Women World Cup Qualifier saw the England team demolished Luxembourg 10-0 with Ellen White, Alex Greenwood and Millie Bright each scored twice..


The Lionesses have now netted 18 goals in two matches under Sarina Wiegman.

Ellen White twice pounced from close range, Nikita Parris added a third before Alex Greenwood claimed a double.

An own goal followed, with Bright scoring her first two England goals before Rachel Daly and Bethany England completed the rout.

Goalkeeper Mary Earps, who was untroubled in Friday’s 8-0 win against North Macedonia, again started and had little to do as she tries to stake a claim as England’s number one.


Lucie Schlime’s night in goal for Luxembourg – ranked 114 places below England in the world rankings – could not have been any more different, making a fine reaction save to keep White out before the Manchester City striker struck twice in six minutes to put the visitors in control.

The first-half brace moved White to within three goals of equalling Kelly Smith’s record of 46 goals.

Wiegman had described the thumping of North Macedonia as an ‘OK’ performance and demanded a more clinical showing after producing 48 shots – only 18 of which were on target.

It was much the same against Luxembourg in the first period, with Fran Kirby and Ella Toone failing to take good chances before Parris added a third from a header and Greenwood marked her 50th cap with a goal either side of the break.


After an hour of incessant pressure, Jessica Berscheid directed the ball into her own net and centre-back Bright managed to celebrate her first two goals for the Lionesses on her 40th appearance.

Her second came in the first minute of injury time and yet there was still time for Daly to score an emotional ninth – just days after he father Martyn passed away – and on-loan Liverpool forward England delivered the 10th goal moments later.

Facing Northern Ireland – who beat Latvia 4-0 on Tuesday – next in October at Wembley will present a much sterner test for Wiegman’s side.
