Allianz Riviera, Nice
22 June

Norway led from the 31st minute but Australia refused to lie down and swarmed forward in search of the equaliser. This came in extraordinary fashion in the 83rd minute when Kellond-Knight's inswinging corner evaded everyone as it flew across the face of the goal before nestling inside the far post. After 30 minutes of extra-time the match came down to penalties and while the Norwegians kept their cool, Australia missed with their first two kicks.

While England played their patient passing game, moving forward in neat little triangles, Cameroon were fiercely committed and too often ill-disciplined. After Ellen White scored in added time just before the break she was initially flagged for offside but VAR confirmed the goal was good. The Cameroon players completely lost their composure and for a while it appeared they were refusing to continue. There were further vigorous protests when Cameroon had a goal ruled out (correctly) for offside. Alex Greenwood swept home a low corner (58') to make the game safe but Cameroon continued to protest, commit niggling fouls and attempt to intimidate the match officials. In the end, the Chinese referee Qin Liang opted for the diplomatic approach rather than strictly enforcing the rules to prevent even more disgraceful scenes.

Seven minutes after the break France did take the lead, Gauvin powering home Diani's low cross which Barbara, the Brazilian 'keeper. failed to cut out. Cristiani hit the bar before Thaisa drove the ball in for the equalser (64'). In extra-time Amandine Henry scored the winner with Barbara again at fault.

Lieke Martens put the Oranje ahead in the 17th minute, deftly backheeling Spitse's corner in off the far post but Japan struck back just before half-time, Sugasawa playing the ball between two defenders to Hasegawa who lofted it past the goalkeeper. Japan had the better of the second half and were unlucky not to score when Sugita struck the bar. A fierce shot by Momiki was saved superbly by Van Veenendal. In the final moments Miedema shot towards goal and the ball struck Kumagai's arm. Under the new interpretation of the hand ball rule the referee awarded a penalty which Martens converted.

Stade Océane, Le Havre

England proved more than equal to the stiffest test of the competition so far. Jill Scott got them off to the perfect start, Bronze accelerating down the right to the goal line and cutting the ball back to White who misjudged her strike before the ball ran on to Scott who improvised a swipe to send it in off the far post. White extended the lead (40'), sweeping the ball home after Parris took it into the box. While England looked solid in defence and always threatening in the attack, the midfield had a worrying tendency to give the ball away. All doubts were, however, brushed aside in the 57th minute when Beth Meade slid a free kick from wide to Lucy Bronze lurking outside the box. Bronze struck the ball home first time with such venom that it passed over the goalkeeper before she had time to react.

Megan Rapinoe was once again the star for the US team, scoring twice. Her first, in the fifth minute came direct from a free-kick a couple of yards outside the left side of the French penalty area. She drove the ball low towards a knot of players none of whom got a touch and it went in at the far post. The second came from open play in the 63rd minute. France, who had looked second best, finally came to life when Renard nodded a floated free-kick home (83') but their attack was too tentative to find an equaliser.

England came off second best in a thrilling match filled with drama. Christen Press, in for the injured Rapinoe, put the Americans ahead in the tenth minute. Nine minutes later a sweepiing move split the US defence and ended with Ellen White volleying in from Mead's cross. England's elation did not last, Morgan heading home from a briiliant cross laid on by Horan (31'). While the US players looked fitter and more ruthless, England refused to fold under pressure but suffered some cruel luck in the second half. Ellen White had a goal disallowed after a VAR review found a marginal offside in the build up and in the closing stages Steph Houghton had a penalty saved.

Allianz Riviera, Nice
6 July

England's defensive weaknesses were exposed in the first 20-odd minutes during which Sweden built a 2-0 lead. The Lionesses then woke up and played some of the best football of their tournament. In the 31st minute Fran Kirby struck a finely weighted, curling shot that went in of he post. Two minutes later Ellen White controlled the ball with her chest, turned her marker and lashed it home. A VAR review, however, indicated that the ball had bounced off her chest against her arm which, under the new "zero tolerance" approach, was judged to have been handball. For the rest of the game Sweden dropped deep and defied England to get behind their defence.

The Netherlands were clearly the underdogs and their approach was to defend and attempt to score on the break. They denied the US team a shot on target for half-an-hour and as the United States attacked relentlessly the Dutch goalkeeper, Van Veenendaal performed brilliantly to keep them out. After an hour, a misjudged challenge by Van der Gragt led to a penalty via VAR which Megan Rapinoe cooly slotted home. Eight minutes later Rose Lavelle cut in between two defenders and scored with a low shot. The Netherlands never looked like they would come back from that blow and it was the USWNT who bossed the game until the final whistle.
