Video: Football history...England women reach Under-19 European Championship finals after retaken penalty


England Under-19 women reached the European Championship finals in Israel in July in bizarre fashion, with Leah Williamson scoring with a retaken penalty from a match on Saturday.

Around 100 spectators looked on in amazement as just over a minute of football surely changed the face of the game for ever with a precedent set to replay fixtures when serious mistakes are made.

In the brief amount of time that the game was played, the England under-19 women's team scored a re-taken penalty against Norway to draw 2-2 and qualify for this summer's European Championship finals in Israel as group winners.
