Worksop born Jade Moore and her England team-mates have progressed to the knockout stages of the Women’s World Cup, despite a nervy finish to their final group match.

The Lionesses were 2-0 up against Colombia before a stoppage time goal put England under pressure.

But they held on and booked a place in the last 16 against Norway.

Moore, a former Dinnington Comprehensive student, has played in all three of the group games, coming on as a substitute against France and starting in the victories against Mexico and Colombia.

England finished second in the group behind France, who beat them in the first game.
