Debutants make quick impression

England 3 (Ubogagu 26, Stanway 72, Daly 81)

Chioma Ubogagu and Georgia Stanway both scored on their debuts to help England defeat Austria 3-0 in Vienna in their friendly international.
This was the Lionesses' third match since they completed their World Cup qualifying campaign in September and the comfortable victory against their fellow Euro 2017 semi finalists extended their unbeaten run to eight matches.
With captain Steph Houghton rested just one game shy of her 100th appearance, Toni Duggan was handed the captain's armband for the first time, while there was a recall for England legend Karen Carney.
Head coach Phil Neville handed debuts to four players; Ubogagu, Stanway, Ellie Roebuck and Chloe Kelly, who was a late addition to the squad.
The first debutant to make an impact was Ubogagu, who marked her special day by opening the scoring on 26 minutes. Carney, making her first England appearance since March last year, tried to find Duggan inside the box. Wenninger attempted to clear but trod on the ball, allowing Duggan to find Ubogagu, who calmly slotted home from six yards out.
Duggan herself had two decent chances in the first half. One flew just beyond the angle while the other was well saved by Austria keeper Manuela Zinsberger.
Stanway, who scored six goals at the FIFA U20 Women's World Cup in the summer, came close with a low, drilled effort which zipped narrowly wide of the near post before hitting a well controlled volley into Zinsberger's arms.
It was a case of third time lucky for the young Manchester City hot shot when she finished an England counter attack by smashing Nikita Parris' pass into the roof of the net from 12 yards.
Parris, who came on for Melissa Lawley, hit the post with a header as the visitors threatened to run away with it.
There was still time for Neville to introduce two more debutants as Roebuck replaced Mary Earps in goal while Kelly took Duggan's place. The Everton forward came close to getting her own debut goal only to be denied by Zinsberger and then by Nina Burger straight after. Stanway smashed the rebound goalwards and Daly diverted the ball on target with a cheeky flick which hit a defender on the line before trickling into the back of the net.
England are back in action on Sunday when they entertain Sweden at a sold out New York Stadium in Rotherham.
England: Mary Earps (sub Ellie Roebuck 79mins), Hannah Blundell, Gabby George, Lucy Staniforth, Abbie McManus, Leah Williamson, Melissa Lawley (sub Nikita Parris 65mins), Karen Carney, Toni Duggan (sub Chloe Kelly 79mins), Georgia Stanway, Chioma Ubogagu (sub Rachel Daly 59mins). Subs not used: Carly Telford, Jordan Nobbs, Millie Bright, Alex Greenwood, Jill Scott, Isobel Christiansen, Beth Mead.
