“Lucy Bronze is the best player in the world, without a shadow of a doubt."
It was a bold claim, but Phil Neville's lavish compliment followed a performance that seemed to justify it. England had beaten Norway 3-0 in the FIFA Women's World Cup™ quarter-finals, and Bronze - having had a hand in their first two goals - had just scored a stunning third.
"I've played full-back, but never, ever to that level," added Neville. What's true is that the England coach rarely, if ever, scored a goal like Bronze's in this match - struck first time, with power and accuracy, into the roof of the Norwegian net.
Does Bronze deserve the France 2019 Goal of the Tournament Award for her stunning strike? You decide!
