Emma Coates' Young Lionesses add another victory to their tally at UEFA Women's U19 EURO qualifying stage
England Women’s under-19s made it two wins from two in their EURO qualifying group after a 3-0 victory over Slovakia on Saturday.

Emma Coates’ side began their campaign with a 5-0 win against Slovenia last week and followed that up with another strong result at the Slovakian national football centre in Poprad.

After a bright start, the Young Lionesses were handed the lead when Slovakian defender Karolina Bayerova scored an own goal after just two minutes of the game.

That was enough to give England a slender advantage at the break, but it was doubled just six minutes after the restart when Alex Hennessey gave her side a bit more breathing space.

And the victory was secured with just less than 15 minutes to go when Keira Barry converted a half-volley from Freya Jupp’s cross to make it 3-0.

England will play their third and final game of the trip on Tuesday afternoon when they face Denmark at the Spišská Nová Ves Stadium in Slovakia.
