Three goals in the final fifteen minutes condemned England under-17 to a 4-1 defeat to Denmark in the UEFA Under-17 Championships third place play-off in Nyon.
England got off a superb start by taking the lead after two minutes, Rebecca Jane crashing a 20-yard shot over Lene Gissel Rasmussen and into the back of the net.
With the defence standing strong, England looked to build on their early advantage but were pegged back just before the half hour as Simone Boye Sorensen, who had just entered the field as a first half substitute, levelled the scores with a good finish.
England captain Gemma Bonner almost put her side back in front early in the second half but her close range effort was blocked and Jessica Holbrook also went close, but it was Denmark who struck next as Amanda Marie Hohol fired in from 25 yards. The Danes then added two further goals in the dying minutes through Anne Thirup Rudmose and Linette Andreasen.
There was some cheer for England duo Lauren Davey and Lucy Bronze who were named by uefa.com as two of their eleven players to watch for the future.
England: Lauren Davey, Stephanie Marsh, Jodi Jacobs, Gemma Bonner (sub Rachel Daly 74mins), Jemma Rose, Jessica Holbrook, Jordan Nobbs, Isobel Christiansen, Danielle Carter, Rebecca Jane (sub Sarah Wiltshire 42mins), Naomi Chadwick. Subs not used: Amy Carr, Lucy Bronze, Naomi Cole, Rachel Pitman, Lucy Staniforth.
