England striker Ellen White still hates VAR months after being 'robbed' of World Cup goal

England striker Ellen White admits she is still against the inclusion of video assistant referees in football after having a goal ruled out in last summer's World Cup semi-final defeat to USA.

The 30 year-old, who is set to start in the Lionesses opening SheBelieves Cup game against the USA, equalised when England were 2-1 down to the US, before it was ruled out and led to their exit from the tournament.

And White admits she still has not totally got over what happened to her eight months ago.

"I do sit at home and think 'ahh, I just can't stand VAR!'," said White.

"My husband will say the same thing! It's frustrating. I still get a lot of people saying stuff about VAR. It really irritates me but it is what it is - that's just football."

England play USA in Thursday's SheBelieves Cup match in Orlando, Florida (Friday, 12am GMT).
