Apparently England-Scotland kicks off 7pm tonight (Thursday), not 3pm. No stream announced. It coincides with a televised semi-final on Eurosport 2.

There was an unlucky sending-off minutes before the winning goal - Pauline Dechilly was told to wait to take the free kick, but disobeyed the referee, Volha Tsiareshka. The automatic yellow was Dechilly's second booking, leaving her distraught, and minutes later Spain scored.

Presumably the instruction was in English, maybe a misunderstanding?

The ref was pedantic on the second yellow card. I know Pauline, she speaks English a bit.
Overall it was a well organised and enjoyable tournament.
