Euro 2005's rollercoaster ride
Around the Academy:

England kick off at Euro 2005
Teenager Karen Carney was a star for England

The biggest football tournament this year is well underway and sadly hosts England have been dumped out.

After losing to Sweden, all dreams of England lifting the 2005 European Women's Championship crown are over.

It's been a mixed campaign with plenty of thrills, spills and a bagful of goals, with Germany looking strong with Birgit Prinz in flying form.

England celebrate their win
England's joy didn't last long

England got off to a dramatic start with a 3-2 nail-biting victory over Finland thanks to a stunning late goal from teenager Karen Carney.

The 17-year-old even had exams to contend with during the week!

And then despite the huge crowds cheering the hosts on Denmark and the Swedes proved too much for Faye White and co.

So it's down to the semi-finals with world champs Germany taking on the Finns.

While Sweden take on Norway. The final will be on Sunday 19 June.
