England Women’s U21s picked up a 1-0 victory over France at St. George’s Park on Thursday and then went one better in the second meeting on Sunday.

Rehanne Skinner’s side took just 4 minutes to score in the first game, Tottenham Hotspur forward Rianna Dean letting fly with a shot past French keeper Justine Lerond.

The second game of the double-header also brought an early goal, with Liverpool’s Niamh Charles netting on 5 minutes.

Dean then doubled the lead around the hour-mark to make it two goals in as many games for herself.
