Natasha Flint was amongst the scorers against Serbia on Monday morning

England Women's U19s made it two wins out of two in their latest Euro qualifier on Monday morning, when goals from Natasha Flint and Rosella Ayane sealed a 2-0 victory over Serbia.

Mo Marley's side began their Elite Qualifying Round games with a 1-0 win against Denmark on Saturday.

This result now means that another three points against host nation Finland on Thursday will be enough to see them reach the Euro Finals in Norway next July.

Despite their domination of the game in terms of possession and attempts on the Serbia goal, it was still goal-less at half time in Helsinki.

But the Lionesses broke the deadlock after the break in the 67th minute, when Manchester City winger Flint opened the scoring to put her side in control and on the way to victory.

And when Chelsea forward Ayane was brought on to replace Sarah Mayling just after the hour-mark, she made the points secure in stoppage time with a killer second goal.

England will play their final, and decisive, game in Helsinki on Thursday morning.
