  2. 'Scott was unbelievable'

    FT: England 2-1 Spain

    England

    More from Phil Neville: "I've rotated and given everyone a chance now and now it's time to get into World Cup mode.

    "I thought Jill Scott was unbelievable all night. She gave us composure in the final third and that's what we were looking for. We didn't have that against Canada."

  3. 'Everybody wants to fight'

    FT: England 2-1 Spain

    Injured England midfielder Jordan Nobbs on BBC Two: "When you are going to a World Cup you need everyone on form. Everybody wants to be fighting for a place in the squad.

    "Thankfully, that is Phil's job to select them, not ours."

  4. 'Disappointed with composure'

    FT: England 2-1 Spain

    England

    England head coach Phil Neville on BBC Two: "We made that many changes in the second half that we lost our rhythm, but I made those changes because I wanted us to see out a game.

    "If you get to a quarter-final or semi-final you're not going to win games easily. I wanted to see how we were going to cope. I was disappointed a little bit with our composure.

  5. 'Tough for Neville'

    FT: England 2-1 Spain

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    It will be tough for Phil Neville but he wants that competition for places. The players he is bringing on are doing a good job for him.

  8. Post update

    FT: England 2-1 Spain

    Alex Scott

    Ex-Arsenal Ladies & England international on BBC Two

    We saw a different England team at times. Bodies on the line, defending and showing exactly what it means to get the win today.

  9. FULL-TIME

    England 2-1 Spain

    JOB DONE.

    England back to winning ways.

  10. Post update

    England 2-1 Spain

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    England's last line of defence have done really well. There's been flashes of excellence but it's not the finished article. They're not perfect, but they're going in the right direction.

  11. Post update

    England 2-1 Spain

    England having to defend late-on. Keira Walsh makes another good block on the edge of the box...

  12. Post update

    England 2-1 Spain

    Nikita Parris tracks back to make an excellent block on Leila Ouahabi's cross. The resulting corner from the left comes all the way through to the back post but it's too high.

  13. INJURY TIME

    England 2-1 Spain

    Four minutes of added time left to play. Can England hold on?

  14. Post update

    England 2-1 Spain

    Ellen White has just been given the Player of the Match award.

    Well deserved! She's been brilliant for England today. That will give Phil Neville a selection headache ahead of England's opening World Cup game against Scotland. Fran Kirby or White to start through the centre?

  15. CLOSE!

    England 2-1 Spain

    Mary Earps comes all the way out of her box to try and win the ball off Aitana Bonmati and she slips, leaving a goal gaping open behind her.

    Millie Bright and Gemma Bonner race back to cover it and Bonmati ends up skewing her shot well wide. Let off!

  16. Post update

    England 2-1 Spain

    Keira Walsh plays a wonderful first-time ball to Jill Scott on the right. It's played forward to Lucy Staniforth but the move breaks down when the space is closed off by the Spanish left-back.

    Neat passing from England.

  17. Post update

    Here's those silky skills which earned Spain a deserved goal. Ronaldinho-esque.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    England 2-1 Spain

    England goalscorer Beth Mead is replaced by Nikita Parris.

  19. Post update

    England 2-1 Spain

    Ellen White plays a sensational ball forward to Beth Mead, who has cut in from the right wing. Mead sees the keeper off the line and tries to lob her with an audacious long-range strike, but she doesn't catch it properly and it rolls comfortably into the keeper's hands.
