England net 11 to claim the ticket to the European Games
With the last ticket to the 2023 European Games in Krakow for grabs, England and Czech Republic went head-to-head on the sands of Cagliari.
A stunning bicycle kick from Molly Clark opened the count for the Lionesses with less than two minutes played. Sarah Kempson extended the lead and Katie James assisted Anne Meiwald who put England 3-0 up before Jungova pulled one back for the Czechs.
The second period came, and so did a second goal for Molly Clark with a shot on the turn. Wendy Martin took her chance in front of goal to score England’s fifth and Jana Cervenakova added her name to the scoresheet too.
The third period was the most productive in terms of goals for both teams, with England steaming ahead on the scoreboard with goals from James (2), Meiwald (2), Kempson and Martin, while Culova and Cervenakova found the net for the Czech Republic. The final result of 11-4 qualified England for the 2023 European Games.
