David Beckham and his daughter Harper are watching England’s Lionesses tonight as they try to capitalise on a three-nil lead against Norway in their quarter final clash in France.
The seven-year-old reacted with delight after midfielder Jill Scott netted her attempt within three minutes, in the fastest goal of the tournament so far.
She was followed up by Ellen White at the 40-minute mark and Lucy Bronze with a stunning strike minutes into the second half, prompting the Beckham’s to share a high-five.
The action is being watched by as many as 20,000 fans inside the Stade Oceane in the north east coast city of Le Havre, with thousands more tuning in at home, including at the sun-drenched Glastonbury Festival.
Earlier, the Beckhams enjoyed a pre-match photo alongside the England players, with David saying he was ‘so happy to see the girls before their big game’.

Tonight’s game saw England enjoy a superb start, taking the lead before the three-minute mark.
Lucy Bronze cut the ball back from the right, Ellen White missed it with her attempt at a shot and it ran to Scott, whose strike went in off the post.
Later, Nikita Parris struck off-target from a good position and White cracked an effort against the post before the latter made it 2-0 in the 40th minute.
Bronze worked the ball to Parris and her lay-off was slotted in by White, moving her level at the top of the tournament scoring charts with the United States’ Alex Morgan and Sam Kerr of Australia on five goals.
Norway are without their best player, Ada Hegerberg, who won the Ballon d’Or last year but no longer competes with her national team.
She stepped down after a disastrous campaign at the 2017 UEFA Women’s Championship, when Norway failed to score a single goal.
Speaking afterwards, Hegerberg said the poor showing had affected her mental health and made her feel she always returned from international duty ‘as a worse player’.

She tweeted organisers asking for match to be screened, with the festival replying to say it would be shown on the West Holts Stage.
Anticipation for the heavyweight clash built on social media over the afternoon, with many expressing their nerves.
The Norway match comes four days on from the ill-tempered last-16 clash with Cameroon in Valenciennes that Phil Neville’s side won 3-0.
FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings against Cameroon on Wednesday over their behaviour in the game, which saw them twice remonstrate with the officials.
Cameroon also dished out some rough challenges, and England’s Toni Duggan was even spat on.
Neville spoke afterwards about feeling ashamed of Cameroon’s antics, while proud of how his own players handled things.
