  1. Bye for now!

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    That's all for now, but we'll be back very soon as Scotland take on South Africa in their first match of stage two of preliminaries.

    That one starts at 17:25 BST, so we'll be back at 17:15 BST.

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    So here's how England's group is looking right now, with the top two teams making it through to the semi-finals.

    The Roses are top, but none of the other sides in the group have played their third match yet.

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    A messy ending, but that won't matter. Look how much this result means to Tracey Neville!

  4. 'If you want to be the best you've got to beat the best'

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    England GK Geva Mentor said:

    "I'm knackered. I'm so excited. It was a strong performance out there. We stuck in there and held our nerve.

    "It was about doing our own job first and connecting together. You can't beat a team like Jamaica on your own

    "I felt like I had my work cut out against Jhaniele Fowler. She's a phenomenal athlete and it was a real team performance that helped me do my job at the back.

    "We've got a tough group but if you want to be the best you've got to beat the best."

  5. 'We had seven heroes on that court today'

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    England coach Tracey Neville said:

    "They were following the game-plan and kept having moments when they were letting Jamaica back in the game.

    "We knew this was going to be one of the toughest games in this round. We had seven heroes on that court today and four on the bench.

    "We wanted to play straight lines to the ball as an attack. We wanted to keep driving to the ball. We were limiting our options on the centre pass and that put Serena Guthrie under pressure.

    "The shooters did an excellent job considering the world-class defenders they were up against.

    "We needed a leader today and Serena deserved man of the match. I think she'll be quite happy for her day off tomorrow as well."

  6. Get Involved - England win

    #bbcnetball #ChangeTheGame

    Kaz Simpson: Come on the England!

    Chloe Wilson: Serena Guthrie... outstanding. Pure class. England netball's greatest ever player??

    Karen Hassan: Jamaica v England women’s netball - holy moly what an epic game.

  7. 'They've sent Jamaica packing'

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    Sara Bayman

    Former England captain on BBC Two

    It's a massive dent for Jamaica. They were England's bogey team for so long and they always met in the bronze medal match. They've essentially sent Jamaica packing from this tournament, they'll find it hard to progress. England will go into the South Africa game with so much confidence knowing they could top the group

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    Jo Harten was this hyped for the whole game. Lovely stuff from the GS.

    An almighty roar greets the final whistle and England are jumping with delight, smiles broader than the horizon on their faces.

    Tracey Neville is full of emotion as she hugs her players.

    Incredible scenes.

  10. Post update

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    England make a circle in the middle of the court and chant in celebration.

    Tracey Neville hugs Geva Mentor then grabs her on either side of her face.

    Then the team get in another circle with the coaches and captain Serena Guthrie gives them a talking before a good old 'hands in, England on three' moment.

    Scenes, as they say.

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    Tracey Neville waves her hands to get some more noise out of the crowd.

    Her side have all but sealed their place in the semi-finals with that win.

  12. England win

    FT: Jamaica 48-56 England

    Jo Harten gets one last cheer as she pops in her 27th goal. The GS goes for one more from long range but won't get it.

    Doesn't matter, another win for England!

  13. What's the face, Tracey?

    Q4: Jamaica 47-55 England

    Pamela Cookey

    Former England shooter on BBC Two

    That's Tracey's frustrated look. She always wants more and more from the team!

    Q4: Jamaica 47-55 England

    Jamaica's defence is all over England. The Roses manage to keep possession, though, making use of Eboni Usoro-Brown behind.

    Less than a minute left.

  15. Post update

    Q4: Jamaica 47-55 England

    Serena Guthrie spins around with the ball trying to find a free player but finds no one. That's three seconds and Jamaica get possession.

    England's level has dropped off a bit, maybe because they have an eight-goal lead with two minutes to go.

    Q4: Jamaica 45-55 England

    Helen Housby goes for a long ball in to Jo Harten, but they may have forgotten that they're up against Shamera Sterling. The GK is extremely bouncy and leaps up to tip the ball.

    Jhaniele Fowler keeps up her 100% record with a 40th goal.

  17. Post update

    Q4: Jamaica 42-55 England

    Make that a 13-goal lead, courtesy of Helen Housby.

  18. Post update

    Q4: Jamaica 42-54 England

    Chelsea Pitman feeds the ball in, but it goes straight to Shamera Sterling.

    It's a turnover for Jamaica, who have got a 12-goal lead to overturn or their semi-final hopes will be dealt a huge blow.

    Four minutes remaining.

    Q4: Jamaica 41-54 England

    Pamela Cookey

    Former England shooter on BBC Two

    Romelda Aitken's been off injured in the SunCorp league. She's come into this World Cup with shooting stats which aren't good enough. But can she make a difference here?

  20. Post update

    Q4: Jamaica 41-54 England

    Romelda Aiken is on for Jamaica. That means the Sunshine Girls have Jhaniele Fowler, who is 6ft 6in, and Aiken, who is 6ft 4in, in their shooting circle. Harsh.

    Geva Mentor and Eboni Usoro-Brown will be feeling the burn in their legs after all the jumping they've been doing today.
