A Natasha Flint treble guides Women's U17 team to Euro qualifying win over Israel
England have kept alive their hopes of making it through to the final round of Euro qualifiers after a comfortable 5-0 win over Israel in Castledawson.
Natasha Flint stole the show with a first-half hat-trick and Vyan Sampson made it 4-0 just before the half-hour mark.
Carla Humphrey completed the scoring two minutes after the restart.
Only the top-placed nation in the group will qualify, alongside the best runners-up, so it looks as though England will have to beat Italy on Saturday to progress the Second Qualifying Round.
The Finals will take place in Switzerland next summer.
