Latvia 0-10 England: Lionesses maintain 100% record in Women's World Cup qualifying

Last update on.From section England
After scoring twice in the 10-0 victory over Luxembourg, Millie Bright, Defender, scored her third goal in three matches.

Ella Toone scored a hat trick as England scored 10 goals against Latvia to keep their 100% record in Women’s World Cup qualifying.

Ellen White scored her 44th international goal, moving joint second in England's list of top female goal-scorers. A penalty was also saved because the Lionesses were completely in control.

Manchester United's Toone was twice unmarked. She scored the first two goals in the opening twelve minutes, and then got the third in the second period. She beat the goalkeeper at her near post.

Chelsea defender Millie Bright scored then from close range. Beth Mead got a goal with a composed finish, and substitute Rachel Daly was able to tap in from just a few yards.

Captain Leah Williamson scored an eighth goal, while Georgia Stanway shot a low shot in the corner to number nine.

Daly turned the keeper for England's tenth -- the second time they had achieved double figures in qualifying after their 10-0 win over Luxembourg last month.

They were unable to achieve their greatest competitive win, a 13-0 victory against Hungary in 2005.

England is currently top of Group D with four wins from 4, having scored 32 goals and conceding none.

The perfect gift for your boss Wiegman's birthday

This was the continuation of a remarkable run since Sarina Wiegman took over England as boss. She managed four games, including an 8-0 win against North Macedonia and 10 goals against Luxembourg. Then, she won a 4-0 victory over Northern Ireland.

Wiegman, 52, was delighted by the professional nature and dominance of the win that she had outlined after naming an attacking line up.

England had 78% possession and 58 shots, 21 of which were on target. England also had 24 corners. Latvia was ranked 102nd in world, 94 places lower than England. It had zero shots and didn't have one corner.

Latvia was spared further embarrassment by Enija Anna Vaivode, the home goalkeeper.

White was not penalized as Kerry Davis missed the opportunity to surpass her total of 44 goals. White's earlier goal, however, left her two goals behind Kelly Smith's record of 46.

"We don't want be watching cricket scores"

Emma Hayes, Chelsea manager, commented on ITV4 that this was not a good advertisement for women's soccer. She stated that "Uefa should invest more in smaller countries and help grow the game globally."

"England cannot beat all that's in front them, but we don’t want to be watching cricket scores. Latvian team needs more funding, support and a better schedule.

"Latvia has defended their lives in the second period as best they can. It all comes down to what Fifa or Uefa can do in order to divert funds for countries such as Latvia and their leagues.

"Maybe we have something like the Nations League for the men's team - it is not good for the game that 10-0 games exist."
