England Under-17 got off to a winning start in their opening UEFA Under-17 Elite Qualifying Round group match, beating Serbia 3-1 in Ellera.
Lois Fidler's side were given the perfect start as Katie Wilkinson gave them the lead after five minutes. The teams exchanged efforts on goal with England narrowly having the better of things but they took a firm grip on the game in first half injury time as Wilkinson scored her second goal.
Midway through the second half, Serbia renewed hopes of a fightback when Ana Popov pulled a goal back from a free kick and the game was back in the balance once again.
However in the sixth minute of injury time, England made the game safe with a third goal, substitute Freda Ayisi securing the points.
The other match in the group saw Holland open up with a 2-0 victory over group hosts Italy.
England's next opponents will be Italy on Saturday afternoon and they finish up their group matches next Tuesday when they take on Holland.
England: Mary Earps, Lara Fay, Alex Greenwood (sub Leigh-Anne Robe 80mins), Elizabeth Ince (sub Freda Ayisi 74mins), Hannah Short, Kirsty Linnett, Katie Wilkinson, Bianca Bragg, Danielle Carter, Nikita Parris, Lucy Gunton-Jones. Subs not used: Tatiana Saunders, Phoebe Richards, Chloe Dale, Jade Bailey, Sherry McCue.
