Lionesses’ resurgence of greatest quality saves them from Wembley nightmare

Halt the investigation, silence the alarms: the true Lionesses have returned. With their sights set on qualifying for the next summer’s Olympics on behalf of Team GB, England showed just how motivated they are by making a thrilling second-half comeback against the Netherlands at Wembley. Trailing 2-0 and fighting to reach the Nations League finals, the Lionesses never gave up and Ella Toone delivered a dramatic stoppage-time winner to save the day for England.

It looked like Sarina Wiegman’s squad was in for a rough night after a subpar first-half performance, but the Lionesses fought back with resilience and determination. Even with a vital win in hand, there’s still more work to do to secure their spot in the finals, so they’ll need to bring that same level of intensity to their upcoming match against Scotland.

Feeding off the momentum of her return to the field, Beth Mead seemed to inspire the Lionesses with her presence, while Lauren James stepped up and played a vital role in helping England secure the win. Reversing their fortunes after halftime, England moved the ball more effectively, tightened their defense, and made the necessary adjustments to secure the win.

The Lionesses gave it their all, leaving everything on the field, and marked their last home game of 2023 with an impressive performance that seemed impossible after the first half. Even with the challenges they faced and their exhaustion at the end of the game, the Lionesses have kept their hopes alive. Now, as they prepare for their upcoming match against Scotland, the real Lionesses are back.
