Olivia McLoughlin's goal not enough to rescue a result against the Dutch at Algarve Cup
England Women’s under-19s ended their trip to Portugal this week with a narrow 2-1 defeat against the Netherlands on Monday afternoon.

The Young Lionesses, who enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Norway last week in their first game of the Algarve Cup, found themselves a goal down after less than ten minutes of the game when Dutch captain Danique Noordman opened the scoring in the sixth minute.

And it remained 1-0 at the break before the Dutch got their second of the game through substitute Lotte Keukelaar in the 74th minute.

But Emma Coates’ team kept searching for a way back into the game and they reduced the arrears four minutes later, when Olivia McLoughlin took advantage of a stray pass and fired home from 20 yards.

They couldn’t find an equaliser though and will now head home before resuming their WU19 EURO campaign in the new year.
