England Women began life under new boss Sarina Wiegman with two crushing World Cup qualifying victories, eight goals against North Macedonia last week topped by double-figures in Luxembourg on Tuesday evening with Ellen White's brace taking her international tally to 43.

One-sided the games may have been but they will hopefully be the first building blocks put in place by Wiegman ahead of next summer's European Championships on home soil and she resisted the temptation to make significant changes for the Luxembourg game, naming nine of the same XI that had started against North Macedonia.

The two players that came in, Fran Kirby and Nikita Parris, have been mainstays of the England side over the past few years and their inclusion would have confirmed to minnows Luxembourg that they were in for a difficult evening.

Quoted in The Guardian, central defender Millie Bright's first impressions of life under Wiegman were hugely positive.

"We've implemented so much into the group and hopefully the fans are excited by what they saw," she said.

And supporters will next get the chance to watch England at Wembley on Saturday 23rd October when Northern Ireland provide the opposition in World Cup qualifying.
