England’s first home fixture in the UEFA Women’s U-23 European League was a 3-0 win over Belgium in front of more than 2,500 at Shrewsbury Town FC.

Aggie Beever-Jones forced Femke Bastiaen into a good save, with Jess Naz also denied before England took the lead midway through the first half.

Beever-Jones added to her goal in the draw away to Norway, closing down the keeper whose clearance ricocheted off her and into the net.

Bastiaen made a double save to deny Ella Morris and early in the second half Beever-Jones headed home but the goal was disallowed.

Missy Bo Kearns was thwarted by a save from Bastiaen but took the corner kick from which Kiera Skeels headed in to double the advantage.
