The date was August 16, 2023, and the Manchester City forward had scored and assisted against Women's World Cup co-hosts Australia to restore England's advantage in the tournament semi-finals.

But, as the clock ticked down in New South Wales, Hemp - as she so often does for both club and country - stood up to be counted, slotting past Mackenzie Arnold and teeing up Alessia Russo to make sure of the Lionesses' passage to the last two.
