Debutants score in England friendly win in Austria

Chioma Ubogagu plays her club football for Australian side Brisbane Roar, on loan from American team Orlando Pride

Debutants Chioma Ubogagu and Georgia Stanway both scored to help England women to a routine friendly win over Austria women in Vienna.

Substitute Rachel Daly added a third late on as a dominant England extended their unbeaten run to eight matches.

Boss Phil Neville named an inexperienced line-up and London-born Ubogagu, who represented the United States at under-23 level before choosing to play for England, slotted in from six yards after good work from England stand-in captain Toni Duggan.

Substitute Nikita Parris headed against the post shortly after coming on and then set up Manchester City team-mate Stanway, who shot into the roof of the net for the second.

Daly’s goal sealed the victory when she flicked Karen Carney’s strike into the net after another substitute, Chloe Kelly, had twice been denied.

Austria’s best chance fell to Nicole Billa but Mary Earps pushed her 25-yard shot onto the post in the first half.

The result means Neville’s side have only lost one of their 11 matches in 2018 – and that defeat came back in March with a 1-0 loss to world champions USA in the SheBelieves Cup.
