Sister of England footballer 'couldn't be prouder'

The sister of England footballer Jill Scott has said she "couldn't be prouder" of what the team has achieved during the Women's World Cup.

Amanda Wilson told Good Morning Britain she was yet to speak to Jill after last night's defeat but said the team had been "brilliant to watch" during the tournament.

England lost 2-1 to Japan after an own goal in the semi-final in Canada last night.

Ms Wilson told GMB: "I always remember Jill kicking a football. Probably around 7 she played on the boy's team up to about 11. All the boys absolutely loved her and they all wanted Jill on their team - she used to run rings around them."
