England were beaten 1-2 by Sweden in the Women’s World Cup third-place play-off in Nice on Saturday.
England Women finish the tournament in fourth place after their defeat to the Swedes at the Allianz Riviera stadium.
The Video Assistant Referee once again intervened in the match to Phil Neville’s side’s cost when another Ellen White goal was disallowed.
Described as “a nonsense game” by the manager, these were the best tweets and jokes from the Women’s World Cup third-place play-off between England and Sweden:

40% – Two of the five goals initially awarded but then overturned by VAR at the 2019 Women's World Cup have been scored by England's Ellen White (40%). Tech. #FIFAWWC #ENGSWE pic.twitter.com/RQlAx72z51

20% better than 4th is roughly… 3rd

Unlucky. Try learning the off side rule and don't handle the ball and your goals will be legitimate. pic.twitter.com/QP2Wcjwp5k
