Russia 1-3 England

The Lionesses regain control of World Cup qualifying group

England Women regained control of their World Cup qualifying group following a 3-1 win in Russia.

Wales went top for 24 hours after their 1-0 defeat of Bosnia on Thursday night, but a Jill Scott brace and a Nikita Parris header helped the Lionesses climb back to the top of the tree.

Phil Neville’s side are now two points clear of the Red Dragons with just two qualifiers remaining, away to Wales (31 August) and Kazakhstan (4 September).
