As it happened: England beat Australia in 2023 World Cup

Wednesday's semifinal didn't disappoint in the end, as England rode out a 3-1 win over co-hosts Australia to book their spot in Sunday's 2023 Women's World Cup final.

A first-half goal from Ella Toone set the tone for the Lionesses, though Sam Kerr's brilliant long-range finish gave the Matildas a chance after largely chasing the game. However, Lauren Hemp seized on a mistake to quickly give England the lead, with Alessia Russo putting it beyond doubt with two minutes remaining.

Here is how the action unfolded in Sydney.
