England Women 8-0 North Macedonia Women – Lionesses smash eight past North Macedonia in Sarina Wiegman’s first game


England Women crushed North Macedonia Women in an 8-0 victory to get their World Cup qualifying campaign off to the perfect start under new boss Sarina Weigman.

Six different goalscorers – two from North Macedonia – got on the scoresheet for England under the lights at St Mary’s Stadium.

England dominated from the start and they broke the deadlock through Ella Toone, who slotted home in the 12th minute.

Three minutes before the break and Ellen White extended England’s lead, stroking the ball into the far corner after the ball bobbled around in the crowded penalty box.

On the stroke of half-time England were firmly in cruise control as Julija Zivikj turned the ball into her own net.

North Macedonia had no answer to England’s relentless attacking football and White put England four up form the penalty spot in the 67th minute. Bethany England nodded in a fifth ten minutes later before Sara Kolarovska scored an own goal in the 79 minute.
