    • 2015 June 9, “Women’s World Cup 2015: England beaten by France in Group F opener”, The Guardian (London):
      With Le Sommer withdrawn, France – now with five in midfield – seemed content to hold on for a deceptively narrow win. Such containment tactics can prove high risk but the only threat England could muster was a shot from Aluko which flew high and wide. It seemed entirely emblematic of their afternoon.
