England were 10-0 winners away to Luxembourg in their second FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying group game.

Ellen White poked England in front from a Lauren Hemp cross after 12 minutes in Luxembourg, getting her second soon after when sweeping home a Fran Kirby pass.

One Kirby corner was nodded in by Nikita Parris, another fell to Alex Greenwood who marked her 50th appearance with a volleyed finish.

Greenwood made it 5-0 two minutes into the second half, Beth Mead’s ball into the six-yard box then forcing an own-goal from Jessica Berscheid.

Millie Bright got on the end of a Mead free-kick to open her Lionesses account and added her second in stoppage-time.

Still there was time for Rachel Daly to make it 9-0 and Beth England to take it to double figures with a header.
