The Lionesses took on Italy Women on Sunday, winning 2-1 on the day with both goals coming from Aston Villa’s Rachel Daly.

Sarina Wiegman made nine changes from the team that beat Korea Republic 4-0 on Thursday evening, with Daly starting up front for the Lionesses.

Italy had their moments but equalised in controversial circumstances. It looked like the ball went out of play just before Barbara Bonansea sent in a cross, which was nodded over Ellie Roebuck’s outstretched hand by Sofia Cantore (62).

Discussing the incident after the game, Daly told Sky Sports News: “That’s for you guys to decide. The referee makes the decision and there’s no VAR, we don’t have that week-in and week-out, so it’s something we have to deal with.

“You can get down about it, get annoyed about it, or you can move on and thrive and finish the game off. That’s what we did today. It was good character and resilience from us to get through it.”

England are top of the Arnold Clark Cup table on goal difference ahead of Belgium and have extended their unbeaten run under Wiegman to 28 matches!
