Alex Scott

That's just about it for tonight then, as Scotland bow out of Euro 2017 after a battling and historic win over Spain, while England march on to the last eight as group winners.

There are plenty of positives despite elimination for the Scots, while Mark Sampson's Lionesses now have a couple of days to prepare for a huge, huge game.

England v France, in the quarter-finals of Women's Euro 2017, is on Sunday at 19:45 BST.

Make sure you join us for that one, as well as for live text coverage of all the other quarter-finals, which start on Saturday. Until then, good night.

'France won't be looking forward to it'

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

England striker Toni Duggan: "We're feeling very confident.

"I'm sure France won't be looking forward to the game.

"We're ready. If there's any time to beat France, it'll be now."

Can England beat France?

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

England boss Mark Sampson: "We have three wins under our belt - France have one win under their belt.

"We feel confident for these high-pressure games.

"We've got a two-day turnaround, but we'll be ready for France."

'We have momentum'

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

England's Nikita Parris - after her first goal at a major tournament - tells Channel 4:

"I'm so happy we came out in the second half and got the goal. We've got so much momentum.

"It was a great team effort. We can't wait to go into the France game now.

"I think France will be more scared of us than we are of them!"

'I can't ask for more'

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

Mark Sampson

England boss Mark Sampson: "We're really pleased with that result.

"A lot of teams found it difficult to escape their group.

"But building momentum is what we wanted. I'm proud of the team tonight, against an excellent Portugal team.

"Played three, scored 10... I can't really ask for more than that for the team."

Barry McBoyle: Despite the results, I am proud of our wee lassies. St. Andrew salutes you.

France await in the last eight

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

One of the pre-tournament favourites, France are ranked third in the world.

They've not lost to the Lionesses since 1974.

But they'll be without their captain, Lyon centre-back Wendie Renard, on Sunday through suspension.

'France won't want to play us

FT: Portugal 1-2 England; Scotland 1-0 Spain

England's Toni Duggan tells Channel 4:

"We know how good France are. But at a European Championships, you know in the latter rounds you're going to face tough teams.

"But in the form we're in, I don't think France would want to play us."

'I am so proud'

FT: Scotland 1-0 Spain

Scotland manager Anna Signeul: "It was fantastic how we fought. They are such small margins. We could have put it away also, we had some great chances.

"It has been so long that we wanted to get to this tournament that today we had everything to win and nothing to lose. I am so proud of them, because today we showed what we are about.

"These players are fantastic.The fans and coaches, the board, everyone here has been so supportive. We are taking it from a low level and we've built something so strong.

"It has united Scotland for girls and women's football. I'm very proud of what we've done. But it is a good time now [to leave as manager]. Now they will qualify for the World Cup, I am sure about that."

'England grind out results'

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

Rachel Brown-Finnis

Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 live

England's mentality, with that determination to grind out a result, reminds me of the Germany of old. They've got that mind-set.

'We told you there was more to come'

FT: Scotland 1-0 Spain

Scotland goalkeeper Gemma Fay: "We said that there was more to come from us, when a lot of people had written us off. There were two people at our press conference yesterday, nobody gave us a chance.

"But you should never write off this badge. We fought. We could have had more than one tonight and we were inches off that one we needed. But I am so proud of the girls, of this team, I'm so proud to be Scottish.

"We've got a great bunch here. This team can only get better. If we do the right things at grassroots level, strive to have that professional set-up, things can be great."

'We adjusted at half-time'

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

England goalscorer Toni Duggan tells Channel 4:

"Portugal threw everything they could at it.

"We made some adjustments tactically at half-time and it was great to regroup."

'Scotland have done themselves justice'

FT: Scotland 1-0 Spain

Steven Thompson

Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

It was painful to watch. Scotland rode their luck for a lot of the match. Spain have hit the bar and missed a couple of really gilt-edged chances. But in saying that we missed a massive chance ourselves through Leanne Crichton who was only three yards out with what looked like a tap-in. It was a brilliant match, the girls have really done themselves justice tonight.

Great to see. Anna Signeul is applauding the travelling Scotland fans and getting a brilliant reception in return.

Smiles in the crowd in defeat, but there are tears, too.

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

Jonathan Pearce

BBC commentator on 5 live

Mark Sampson has kept his first XI fit and fresh for Sunday, while getting another win.

England's passing completion rate tonight though, at around 74%, is not good enough. They'll have to be better than this.

FT: Scotland 1-0 Spain

That was such a fantastic game. Scotland. Heroic in their effort, tragic in their fate.

Scotland manager Anna Signeul is out there consoling her players. So this was, after all, the final match of her 12 years in charge.

'Job done'

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

Rachel Brown-Finnis

Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 live

They got the job done. You could tell they hadn't played together for a number of weeks, because they were a little bit too rusty.

But in the second half it was a much more assured, slick performance.

England top the group

FT: Portugal 1-2 England

England weren't at their best tonight, but it's job done. They maintain their 100% record and win the group.

FT: Scotland 1-0 Spain

Scotland fall desperately short of the two-goal victory they needed to reach the knockout stages.

There are some crestfallen figures out there.

Spain are jubilant.


Portugal 1-2 England

It's all over. Portugal go out, with Scotland. Spain go through.

Spain celebrate

Scotland 1-0 Spain

They came so close.

The end for Scotland and manager Anna Signeul is bittersweet.

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Spain clear. Gemma Fay stays on her line. Is there still time?..

Portugal 1-2 England

England are around 90 seconds away from earning their third win from three games.

From a Scotland point of view, England are doing their part of the equation.

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Deep free-kick. One last chance for Scotland.

Hit. IT. LONG. Where's the keeper?

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Spain play it fast and tight, Scotland desperately chasing after shadows.

Are they running out of gas as well as time?

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Still Spain with all of the ball. Scotland just can't get hold of it.

There will be TWO minutes added on.

Scotland need ONE GOAL to go through. Huge moments.

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Spain corner. Scotland breathe deep.

Marta Corredera flashes one in, all the way across goal, no touch on it.

A throw-in on the far side, when Scotland need to get it down and counter, as quick as they can.

Time is running out...


Scotland 1-0 Spain

Fantastic block from Ifeoma Dieke, last-ditch stuff as Spain overloaded, four against three on the counter.

If she hadn't stopped that pass there would have been three Spanish shirts queuing up to striker at goal.

TWO to go...


Portugal 1-2 England

Portugal, heading out of the tournament as it stands, make their final change. Laura Luis replaces Diana Silva, who had played well.

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Another Scotland free-kick. Good position, out wide stage left.

Caroline Weir whips it in to the back stick... but the Scotland shirts are crowded out. Goal kick as the ball sails harmlessly over the bar.

THREE minutes for Scotland to find their goal.

Portugal 1-2 England

A crowd of 3,335 is announced in Tilburg. There have been far bigger attendances at these Championships, that's for sure.

All the drama now is surely happening in the Scotland game. England appear to be in control of things at their end.

'I can barely watch'

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Julie Fleeting

Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

it is end to end stuff at the moment, I can barely watch. Scotland looking very positive when they're going forward, they're attacking in numbers, but as are Spain.

FIVE to go.

A booming Scotland free-kick from deep, into the box, is expertly claimed by the Spain goalkeeper Sandra Panos.

Scotland 1-0 Spain

Scotland need to gather and make their next counter count.

They are still having to dig deep to stop the Spanish, wave after wave of dangerous flow.

Maria Paz shanks another shot desperately wide. She has missed a hundred chances now.

Portugal 1-2 England

England remain the clear group winners as it stands. They're on course to go through with nine points from a possible nine.

That would mean a box-office quarter-final against France on Sunday.

Scotland 1-0 Spain

EIGHT minutes to go.

As is stands Scotland are heading out. They need ONE more goal.


Portugal 1-2 England

Wing-back Demi Stokes comes on for England and striker Toni Duggan - who scored the opener - goes off.

That might mean 4-4-2. Stokes goes to left midfield, by the looks of it.


Scotland 1-0 Spain

Ifeoma Dieke clears the ball off the line! Maria Paz nodded the rebound from another fantastic Gemma Fay save - who stopped a diving header from Alexia Putellas - but is denied!

Scotland still in it. Just...
