Cal State Fullerton goalkeeper Karen Bardsley and the England Women's U21 National Team finished third at the 2005 Nordic Cup in Sweden, defeating Germany 4-3 on penalty kicks on Tuesday, July 26, in Saffle, Sweden.

After both sides had scored their first penalties, Saskia Bartusiak and Shelly Thompson for Germany and Kelly McDougall and Rachel Axon missed.

The fourth and fifth penalties were all scored to leave it 3-3, meaning it went to sudden death.

Anna Laue missed for the Germans and it was left to Birmingham City's Jo Potter to seal victory and clinch a very impressive third place for The Three Lions.

England finished 2-1 in pool play, defeating Finland (2-0) and host Sweden (2-1) while falling to Norway (1-0).

In other national team news, Bardsley was also selected as one of 28 players to attend the England Women's Senior National Team training camp by Head Coach Hope Powell next month in advance of the country's first 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier.
