Abuja - Eniola Aluko has expressed her disappointment at England's 2 - 1 loss to Japan in the semi final of the FIFA Women's World Cup in the early hours of Thursday morning.

''Thank you to everyone for every IG comment of support and all your encouragement throughout the tournament. It's meant so much!!!''

Hull City striker and Nigeria international Sone Aluko was among the fans that watched the Lionesses take on Japan at the Commonwealth Stadium, Edmonton.
