England finished their Women’s World Cup qualifying campaign with a 100% record as forward Eni Aluko’s hat-trick helped secure an emphatic 10-0 win against Montenegro.
Mark Sampson’s team showed the ruthless streak the head coach had asked for to take their goal aggregate to 52-1 in 10 group matches.
Both Karen Carney and Toni Duggan scored twice while Lucy Bronze, Alex Greenwood and Jo Potter also scored in a totally one-sided contest in Petrovac.
England had already qualified for next year’s finals in Canada, but they finished on a high with their biggest win since a record 13-0 drubbing of Hungary in 2005.
Congratulations to Eni, Toni, Karen and the rest of the team – you did England (and Saving Lives) proud!
