Young Lionesses secure win over group hosts in Tallinn as they continue U17 EURO campaign
England Women’s under-17s beat Estonia by 3-0 in Tallinn on Monday afternoon, after a first-half goal from Ava Baker and second-half strikes from Lola Brown and Maddy Earl.

The victory for Natalie Henderson’s team means that it’s two wins from two games at their UEFA Women’s U17 EURO qualification group with one fixture left to play.

After starting the group with an impressive 11-0 win over Ukraine in their first game at the Kadriorg Stadium in the Estonian capital last week, the Young Lionesses took on the group’s host nation at the bigger Lillekula Stadium.

The goals were certainly harder to come by on this occasion, with Estonia providing stern resistance until Leicester City’s Baker made the breakthrough just before half time.

While England dominated, clocking up almost 20 attempts at goal compared to Estonia’s solo effort, they had to wait until the last minute to double their advantage when Chelsea forward Brown scored after being set up by Vivienne Lia after a swift counter-attack from substitute Michelle Agyemang.

And they capped the win off in stoppage time when Arsenal’s Maddy Earl made it 3-0.

Henderson’s team will round off the group on Thursday afternoon when they take on Denmark at the Kadriorg Stadium (1.30pm BST)
