HIGHLIGHTS - Lionesses beat Brazil on penalties to win inaugural Women’s Finalissima at Wembley
England’s Chloe Kelly scored the winning spot-kick to settle the inaugural Women’s Finalissima after a dramatic evening against Brazil in front of a 83,132 Wembley crowd ended in a 4-2 penalty shootout victory.
Ella Toone looked to have secured the win for England with her 23rd-minute strike seeing the hosts leading going into the third minute of second-half stoppage time.
But Andressa Alves managed to beat England keeper Mary Earps to force the shootout, where Georgia Stanway, Rachel Daly, Alex Greenwood and Kelly – who scored the goal here that made the Lionesses European champions last summer – got the job done for the hosts.
Sarina Wiegman’s side are now undefeated in 30 matches, and will look to extend that streak when they host Australia in next week’s pre-World Cup friendly.
