CHELSEA LADIES: BLUNDELL IN FINAL LOSS

There was disappointment for Chelsea Ladies' defender/midfielder Hannah Blundell this weekend as she was part of the England side that lost the European Under-19 Championship final to France.

Blundell had featured in every game up to the final, starting two and coming on as a substitute in the others, and as in the semi-final win over Finland, she was introduced against France with just over quarter of an hour of normal time remaining.

The score in Llanelli, South Wales, was 0-0 and remained so into extra time, both sides having had efforts cleared off the line, but two headers, the first deflected in, gave France a 2-0 win.
