England marched through to the Second Qualifying Round of the UEFA Under-19 Championships with a 3-1 win against Slovakia at Bury.
However they needed to come from behind after Slovakia took a fifth minute lead when Dominika Skorvankova curled home a 20-yard free kick.
Two minutes later, England were back on level terms with Laura Coombs slotting home from a good pass by Isobel Christiansen.
Coombs then added her second goal midway through the first half and Christiansen completed the scoring a minute before half time with a header from a corner.
Scotland also progress to the next phase after running out 5-1 winners over group hosts Bulgaria in Dobrich.
Ironically they also went behind to an early goal, scored by Velina Koshuleva, but likewise they responded quickly by levelling four minutes later with a goal from Rebecca Dempster.
Four minutes into the second half, Jenna Ross put Scotland ahead for the first time and they crowned the victory with three goals in the last eight minutes.
Dempster found the net again with Lisa Evans adding a fourth, before Dempster went on to complete her hat-trick in the dying minutes.
Wales bounced back from their opening defeat to score five without reply against Moldova and rekindle their hopes of qualification.
Mikaela Welford gave them a 13th minute lead which was soon doubled by an own goal from Inna Culooglo and further goals came from Lisa Bird and Sharla Passiarello before half time. Sarah Adams wrapped up the win with the fifth goal, ten minutes into the second half.
Wales still have a chance of going through but will probably have to beat hosts Denmark in their final game to ensure they do so.
