England Women put on a superb performance as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Euro 2022 warm-up game. Chloe Kelly opened the scoring in the 62nd minute before Rachel Daly doubled their advantage in the 66th minute. An unfortunate own goal by goalkeeper Nicky Evrard sealed the three points in the 83rd minute.

Managers Reaction 

England Women boss Sarah Wiegman: “The first half, we played well, we created but didn’t score. We needed some more depth in the game, runs in behind. We did that a little better in the second half. When you win 3-0 it’s enough, but when we go into the Euros we need a little more ruthlessness. We have a plan when we play. Of course, we want to score the chances, but as long as you don’t concede you have time. We dominate the game and then you have to have patience. There comes a moment when we do score that one; yes, we want to do it earlier but in the final third we have to be a little more ruthless.”

“The competition in this team is very high. We have opportunities for many players. Now we are also looking for connections. Different qualities in different positions. We’re getting a little closer, but we are not all set. Two matches to go. Things can change really quickly too, that’s what we know in this sport. We have a squad of 23 and you can play every single player. I hope I don’t get a headache, but they are giving me problems [in selection].”
