England triumph at Stadium MK

10 April 2017

Over 6,500 supporters were in attendance at Stadium MK to watch England Women beat Austria in their final home match before Euro 2017.

The Lionesses, who are just 14 weeks away from their opening game of this summer’s European Championships, came out on top at the home of MK Dons courtesy of goals from Ellen White, Lucy Bronze and Isobel Christiansen.

White opened the scoring after just six minutes when she sent a glancing header into the far corner from Christiansen’s cross.

Christiansen was involved in the second goal too, as it was from her effort off the crossbar on 66 minutes that Bronze poked home.

The Manchester City midfielder then got on the scoresheet herself in the closing-stages, getting the slightest of touches on Steph Houghton’s header to turn it past Manuela Zinsberger in the Austria goal.

All in all it was the perfect evening for Mark Sampson and his Lionesses, who will be hoping Monday’s match is a sign of things to come heading into Euro 2017.
