It says a lot about the game that South Korea are trying to run down the clock at 4-0 down.82 min South Korea fail to clear another corner and the ball falls for Williamson, who shoots straight at Kim Jung-mi.80 min James has more than done her bit and comes off for Katie Robinson. Player of the match, for sure.GOAL! England 4-0 South Korea (James 78)What was that about England’s pace dropping off? Toone drives forwards in midfield and plays in Bronze to her right. She is tackled but the ball falls kindly for James, who leaves the back of the net bulging. It’s the least she deserves after a top performance.Lauren James scores the fourth goal.

England’s pace has dropped off a little, whether because of the substitutions or simply because they’re so comfortable.72 min Daly has a decent chance after getting in behind, but can’t quite tuck it away.70 min England win a corner and Hemp’s delivery is cleared as far as James. She gets a shot off, but it’s deflected and ricochets harmlessly away.68 min England make a rare mistake and gift Son a chance to shoot, but it’s high and wide.Son has an effort on goal for Korea.

As a reminder, this will be her first appearance for the Lionesses in eight years.Updated at 16.22 EST65 min Zelem is the latest England player to try her luck from distance, sending a shot bouncing just wide.62 min England execute a clever corner routine to the letter and, having received the ball unmarked in the middle of the box, Stanway hits the crossbar! This could be a rout if South Korea aren’t careful. Wiegman makes a triple change, bringing off Kelly, Greenwood and Russo for Lauren Hemp, Niamh Charles and Rachel Daly respectively.Updated at 16.19 EST61 min Kelly has a speculative shot from a tight angle, but it swishes wide of the far post.Updated at 16.13 EST58 min A mix-up in South Korea’s box almost costs them another goal, but they just about manage to scramble the ball clear.56 min South Korea’s free kick comes to nothing. England break via James, who is dragged back by Jang at the cost of a yellow card.Updated at 16.05 EST55 min Stanway gives away a free kick in a dangerous position after catching Kim Yun-ji. The South Korea midfielder leaves the field almost immediately, making way for Park Ye-eun. It’s a double substitution from Bell, with Kang Chae-rim also departing. She is replaced by Shim Seo-yeon.Updated at 16.09 EST52 min James breaks forwards once again but catches Lim Seon-joo across the ankles after the South Korea defender comes across and gets in front of her. The visitors get a free kick but it doesn’t relieve the pressure for long, Stanway going for goal from range only for Kim Jung-mi to make the save.Updated at 16.01 ESTGOAL! England 3-0 South Korea (Russo 50)James gets to the byline and scoops a cross to the far post, but it’s a little overhit. Greenwood gathers out wide on the left and gets the ball back into the danger area. Russo is there to thrash in at the near post. That should do it.Alessia Russo scores the third. Game over, you’d have to say. Photograph: Marc Atkins/Getty ImagesUpdated at 16.03 ESTGOAL! England 2-0 South Korea (Kelly 46)Well, that’s not a bad way to restart the game. Toone chases the ball out wide on the left and, after the visitors get in a defensive muddle, it breaks for Kelly. She drives forwards and has a crack from the edge of the area. The shot takes a wicked deflection and loops up into the back of the net.Chloe Kelly scores the second goal for England just after half-time. Photograph: Mike Egerton/PAUpdated at 16.01 ESTSecond half kicks offWe’re back in action at Stadium MK. Can the Lionesses extend their lead, or will South Korea turn it around? There’s only one way to find out. In the meantime, Wiegman has made a half-time change with Carter swapping out for Katie Zelem.James was, without doubt, the outstanding player for England in the first half. There weren’t many eye-catching performances from the visitors, though Choo was particularly impressive in defence and was one of their few outlets in attack.Updated at 15.43 ESTHalf-time, England 1-0 South KoreaSouth Korea emerge blinking into the light after so long turtled up, but struggle to assert themselves before the half-time whistle goes. England have the game just where they want it, with the visitors now obliged to drop their ultra-defensive stance. There should be more space to attack in the second half, which can only benefit Wiegman’s side. The hosts have played some really nice attacking football and, if they sharpen up their finishing, they could win this handily.Updated at 15.44 EST45 min There’ll be three minutes of added time at the end of the first half. Can England get another?43 min A short-corner routine ends with Kelly taking a pot shot from just outside the area, but it’s far too close to the keeper.GOAL! England 1-0 South Korea (Stanway 40 pen)Stanway makes no mistake, thundering her spot kick well beyond Kim Jung-mi’s reach. England deservedly lead. South Korea have little choice but to come out of their shell. This game could get very interesting.Georgia Stanway tucks away the penalty and England lead.

Stanway will be the one to take it.Lauren James is fouled and it’s a penalty to England. Photograph: Richard Heathcote/Getty ImagesUpdated at 15.32 EST37 min Off the inside of the post! James charges through and tees up Russo, who smashes the upright only for the ball to spin away off the line.35 min England win the ball in midfield after an energetic team press. Bronze gets down the right and tries to play in James, but she’s dispossessed. Bronze wins a 50-50 with Lee Geum-min, but her opponent hurts herself in the process and there’s a break in play. Lee looks to have hurt her shoulder and it’s unclear whether or not she’ll be able to carry on.32 min Jess Carter wins the ball fairly in a shoulder-to-shoulder with Son but, much to her frustration, it’s given as a foul. South Korea squander their free kick, allowing Earps to sweep up with ease.31 min Millie Bright decides she’s had enough with niceties and takes a thumping shot from distance, but it hurtles wide.30 min So close! England win a corner, Greenwood steps up and Stanway gets under it, but her header whistles just over the crossbar and nestles on the roof of the net.Georgia Stanway goes close for England! Photograph: Michael Zemanek/ShutterstockUpdated at 15.33 EST28 min Alex Greenwood comes forwards in support and almost gets in behind on the left, but Choo launches into an excellent tackle before winning a foul as the pair tussle for the loose ball.25 min Another short, sharp passing move ends with Kelly taking a shot which skews well wide. England are moving the ball much faster than their opponents and continue to create overlaps despite South Korea’s massed defence.22 min James makes a darting run past several defenders, bursting into the box before unleashing a shot. It takes a slight deflection which sucks the sting out of it, allowing Kim Jung-mi to get down low and make a bobbling save.18 min While the visitors are keeping it compact, they…
