Watch: Lucy Bronze gives England Women's World Cup win over Norway

Monday June 22nd, 2015

England has its first knockout-stage win in the Women's World Cup thanks to the golden right foot of its right back, Bronze. 

Lucy Bronze struck a blast in the 76th minute to break a 1-1 deadlock with Norway and carry England to a 2-1 win and a place in the quarterfinals, where it will play host Canada in Vancouver on Saturday. 

Norway had taken the lead in the 54th minute through Solveig Gulbrandsen, who flicked on a corner kick off the underside of the crossbar for the opening goal. England answered on a corner kick of its own, with Stephanie Houghton heading home a bouncer to the far post. 

That set the stage for Bronze, who finished off a layoff from Jodie Taylor with authority. Watch her blast below:
