What is the Lioness story so far in the World Cup qualifying matches?
Before thrashing Latvia 10-0, England beat Northern Ireland 4-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Beth Mead and another goal from Bethany England.
The Lionesses’ feat of putting 10 past the Latvian goalkeeper is not the first time they have achieved such a scorecard. On Tuesday 21 September they scored 10-0 against Luxembourg’s Women. Millie Bright, Ellen White and Alex Greenwood all scored twice, while Nikita Parris, Rachel Daly and Bethany England all added another each. An own goal from Luxembourg’s Berscheid also contributed to the final tally.
Just a few days before their thumping of Luxembourg, England beat North Macedonia 8-0.
North Macedonia contributed two own goals to the scorecard, while Ellen White and Bethany England each scored twice. Other goals from Ella toone and Beth Mead ensured England an exceptionally comfortable win for the Lionesses.
England’s new head coach Sarina Wiegman has had a blissful start to her new role as she has had four games, four wins and 32 goals scored without conceding any. Wiegman took over the job from Phil Neville in September 2021 and she became the first non-British permanent Lionesses manager.
The Lionesses are currently on their best winning streak since the 2019 World Cup.
