England are through to the semi-finals of the Women's World Cup thanks to a 2-1 win over hosts Canada.
However, England also went close as Stephanie Houghton hit the bar with a header from another Williams set-piece.
The hosts did manage to pull themselves back into the game three minutes before half time as a cross was dropped by Karen Bardsley, and it was tapped in by Sinclair.
England continued to create chances at the beginning of the second half as Taylor forced the keeper into a finger-tip save from a low effort, while Katie Chapman's long-range shot marginally missed.
However, Canada quickly got on top as they forced England to drop deeper throughout the half. Chances started to come late on, but Adriana Leon wasted the best as she shot wide at the end of a waltzed run through the defence.
England held on, and will meet Japan in the semi-finals.
