  1. Goodnight

    OK that's the end of this live page now. See ya.

  2. Post update

    On Tuesday, England face defending champions the United States in the first semi-final.

    And the next day, it's Sweden v the Netherlands. Neither of those sides have ever won the World Cup.

    Both those games are in Lyon. Both those games are live on the BBC.

    We've got two days without any Women's World Cup football now. But after that mini-break...

  4. Post update

    Right, we're approaching the end of this live page now. Let's show you the goals one last time as Sweden ended their Germany "ghost".

    Paolo Brand: So if England beat the USA we’ll have a new name on the #WWC trophy. With #Germany out, what a chance this for #England too. Could it finally be coming home? We’ve been here before though with last summer’s World Cup opening up invitingly, and yet...

    Sweden have scored in all 14 of their World Cup knockout matches.

    Simon Atkins: Great victory. Poor game management from them towards the end though, a more confident Germany would have capitalised no doubt.

    Hatters:Well done Sweden much the better side. Unfortunately Germany were devoid of ideas

  8. 'Fair play'

    FT: Germany 1-2 Sweden

    Claire Rafferty

    Ex-England international on BBC One

    It was a direct ball down the middle to Sofia Jakobsson, and to be able to remain composed and score such an important goal for your country, fair play.

  9. 'Fantastic finish'

    FT: Germany 1-2 Sweden

    Jordan Nobbs

    England midfielder on BBC One

    Germany looked like they had started off the game really well and it was a fantastic finish for the opener.

  10. Post update

    This was the first time in 20 years that a team have come from behind to win a Women's World Cup quarter-final.

    The previous time was also a Germany defeat, 3-2 by the USA in 1999.

  11. 'A day for the defence'

    Germany 1-2 Sweden

    Pat Nevin

    Former Chelsea and Scotland winger on BBC Radio 5 Live

    The headlines will be about Stina Blackstenius and Sofia Jakobsson, who was brilliant. Kosovare Asllani was quiet. But this was a day for the defence. Their defence were great.

  12. 'Big surprise'

    FT: Germany 1-2 Sweden

    Jordan Nobbs

    England midfielder on BBC One

    It is a big surprise but not many people have been talking about this side of the draw. Everyone thought Germany would cruise to the final.

    Gary Woolton: Is this the first real surprise of this World Cup? Oh and it's utility player (re 85 mins).

  14. 'Germany just didn't hit that level'

    FT: Germany 1-2 Sweden

    Claire Rafferty

    Ex-England international on BBC One

    I cannot say I'm too upset that Germany are going home. Sweden got the tactical build-up spot on. I expected Germany to recover but it just they just didn't hit the level.

  15. Post update

    Germany 1-2 Sweden

    This is Sweden's fourth semi-final. Only the USA (eight) and Germany (five) have been to more.

    But Sweden have never won it. They lost the 2003 final... to Germany.

    That also means Germany can't defend their Olympic gold medal next year.

    Sweden join Great Britain and the Netherlands at Tokyo 2020.


    Germany 1-2 Sweden

    It's all over. Sweden will play the Netherlands in the World Cup semi-final next Wednesday.

    Two-time champions Germany are out.

    Germany 1-2 Sweden

    Almost a scare. Germany get the ball in the box, Sweden keeper Hedvig Lindahl is off her line as always but they can't do anything with it.
