Chelsea Women’s team rising star Lauren James, stole the show during England’s intense battle against Denmark in the ongoing Women’s World Cup. Her player-of-the-match performance was highlighted by a stunning goal, securing a vital victory for the English side in Group D at the Sydney Football Stadium in Australia.
Taking the field for her first-ever World Cup start, Lauren wasted no time making an impact. Within just six minutes, she expertly curled a beautiful ball into the net, leaving Danish goalkeeper Lene Christensen with no chance to save it.
Throughout the match, Lauren had a couple of other opportunities to add to her tally, but couldn’t quite capitalize on them. Nevertheless, her brilliance and determination made a lasting impression on the field.
The game turned into a tightly contested affair, with England eventually clinching the win, thanks in large part to Lauren’s exceptional performance.
Reece James took to Twitter right after the match. He shared an old photo of himself with Lauren and captioned it with a heartfelt message of pride and admiration for her achievement “Proud”.
