Women's World Cup 2015: England celebrate in style

England beat Germany for the first time in 21 attempts

England's Lionesses wasted no time in celebrating their World Cup bronze medals after beating Germany 1-0 in the third-place play-off in Canada.

Fara Williams scored an extra-time penalty as England defeated Germany first the first time in 21 attempts and in doing so achieved the second-best performance by an England team following the 1966 win by the men's side.

Mark Sampson's side danced around the Edmonton pitch in jubilation before sharing their joy on social media.
