England women beat France with 4-1 win

According to BBC Sport, England women beat France 4-1 in the SheBelieves Cup which took place in the United States, giving Phil Neville an amazing beginning to his era as a head coach.

The first-half hour of the match was made memorable by goals from Jill Scott, Jodie Taylor and Toni Duggan in the windy weather of Columbus in Ohio.

Kirby introduced a fourth prior to Thiney's consolation.

One of the most shocking sights in the game was seeing Chelsea defender, Anita Asante, limp off the pitch for the first time since 2015.

Barcelona's Duggan swiped Kirby's pass behind the goalkeeper, Karima Benameur, rewarding England for their excellent start.

In spite of being exceptionally ranked as 6th in the world, France found it difficult containing the fluid, slick exchanges between Neville's team during the game.

Taylor's specific chip jumped away from the crossbar just before Scott increased England's advantage with a shift into the bottom corner.

Parris' pass unleashed Taylor for a third and Kirby finalised England's take away score.

Although Asante suffered an injury, this meant that Manchester City defender, Abbie McManus, could make her debut.
