England fans adamant ‘it’s our year’ as Lionesses fight back to reach Euros semi

England fans are adamant the Lionesses are going all the way after producing a spirited comeback against Spain to progress to the Women's Euros semi-finals.

Sarina Wiegman's side fell behind early on in the second half at the Amex Stadium when Esther Gonzalez netted. But Ella Toone's strike six minutes from time forced extra-time in the first quarter-final of the tournament.

And a rocket of a finish from Georgia Stanway gave the host nation the lead, which they saw out for the remainder of the match to move closer to their first ever major tournament success.

Another posted: "It’s probably coming home at this point. But what a game this has been."

A third commented: "It’s our destiny #Lionesses – the bravery of this performance versus the utter capitulation of the men v Italy last year – these women are very very special."
