Lauren Hemp’s first-half strike was the difference but the narrow scoreline did not tell the full story of England’s Nations League victory. This was a more familiar England performance, one closer to what we have come to expect under Sarina Wiegman, as opposed to the ones they produced last month.
The Lionesses played with a swagger befitting their title of European champions, securing a first clean sheet since the World Cup last-16 game against Nigeria and a win that moved them level with the Netherlands on six points. Only the group winner will progress to the knockout stage and edge closer to securing a place in the Paris Olympics next summer.
