Report: England 1 – 0 Bosnia & Herzegovina

England beat Bosnia & Herzegovina in their second UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 qualifier at Ashton Gate. 

England make it two out of two in their Euro qualifiers after a strong performance by the Lionesses in front of a nearly full Ashton Gate.

The first-half of the game saw England dominate proceedings but couldn't find an opening to score.

Goal attempts came from Clarke, Nobbs and Aluko but Bosnia's defence didn't let up. The visitors threw everything they had to defend their goal in the first-half and keeper Hodzic worked hard to keep a clean sheet.

At half-time the game remained goaless after England had the bulk of possession with the ball barley getting out of the home team's half.

Both teams made no changes at half-time and England started strongly in the second-half with a good effort from Nobbs but Hodzic was behind it all the way and soon squashed the attempt.

England made the first changes with Scott replacing Clarke and Duggan replacing Christiansen.

England were finally rewarded for their patience with a header by substitute Scott which went straight to the back of the net.

England’s Captain Houghton was replaced by former Bristol Academy's Rose for her England debut.
