England Women thrashed Luxembourg 10-0 to stay top of World Cup Qualifying Group D, with Ellen White, Alex Greenwood and Millie Bright all scoring twice.

White gave the visitors the perfect start at the Stade de Luxembourg by poaching two goals in the opening 17 minutes, the striker’s 42nd and 43rd for her country.

Nikita Parris headed in a third just before the half-hour mark, before Greenwood’s two goals (37, 47) either side of half-time gave Sarina Wiegman’s side complete control of the game.

An own goal from Luxembourg defender Jessica Berscheid put the Lionesses 6-0 up and Bright then got on the scoresheet with a double (78, 90+1) – the defender’s first-ever goals for her country on her 40th appearance.

Two more strikes in injury time from right-back Rachel Daly and substitute Bethany England rounded off the scoring for the Lionesses, who stay top of the group after two matches on the road to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
