    A brilliant England comeback has brought the Great Britain women's qualifying bid for next year's Olympic football tournament back from the brink

    A brilliant England comeback has brought the Great Britain women's qualifying bid for next year's Olympic football tournament back from the brink


    Trailing The Netherlands 2-nil at halftime of this morning's Nations League match at Wembley - nominated qualifying nation England appeared on track to be responsible for a Great Britain no show at the Paris Games.

    But three second half goals - including the winner to Ella Toone in added time - has kept their hopes alive.

    Toone says she loves scoring big goals in big games.



    England will reach the Nations League finals if they beat Scotland next week - and The Netherlands don't beat Belgium.

    The Nations League Finals double as the qualifiers for the Paris Games.
