England took a step closer to the UEFA Women’s U-19 Championship Finals with a 2-0 victory over Iceland on Saturday afternoon.
Grace Clinton forced Tinna Bra Magnusdottir into a save in the first half, then five minutes after the restart Tara Bourne crossed and Aggie Beever-Jones headed in.
Freya Gregory was another to force Magnúsdóttir into a save, while Manchester City goalkeeper Khiara Keating did need to make saves in each half.
But the victory was effectively guaranteed in injury-time when Beever-Jones set up Gregory to make it 2-0.
England go into Tuesday afternoon’s game with Belgium (kick-off 1.30pm) knowing victory would guarantee their place in the Finals.
