England made a confident start to their UEFA Under-19 Championships First Qualifying Round group with a 4-0 victory over Belarus at Rochdale.
Scotland also opened up with a win, 2-0 against Northern Ireland, but Wales crashed to a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Bosnia-Herzegovina despite an excellent start to their game.
It took eight minutes for England, the reigning Champions, to open the scoring via an own goal from Viktoryia Bundziukova who diverted a Jordan Nobbs cross into her own net after the Sunderland midfielder had latched onto a long ball by Lucy Bronze.
Toni Duggan twice went close with efforts either side of half time before the second came midway through the second half as Jessica Holbrook, minutes after coming on as a substitute, let fly with an effort from 25 yards which went in off the post.
Holbrook then scored a superb individual goal, beating three opponents before producing a neat finish and Demi Stokes completed the win in injury time with an angled shot.
Scotland meanwhile made a confident start to their campaign and two first half goals carried them to victory against Northern Ireland in their opening game in Bulgaria.
Rebecca Dempster opened the scoring for Shelley Kerr's side midway through the first half and Lisa Evans added the second goal, two minutes ahead of the interval.
Wales could not have made a better start to their opening group match against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Denmark as they stormed into a two-goal lead inside the first five minutes.
Ellie Davies put them in front with barely a minute on the clock and Lisa Bird doubled their advantage soon afterwards but a Lidija Kulis hat-trick ensured that Bosnia were in front on the half hour.
Amela Krzo added a fourth ahead of the interval, before Kulis went on to complete a five-goal haul with a further two strikes in the second half.
