England win Florida tournament
 Women's Football England International News - 15 Dec 2017
 
England Under-20s have had a successful week as they have won the Nike International Tournament in Florida.
 
With Mo Marley at the helm, England went into the four-team round-robin tournament with their first match against hosts United States and things got off to a thrilling start as they battled out a 3-3 draw.
 
A Sophia Smith brace and an own goal by Grace Fisk had given the hosts a 3-2 lead in Florida, with the Young Lionesses' goals coming from Ellie Brazil and Anna Patten. Smith's second goal came on 87 minutes and looked to have won the game for Jitka Klimkova's side, but Alessia Russo popped up right at the death to earn a point for England.
 
This set up a meeting with Brazil on Saturday evening and Alessia Russo's goal this time clinched a 1-0 victory in a keenly fought second contest.
 
England had been on the back foot in the first half with Sandy McIver keeping out a fierce effort from Kerolin before Victoria went close for the South American side. McIver was in good form and would frustrate the Brazilians throughout the match.
 
Russo's goal came on after a quick breakaway from England with Charlie Wellings getting forward before finding her team mate in space. Russo showed real composure to steady herself before firing beyond Kemelli in the Brazil goal.
 
This result put England into pole position going into the final match and victory over Finland would be enough to win them the tournament.
 
England got off to a lightning start with Kess Elmore putting them ahead after just seven minutes. Zoe Cross doubled the lead before Rianna Dean bagged the first of her brace just before the break.
 
Dean added her second after 55 minutes with Georgia Allen and Ellie Brazil completing the scoring late on to round off a 6-0 win.
Mo Marley's side will compete in the FIFA Women's Under-20 World Cup in August next year, with the draw taking place on Thursday 8th March.
 
England squad: Ellie Roebuck, Anna Patten, Maz Pacheco, Chloe Peplow, Grace Fisk, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Alessia Russo, Mollie Rouse, Ellie Brazil, Zoe Cross, Niamh Charles, Taylor Hinds, Sandy MacIver, Georgia Allen, Lucy Parker, Rianna Dean, Rinsola Babajide, Kess Elmore, Charlie Wellings, Alicia Johnson.
