England Women edge past Portugal to ease pressure on Phil Neville

8 October 2019

Beth Mead was gifted the only goal as England Women secured their first victory in six matches with a 1-0 friendly win in Portugal.

Arsenal forward Mead pounced on a howler from Portugal goalkeeper Patricia Morais midway through the second half to clinch the Lionesses’ long-awaited win and ease the pressure on boss Phil Neville.

England lost to the USA in the World Cup finals last summer and since their third-place play-off defeat to Sweden they have drawn in Belgium and been beaten by Norway and Brazil.
