This is the first time since 2011 England finished atop their World Cup group.

Despite the loss, Japan still advances to the knockout round.

Scotland bottles, fails to advance

After an Erin Cuthbert made the score 3-0 in the 69th minute, Scotland looked ready to advance to the knockout rounds.

Then, wow.

Argentina stormed back with goals in the 74th, 79th, and 94th minute to draw 3-3.

The stoppage time goal came off a penalty. It was originally saved by goalie Lee Alexander, but VAR ruled that she came off her line. The penalty was then taken again and converted by Flor Bonsegundo.

Scotland became the first team in Women’s World Cup history to blow a 3-0 lead.
