England and Ukraine make history at Mundialito…
England and Ukraine made history by stepping on the sand for the first ever match in the Women’s Mundialito. The name of the beach where it was played (Beach of the English) was sort of a summary of what the game was.
The only goal to separate the two teams at the end of the first period was scored by goalkeeper Haughton.
England would make it 3-0 through James and Molly Clark before Tykhonova cut the distance to score Ukraine’s first goal.
But the Lionesses kept their focus and Barron, Short extended the lead before Molly Clark’ dressed up the goalkeeper kit in the final minutes of the game and score a screamer that put the final result in 6-1 favourable to England.
