The Manchester City star has turned 50th international goal with Beth Mead sacking FOUR followed by a hat trick from Ella Toone and Georgia Stanway’s brace.

White said: “I’m happy to have reached this milestone, but for me it’s all about winning and winning for the team.

“I love playing for England and I will do everything I can to contribute in any way to playing for my country.

“I know it’s my job to score goals but I want the team to win and the three points so we can qualify for the World Cup.

“I’m very blessed to have played with phenomenal players in England.

“Kelly Smith, to name just one, Rachel Yankey, Sue Smith and Fara Williams.

“I feel lucky to have been able to be on the pitch with this talent and currently in a squad where I look around and just say to myself, ‘Wow’.

Wiegman added: “We wanted to create a lot of chances and score a lot of goals and not concede, so that’s what we did.

“I’m impressed with how we scored the goals and I think we can be even more ruthless.”

The result was a third 10-0 away win for England in World Cup qualifiers before a 3-1 defeat by Austria in Group D against Northern Ireland.

It was just three minutes before England registered their first set when Mead shot a Hemps drive and cross into the box from six yards out.
