Chelsea Ladies striker Eniola Aluko grabbed the assist as England edged past Bosnia-Herzegovina 1-0 in their Euro 2017 qualifier.
In the Lionesses’ first home game since their third-place finish at the Women’s World Cup in the summer, Aluko swung in a pinpoint cross which was headed in by Manchester City’s Jill Scott.
The goal somewhat saved England’s blushes however, with the Bosnians holding their own well throughout the match despite being ranked 72nd in the world, 67 places behind England.
However, the hosts dominated throughout in front of just over 13,000 fans at Bristol City’s Ashton Gate, spending much of their time in their opponent’s half.
Fellow Chelsea striker Gemma Davison also played, and impressed as she often looked dangerous in the final third.
The win means Mark Sampson’s side sit second in Group 7, facing current leaders Belgium in April.
