Four years on from reaching the UEFA Women's EURO 2009 final, England made their first major group stage exit in eight years after a dominant performance from Group C winners France.

Les Bleues had already clinched top spot before today after beating Russia and Spain, and were free to put on a footballing exhibition to delight the sell-out stadium record 7,332 crowd. Eugénie Le Sommer got things going and Louisa Necib – brilliant on her 100th cap – and Wendie Renard ensured France secured the 11th straight win of their campaign, going through from the group without dropping a point or picking up a booking. They stay here to play Denmark on Monday.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    France make it three wins from three and march into the quarter-finals brimming with confidence after taking England apart. Hope Powell's side, finalists in 2009, head home with only a draw against Russia to show from their tournament. They were outclassed today.
  • Yellow Card
    76
    F. Williams (England) is shown a yellow card.
  • Substitution
    73
    Clarke (in) - Carney (out) (England)
  • Goal
    64
    Renard (France) scores!
    The central defender gets her second headed goal of the tournament connecting sweetly with a well worked corner on the right and looping her header into the far corner.
  • Goal
    62
    Necib (France) scores!
    Lovely goal from France means England are almost certainly out. The midfielder does superbly as she collects on the edge of the area, drags the ball past Stephanie Houghton before driving into the top corner. A delightful finish.
