Ruthless England end Australia's World Cup run to make final

SYDNEY -- It was sheer pragmatic, controlled aggression from England that ended Australia's fairy tale. Not even Sam Kerr scoring one of the greatest goals in Women's World Cup history could keep the music playing for the team that has led Australian football to new heights. The Lionesses had no interest in playing their role in the miracle of the Matildas, that's just not how they do things under coach Sarina Wiegman.

There's something truly remarkable about this England team, and their manager. They are big-tournament monsters. Whenever they're faced with adversity, they charge straight through it, rather than find a way around any challenges.
