Georgia at the double
 Women's Football England International News - 20 Aug 2018
 
England have reached the semi finals of the FIFA U20 Women's World Cup for the first time after defeating Netherlands 2-1 in Vannes.
 
Mo Marley's side will now face Japan for a place in Friday's showpiece Final.
 
There was one change to the team that started Sunday's 6-1 rout of Mexico with Georgia Allen coming in for the suspended Mollie Rouse.
 
Netherlands enjoyed more of the ball early on, the only spell in which they did so, although it was against the run of play when they broke the deadlock after just 12 minutes.
 
A long ball forward by Danique Ypema sailed into the England box. Megan Finnigan watched it all the way and headed clear, despite appearing to be pushed when doing so, but the ball fell to the unmarked Pelova who coolly sidefooted the loose ball on the volley into the far corner from 18 yards.
 
England refused to panic and their composure was rewarded when Stanway turned the game on its head with two quickfire goals.
 
Her first came on 20 minutes when she slipped in behind the Dutch backline, moved into the area and curled home a left footed effort to restore parity.
 
Three minutes later, Stanway was played in by a sumptuous pass from Lauren Hemp and after her initial effort hit the foot of the post and the rebound was blocked, she finally smashed home the loose ball at the third attempt to put England in front.
 
England were very comfortable in the main, with Netherlands not offering much in the way of an attacking force but Sandy MacIver had to be alert when Naomi Pattiwael got in behind Mayumi Pacheco, and the England keeper was out quickly to thwart with a quick block.
 
Stanway came agonisingly close to grabbing her hat-trick on the hour mark. After being found by a Hemp cross, Stanway took the ball down and cracked a shot off the top of the crossbar.
 
She had another opportunity to add to her tally 10 minutes later but her whipped free kick bent narrowly wide of Lize Kop's right hand upright.
 
The woodwork got in England's way for a third time when Finnigan headed a corner onto the bar from close range.
 
Although England were unable to find a third goal their play had merited, they saw the game out comfortably and will now prepare for their semi final against the Japanese, who were 3-1 winners over Germany in the last eight.
 
England: Sandy MacIver, Anna Patten, Maz Pacheco, Grace Fisk, Megan Finnigan, Alessia Russo (sub Niamh Charles 84mins), Georgia Allen, Lauren Hemp, Georgia Stanway, Chloe Peplow, Chloe Kelly (sub Rinsola Babajide 90mins). Subs not used: Ali Johnson, Ellie Roebuck, Emily Ramsey, Esme Morgan, Taylor Hinds, Charlie Wellings, Zoe Cross.
