- Missy Goodwin a late substitute in England Under-23s' win

International representation started on Thursday night for the Foxes when Missy Goodwin and Emilia Pelgander went head-to-head in friendly action between England Under-23s and Sweden's Under-23s at New Bucks Head Stadium.

Goodwin was a late substitute while Pelgander got a full 90 minutes as the scores finished 3-1 in favour of the Young Lionesses. Missy Bo Kearns, Kiera Skeels and Katie Robinson scored England's goals as Evelina Dulian netted nothing than a consolation goal with just over 10 minutes remaining. 

On Friday afternoon, Howard, Jutta Rantala and Lize Kop all lined up for their first matches in the UEFA Women’s Championship Qualification stages, however the Scottish international was the only one to collect a point.

City's No.5 started and played the full game as Scotland played out a 0-0 draw with Serbia at Gradski Stadion Dubočica to place them second in League 2 Group B, with a home game against Slovakia at Hampden Park now in their sights for Tuesday.

Kop made the starting line-up for the Netherlands but couldn't prevent the Dutch side falling to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Italy as a goal in either half from the hosts at Stadio San Vito-Luigi Marulla made the difference. 

After an impressive nine games without defeat, which most recently saw them claim the Pinatar Cup, Finland were on the receiving end of a 4-0 loss against Noway. Rantala played the full game and will want to quickly move on to Tuesday night when they have the chance to earn their first points in League B Group 2 against Italy.
