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

  7. 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.

  8. '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."

    "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."

    Rachel: When England team is built round Jordan Nobbs, we are great! Brings best out of everyone. What a player!

  12. '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.

  13. '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."

  14. '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."

  15. '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.

    FT: Scotland 1-0 Spain

    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.

  17. Post update

    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.

    England manager Mark Sampson
  18. Post update

    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.

  19. '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.

  20. 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.

    Nikita Parris
