England are now in pole position to qualify for the 2019 World Cup in France. England boss Phil Neville, had enjoyed success in other competitions after signing on as the new boss but was patiently waiting for his first win in the World Cup qualifiers after last week’s draw. England dominated the match against Bosnia and Herzegovina Women. As they ended the match with 80% possession and had 21 shots in total as compared to Bosnia’s 20% possession and 1 shot in the whole match. These stats however did not work to the advantage of England in the first half as they failed to score. Greenwood picked up a second yellow card and was given marching orders on the 47th minute. England went on to score even with a player short as Tony Duggan who plays for Barcelona, converted Mel Lawley’s cross. This is her 20th goal in her international career. Bosnia also lost a player as their captain Amira Spahic was sent off on the 59th minute. Jodie Taylor scored the second from the penalty spot to make it 2-0 for England after Mead was brought down in the box. This win for England means that they have moved to the top of the group with a two point advantage ahead of Wales in Group A.
