Internationals: Williamson opens England account


Ten of our stars were in international action on Tuesday night. Read on to find out how they fared:

Leah Williamson timed her first Lionesses goal to perfection as she scored a late winner to secure a 3-2 friendly victory over the Czech Republic.

Tereza Szewieczkova opened the scoring for the hosts in the 15th minute, before Bethany England equalised with an instinctive finish inside the area.

Beth Mead then went on to find the bottom corner with a stunning curling effort from the edge of the area, only for Szewieczkova to score her second of the night and level the scores once more.

Phil Neville’s side continued to push for a winner in the second half, and with less than four minutes remaining, Williamson took aim from 20 yards and found the bottom left corner with a deflected effort.

Vivianne Miedema scored twice for the Netherlands in a Euro qualifier as they ran out comfortable 4-1 winners over Slovenia.

Kaja Erzen opened the scoring for the visitors on the half-hour mark, before Sherida Spitse fired Oranje Leeuwinnen into a two-goal lead with two penalties either side of half-time.

Miedema then went on to score her first of the night with a powerful header from a well-worked corner routine, before making it four in the 70th minute with a smart finish.

Netherlands remain top of Group A with maximum points from their opening six games.

Manuela Zinsberger and Viktoria Schnaderbeck helped Austria make it four wins from four in Group G on Tuesday night as they defeated Kazakhstan 9-0.

Julia Hickelsberger and Nicola Billa both hit hat-tricks, while Laura Feiersinger scored twice. Sarah Zadrazil was also on the scoresheet.

Lia Walti provided an assist in Switzerland’s 6-0 win over Romania, helping them to maintain their 100 per cent start in Group H.

Ramona Bachmann hit a hat-trick with Walti providing the assist for her third, while Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic, Fabienne Humm and Svenka Folmi also found the back of the net.

Louise Quinn and Katie McCabe both played 90 minutes as Ireland were held to a 1-1 by Greece.

Amber Barrett handed Vera Pauw’s side an early lead, but Anastasia Spyridonidou pulled one back deep into stoppage time, preventing Ireland from making it three wins from three in Group I.
