After knocking out the hosts of World Cup Canada 2015, England captain Casey Stoney, along with teammate Jade Moore, spoke of her delight at progressing to the semi-finals.

Although Stoney only came on for the final minute to sure-up the back and described watching from the bench as nerve-racking, the captain was incredibly proud of her team and even allowed herself to get a little emotion at just how far the squad have come.

The semi-final takes place on 1st July against current World Cup holders Japan.
