Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Wayne Harrison, Reporter, Lahti Stadium: A long-range effort from Alessia Tuttino earns Italy all three points and gets their Group C campaign off to a flying start, four years after losing all three group games in England. England looked well placed for a draw until Tuttino's moment of brilliance and will know there is still plenty to play for after winning their first game of UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2005™ and then failing to reach the knockout stage. Next up for the Azzurre is Sweden on Friday, when England face Russia.
