Lionesses thump Scotland 6-0 – but Team GB’s 2024 Olympics dreams still die

There will be no Team GB at the 2024 Paris Olympics, despite England thumping Scotland 6-0 at Hampden Park.

The Lionesses showed no mercy in their final Women's Nations League clash on Tuesday evening as they hoped north of the border. Sarina Wiegman's side were 4-0 up before the break, thanks to goals from Alex Greenwood, Beth Mead, and a Lauren James brace.

Fran Kirby got in on the act in the second half to net England's fifth. The Lionesses needed to better the Netherlands' result by three goals to reach the Nations League finals – and keep Team GB's Olympic dreams alive. However, the Dutch went 3-0 up against Belgium in the 90th minute.

The ball was now in the Netherlands' court, with England needing to score one more. Lucy Bronze stabbed the ball home in the 93rd minute – seemingly sending England to the finals and Team GB with a chance to make it to Paris.

And that was how things remained when the full-time whistle blew in Scotland. However, there was more drama in the Netherlands, with Juventus star Lineth Beerensteyn netting her second of the game.

After the game, Wiegman said: "I'm very, very disappointed. That's the biggest emotion right now. I think we delivered tonight, I think we've delivered this December camp.

"We started really well, scored four goals in the first half. When Lucy scored that goal I thought we'll get this but that's football. I said to the players: I don't know what to say because I'm very proud but we're not through and that's very disappointing.

"We were waiting, those were long minutes and I really thought we'd got it but obviously we didn't get it. It's not enough and that's really, really disappointing."
