England 2-0 Japan
England face a favourable draw in the Women’s World Cup last 16 after they beat 2011 winners Japan to finish top of Group D thanks to two Ellen White goals.
Lionesses boss Phil Neville seemingly took a gamble by making eight changes to the side that beat Argentina in the second group game.
But in White, who returned to the side, they have a finisher of real class as she scored her 30th and 31st England goals either side of the break from clever through balls.
England still stuttered playing out from the back against the 2015 finalists, who beat the Lionesses in the semi-finals four years ago.
Argentina 3-3 Scotland
Scotland are out of the Women’s World Cup after a twice taken added-time penalty gave Argentina a dramatic draw.
The Scots needed to win and Kim Little turned in their opener before Jen Beattie and Erin Cuthbert netted from corners after the break.
Milagros Menendez then Florencia Bonsegundo replied for Argentina.
A VAR-awarded spot-kick taken by Bonsegundo was saved by Alexander but she was off her line and the Argentina forward converted second time round.
With 16 minutes to play, Shelley Kerr’s Scots were on course to be one of the four best third-placed sides going into Thursday’s final fixtures in Groups E and F but Argentina’s recovery consigned the Scots to bottom place in Group D.
Cameroon or Nigeria will have a chance of qualifying for the next stage of the competition should Cameroon beat New Zealand on Thursday.
