of an 80,000- strong, mainly home crowd, at Stadium Australia in Sydney.

Ella Toone scored England’s first-half opener before Matildas striker Sam Kerr equalised in the 63rd minute. But player of the match Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo slotted two more home to keep the nation’s dreams alive.

The Lionesses now face Spain in the World Cup Final at 11am on Sunday.
