England 6-0 Scotland

England open their UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 campaign with a 6-0 win!

Jodie Taylor scored a hat-trick as England opened their UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 campaign with an impressive 6-0 win over neighbours Scotland.

The 31-year-old put her side ahead after just 10 minutes and doubled the lead a quarter of an hour later.

Ellen White maintained her international run of luck by adding a third, before setting up Taylor for her hat-trick.

It was Taylor’s first treble for her country since she scored all three against Australia in March 2015 – and the first hat-trick at the Euro finals since 1997.

Vice-captain Jordan Nobbs made it 5-0 late on with a controlled volley from the edge of the box.

And Barcelona-bound Toni Duggan completed the victoryin added time by heading home from close range to make the final score 6-0.

 

The result means the Lionesses take early control of Group D, with Spain beating tournament debutants Portugal 2-0 earlier in the day.
