Sunday, 18 October, 2009
Lois Fidler's side score 17 goals en route to three wins from three.
UEFA European Women's U17 Championship
First Qualifying Round
8 - 18 October 2009
England Women's U17 side eased into the Second Qualifying Round for the UEFA European Women's U17 Championship after three comfortable wins in their initial qualifying campaign.
England ran out emphatic 7-0 winners in their first two games, against Belarus and Macedonia, and completed their trio of wins with a 3-0 defeat of Wales earlier today.
Against Belarus The Three Lions had seven different scorers in the shape of Nakita Parris, Danielle Carter, Alex Greenwood, Katie Wilkinson, Lara Fay, Kirsty Linnett and Elizabeth Ince. Fay grabbed a double against Macedonia with Wilkinson, Parris, Carter, Jessica Round and Kasia Lipka also getting themselves on the scoresheet.
The margin of victory over Wales was not quite as big, but impressive nevertheless. Fay notched her fourth goal in three games just before the break, with Linnett adding another just after the restart. Ince made amends for an earlier penalty miss by scoring from the spot deep into injury time.
In total, England scored 17 goals in three matches without reply and will look forward to the draw for the Second Qualifying Round, which takes place in December.
