Congratulations to both the English and Canadian teams for such a great game in the Women's World Cup quarter-finals.

As President of the FA I'm thrilled to see the England women progress to the semi-finals for the first time. This team is making history and I can't wait to see them in action against Japan. I know a lot of people have been following the team's progress and I'm sure many more will now seize the chance to support this great moment for English football. The Lionesses are doing their country proud.
