England have progressed to the elite qualifying round of the UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship after a comfortable 4-0 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Lydia Bedford's side followed up their 2-0 defeat of Croatia on Monday, leaving them top of their first round qualifying group on six points. Chelsea's Aggie Beever-Jones opened the scoring on 14 minutes and Maria Edwards made it 2-0 before the break. Lucy Watson extended the lead early in the second half and Maisie Symonds added a fourth with just under quarter of an hour remaining.
