Welcome to Bristol, the lionesses are coming home. The Euro 2017

:00:49.:00:56.

qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina is their first match on

:00:57.:00:59.

these homes shores since April and a lot has happened since then.

:01:00.:01:11.

COMMENTATOR: Maybe Bronze will, oh, yes, absolute belter. Taylor could

:01:12.:01:13.

be in here. Can she finished here, Jodie Taylor? Yes, she has! Oh,

:01:14.:01:21.

brilliantly done, 1-1. Into the penalty area, it's off the bar!

:01:22.:01:29.

Williams, as cool as you like, she's done it again. England lead Germany.

:01:30.:01:38.

She's scored! Magical start for England. Good goalkeeping. Well

:01:39.:01:51.

done, Karen Bardsley. Yes, Thursday night's goalless draw was another

:01:52.:01:55.

landmark for these history makers and prove that their World Cup

:01:56.:01:58.

third-place play-off win against Germany wasn't a fluke. Now

:01:59.:02:02.

attention turns to another major competition and with me to see how

:02:03.:02:05.

England start off their home campaign, two players who have

:02:06.:02:09.

appeared in the European champions final, Kelly Smith and Rachel

:02:10.:02:13.

Brownfield at either end of the pitch in the 2009 final defeat

:02:14.:02:16.

against Germany. Great to have you with us. Kelly, what will it be like

:02:17.:02:22.

for England appearing in front of a home crowd after achieving so much

:02:23.:02:26.

this summer? They will want to perform for the home crowd who have

:02:27.:02:29.

travelled here before, coming off the Olympics, winning the Bronze

:02:30.:02:34.

medal. They probably look to see when the home game in England is, to

:02:35.:02:38.

look and perform and get the fans on board again. Really looking forward

:02:39.:02:43.

to it. They've had to wait a while, Rachel, what are the expectations?

:02:44.:02:49.

Have they changed? The crowd are expecting goals, which is fantastic,

:02:50.:02:53.

but in tournaments, England are expecting to win it. In-house, but

:02:54.:02:58.

also the media as well. There will be presentations to a number of

:02:59.:03:02.

players from Uefa marking their achievement. You have picked up

:03:03.:03:07.

yours, how did it feel? A massive achievement to get one cap, let

:03:08.:03:14.

alone 117. Going on the field, someone missing but it is an honour

:03:15.:03:18.

to represent your country and something I hold dear for ever.

:03:19.:03:24.

Congratulations. Some way to go to reach the landmark, Steph Houghton,

:03:25.:03:27.

but after England's World Cup exploits she is a household name and

:03:28.:03:31.

has been telling us how she is adjusting to her higher profile.

:03:32.:03:38.

COMMENTATOR: Making a run to the far post, Houghton, its income 1-1!

:03:39.:03:44.

Absolutely fantastic. When you need someone to step up, you're counting,

:03:45.:03:52.

that's a big goal. -- your captain. A delayed hell coming but how

:03:53.:03:55.

excited are you playing in front of your home crowd again? It will be a

:03:56.:04:01.

number Liverpool atmosphere. Through the World Cup we were always hearing

:04:02.:04:05.

about how much support we had at home, and the reception we got at

:04:06.:04:09.

Heathrow was fantastic. The messages ever since. Long time coming, but

:04:10.:04:14.

hopefully the girls will get the reception they deserve for our

:04:15.:04:20.

success in Canada. One two, three! What was it like, coming home? It

:04:21.:04:26.

was a little bit surreal, it took a while to set in. Breakfast with

:04:27.:04:30.

Prince William, going to Downing Street, meeting a certain David

:04:31.:04:34.

Beckham. It is one of those weeks where you think, oh my God, have I

:04:35.:04:39.

just done that? Are you now recognised more? Yes, ever since

:04:40.:04:46.

we've come back, me and Kirby, doing a food shop, going to the car,

:04:47.:04:54.

somebody in a white van driving past shouting "Karen, how is your eye?"

:04:55.:05:00.

Not shouting well done, but how is Yeray! He said it was OK. -- how is

:05:01.:05:12.

your eye. You had a little chat group on WhatsApp when you are in

:05:13.:05:15.

the World Cup and are you still as close? Yes, the WhatsApp group was

:05:16.:05:21.

going wild and we still have it on our phone, it is important to check

:05:22.:05:25.

in with each other and make sure we are as tight as a group when new

:05:26.:05:31.

players coming to the squad. As cool as you like, the deadlock has been

:05:32.:05:37.

broken and England lead Germany. So, as the best European team in the

:05:38.:05:41.

World Cup, that sounds good, doesn't it, how are you coping with

:05:42.:05:47.

expectations and how will you cope? I believe that as captain we can go

:05:48.:05:50.

all the way, the more we went on in each game, the momentum and belief,

:05:51.:05:57.

you could see it and feel it. Now, of course we've got expectations,

:05:58.:06:02.

but only from us inside the camp. But from outside, many teams want to

:06:03.:06:06.

beat us, try and use the pressure in a good way. Now, Steph and the team

:06:07.:06:12.

is focused on getting to the European Championships in Holland

:06:13.:06:15.

and they made a pretty decent start, thrashing Estonia 8-0 in

:06:16.:06:19.

their opening qualifier in September. The other teams in the

:06:20.:06:25.

group have played more than one game all but England can go top with a

:06:26.:06:30.

big victory today. The group winners and the best six runners-up will go

:06:31.:06:34.

through. Rachel, qualifying is surely a formality? Absolutely,

:06:35.:06:39.

they've talked about setting their sights high, winning the tournament.

:06:40.:06:43.

You can't be complacent but Mark Sampson has had the flexibility to

:06:44.:06:47.

change to date and I still think they will put out a convincing

:06:48.:06:50.

performance and come away with the win. First game for England at

:06:51.:06:56.

home, they will want to press, will it be attacking football? Yes,

:06:57.:07:04.

coming after the 0-0 draw in Germany, I expect to see goals

:07:05.:07:09.

today. Bosnia are not that good, but I think some good, attacking

:07:10.:07:14.

movement. When you're playing a team who are less good you have to get on

:07:15.:07:18.

the ball, be confident, be brave and score goals that's important, three

:07:19.:07:24.

points and the goals. The fans who have turned up are expecting to see

:07:25.:07:28.

plenty of goals as well. Scotland are underway in their home qualifier

:07:29.:07:31.

against Macedonia and we will bring you action from half-time. Right

:07:32.:07:39.

now, our commentators, Sue Smith is alongside Dominic Pierce.

:07:40.:07:43.

COMMENTATOR: That afternoon from Ashton Gate on a wretched, windy

:07:44.:07:47.

afternoon in Bristol as the French officials lead out the two teams for

:07:48.:07:52.

England's homecoming, a special welcome for the World Cup

:07:53.:07:57.

medallists. We have seen players who pass 100 caps, playing a leading

:07:58.:08:00.

role in the remarkable rise of English women's football to such an

:08:01.:08:03.

extent that they are the favourites to land a thumping victory to match

:08:04.:08:07.

those of their World Cup qualifying results. 23 consecutive clean sheets

:08:08.:08:17.

in home qualifiers, 44 matches unbeaten in World Cup and European

:08:18.:08:21.

Championship qualifiers. Bosnia, we expect, will be physical and

:08:22.:08:24.

stubborn with ten behind the ball, a high line. Mind you, that could be

:08:25.:08:30.

suicidal against England's pace going forwards. They started

:08:31.:08:37.

qualifying matches here in spectacular style. Mark Sampson,

:08:38.:08:43.

homecoming for him as well. At Bristol Academy he took them to two

:08:44.:08:53.

FA Cup finals. On the other side of the city, the

:08:54.:08:56.

FA Cup finals. On the other side of the city. The two teams line up.

:08:57.:09:02.

England in white in front of the stand named after a former Bristol

:09:03.:09:09.

City chairman from the 60s and 70s. There will be another presentation

:09:10.:09:22.

that will be made. That will be the chairman of the FA's women's board.

:09:23.:09:38.

June Scott. Fara Williams, also getting a presentation. Jill is

:09:39.:09:44.

there with her nephews, Charlie and Dempster, very special to her.

:09:45.:09:49.

Passing 100 caps in the 1-0 victory over Australia last month. Williams,

:09:50.:10:02.

her special presentation from Sue Hough. No one has played more

:10:03.:10:08.

international games for England and Williams. She has an injury, she is

:10:09.:10:18.

on the bench today. So, special presentations. A day of emotions.

:10:19.:10:29.

Another special player, Sue. Yes, of course. Katie Stoney, Fara Williams

:10:30.:10:33.

and the other players who were mentioned earlier. I think reaching

:10:34.:10:39.

one cap for your country... But reaching over 100, exceptional. It

:10:40.:10:45.

is Uefa policy for all players who reach 100 caps to get a special

:10:46.:10:54.

presentation. The FA Chief Executive Officer, Martin Glenn, is scheduled

:10:55.:11:02.

to present the award. Jill Scott! She walks with Charlie and Dempster.

:11:03.:11:11.

There he is. What a World Cup she had, she was a star in Canada.

:11:12.:11:15.

That's right, she was a household name. Jill Scott always performs

:11:16.:11:20.

well on the big stage. Sometimes he goes unrecognised but in the World

:11:21.:11:23.

Cup she seemed to step up to the mark and she had an excellent

:11:24.:11:26.

tournament. Great to see her progressing and getting better. We

:11:27.:11:32.

will pause for the anthems, head of England against Bosnia and

:11:33.:11:35.

Herzegovina. European Championship qualifier.

:11:36.:11:47.

The women's international side for 18 years, Bosnia and Herzegovina, a

:11:48.:12:51.

fairway behind England in developer and of the women's game, it has to

:12:52.:12:53.

be said. # God save our gracious Queen

:12:54.:12:56.

Long live our noble Queen Karen Bardsley, the England

:12:57.:13:40.

goalkeeper, who had such a good World Cup, playing against Germany

:13:41.:13:48.

on Thursday. Seven changes. Bardsley was excellent. Coming in, Amy

:13:49.:13:52.

Turner, who played in the qualifying win in Estonia, 8-0. Stoney, over

:13:53.:14:02.

100 caps. Laura Bassett, one of the stars of the summer, getting her

:14:03.:14:05.

first international of the campaign. Gemma Davison coming in after a

:14:06.:14:12.

title winning campaign and Eni Aluko, expecting her to score today

:14:13.:14:16.

and also Christiansen, who came on in Germany having scored in Estonia.

:14:17.:14:25.

Let's have a look at Bosnia and Herzegovina, one change from their

:14:26.:14:31.

1-0 victory in Serbia. A defensive change, the centre-back coming in on

:14:32.:14:45.

the left-hand side, the -- Dijakovic. They also managed by the

:14:46.:14:51.

national coach, Samira Hurem. Nicolette Scott -- Nikolic scored a

:14:52.:15:00.

hat-trick in an earlier match but they won't be looking for that here.

:15:01.:15:05.

Yes, England against Germany was a defensive test, how could they cope

:15:06.:15:08.

with the attacking players but today it's all about attacking and

:15:09.:15:11.

creating things and making things happen. I expect Bosnia to sit back

:15:12.:15:17.

and defend and make it difficult for England to break them down. A

:15:18.:15:22.

feature of the last World Cup qualifying campaign was how they

:15:23.:15:27.

started against Belarus, 6-0, and against Turkey, 8-0, and against

:15:28.:15:35.

Wales, which was a close game. The opening 15 minutes, crucial for

:15:36.:15:38.

England to get into their stride. It is, they need to start on the front

:15:39.:15:43.

foot. I know that it is a term that football managers use, but they have

:15:44.:15:47.

to press high, win the ball, I expect them to have five or six

:15:48.:15:52.

players going forwards at times. The England players in a huddle. Stoney,

:15:53.:16:00.

leading the chat. So experienced. Played in the European finals in

:16:01.:16:08.

2009 and 2013. On the bench through the finals in 2005. Steph Houghton,

:16:09.:16:15.

a natural leader. That's why she's picked as captain of the site by the

:16:16.:16:19.

manager. Ambitious to do well. Leading the team very well in

:16:20.:16:24.

Canada. She really did, there are a few leaders in the team, Laura

:16:25.:16:29.

Bassett and others, they have experience, and youth coming through

:16:30.:16:35.

who can help them out. The referee, from France. Finally getting the

:16:36.:16:42.

teams together, reaching the halfway line. England will kick off and get

:16:43.:16:46.

us under way, from left to right, towards the old east end, which used

:16:47.:16:53.

to be an old covered stand here. Now part of the rejuvenated Ashton Gate.

:16:54.:17:01.

A pause, a bit of quiet. A good turnout on a horrible winter date.

:17:02.:17:11.

England will kick-off their home European Championship qualifying

:17:12.:17:14.

campaign. Immediately looking for Jess Clarke. She has pace to burn.

:17:15.:17:21.

Also hungry to do well for England having been left out of the squad

:17:22.:17:26.

for Canada. Played a role in qualifying from the bench. Bosnia

:17:27.:17:34.

getting it away as far as Houghton. 66 caps for the captain today.

:17:35.:17:44.

Stokes came through to the team in a major way in qualifying for the

:17:45.:17:49.

World Cup but didn't make the finals what. Played left-sided midfield in

:17:50.:17:58.

Germany in the week. -- final squad. Christiansen trying to press high.

:17:59.:18:06.

In the final third, it is cleared away by Amira Spahic. Her club team

:18:07.:18:15.

are eight points clear at the top in Bosnia-Herzegovina even though they

:18:16.:18:17.

have played one game fewer. Confident side.

:18:18.:18:35.

Bassett, she was touched by the messages of goodwill after the

:18:36.:18:42.

semifinal own goal against Japan. The nation rallied behind her. They

:18:43.:18:46.

really did and she really appreciated it. She wants 2015 to be

:18:47.:18:53.

over although she had a fantastic World Cup, although Chi scored an

:18:54.:18:56.

own goal and was sent off controversially in the cup final.

:18:57.:19:04.

She will start fresh in 2016. What a mentally strong player she is.

:19:05.:19:09.

England with Eni Aluko. Christiansen. The first corner of

:19:10.:19:11.

the day. England in an interesting group on

:19:12.:19:23.

the edge of the penalty area, look at that little huddle. Their set

:19:24.:19:28.

pieces were a feature of Canada 2015. Using Lucy Bronze so well. She

:19:29.:19:36.

isn't playing today, she has a knock and she wasn't risked for this.

:19:37.:19:40.

Stoney is trying to get away from her marker. Headed on. Stoney was

:19:41.:19:48.

really being impeded and held back. It looped up and over. Certainly

:19:49.:19:58.

Radeljic was hanging on. It was like a rugby tackle, really stopping

:19:59.:20:03.

Stoney's run. You can see she has a go at the official, to be aware of

:20:04.:20:08.

it. That is what they will do, physically trying to prevent England

:20:09.:20:10.

from getting any opportunity in the area. She got away in the end.

:20:11.:20:18.

Bosnia-Herzegovina have a free kick now. Hadzic, another one of those

:20:19.:20:30.

players from that club team. Nikolic scoring the winner in their previous

:20:31.:20:33.

game, expected to be the main danger. Tall and rangy and will be

:20:34.:20:38.

the target of the free kick with the orange boots. Skip away, a bit of a

:20:39.:20:42.

slip and a slide. Had a great spell late in the first

:20:43.:20:54.

half on Thursday, when she started to dictate play. Has a great engine.

:20:55.:21:10.

It wasn't a good ball out. Not cleared very well. Davison, what a

:21:11.:21:20.

season she had with Chelsea. Title cup winner, eight goals for Chelsea

:21:21.:21:25.

this season. Winning the league at Liverpool and Arsenal as well.

:21:26.:21:31.

England are looking to breakthrough Manchester City's Nobbs. Away by the

:21:32.:21:40.

Bosnian captain. Following up, Amy Turner of Notts County. That's a

:21:41.:21:44.

free kick. Turner, the fourth International for her. Made her

:21:45.:21:49.

debut in March against Australia. I'm pleased for Amy Turner that she

:21:50.:21:53.

has a chance at right back. She played that in the cup final and I

:21:54.:21:57.

think Mark Sampson was watching. She was probably mocks County's best

:21:58.:22:02.

defender. -- Notts County. Having a chance to show what she can do in

:22:03.:22:09.

front of the home crowd. Mark Sampson, hails from across the River

:22:10.:22:13.

Severn in South Wales. He was at Swansea in the Academy. When Roberto

:22:14.:22:20.

Martinez was at Swansea. A powerful header. Back through from Aleksic.

:22:21.:22:35.

Half chance for Davison to turn and run. Christiansen looking for her.

:22:36.:22:48.

Given away by Hasanbegovic. You can see that Bosnia are all in the home

:22:49.:22:53.

half, defending. Coming off the head of Melissa Hasanbegovic, the

:22:54.:22:55.

20-year-old centre-back. England have a corner. There they go again,

:22:56.:23:04.

getting into the huddle. What's that all about? Just saying which corner

:23:05.:23:10.

they are going to do. Christiansen goes over there, they have a word.

:23:11.:23:16.

They trained this in numerous occasions, they have suddenly

:23:17.:23:22.

players to aim for. Stoney, Holton, Bassett and Turner. They are all

:23:23.:23:28.

very good in the air -- Houghton. On the edge of the box, Houghton,

:23:29.:23:37.

trying to slip her marker. Squirmed away, I think it was says leader who

:23:38.:23:48.

got it away. -- Seslija. Hodzic dived on it. Came through into the

:23:49.:23:57.

side against Serbia. She was on the bench for the early qualifiers.

:23:58.:24:01.

There is the courage. Played herself for her country -- the coach. Her

:24:02.:24:12.

club team were the European champions in club football, as a

:24:13.:24:20.

player. Kulis, playing at left-back. Not a great deal is known about the

:24:21.:24:25.

Bosnian national team. Fairly secretive about their details.

:24:26.:24:33.

Labelling attackers who are in fact defenders. Little chip towards the

:24:34.:24:39.

Bosnian penalty area, headed away by Aleksic. Smashed out by Seslija, who

:24:40.:24:49.

has moved to Minnesota in 2006 as a young girl and came back in 2010.

:24:50.:24:54.

She has gone back again, leaving her family behind. Nobbs. Driving on.

:24:55.:25:09.

The challenge on her from Hadzic. Stoney played against Colombia in

:25:10.:25:14.

the World Cup, one start in three appearances. She settled everything

:25:15.:25:18.

down in the game from the start. Stoney is such an experienced

:25:19.:25:21.

player, so good on the ball, technically very good. I'm actually

:25:22.:25:26.

really pleased that she is starting today. She deserves this. I think

:25:27.:25:31.

it's important for us to say that Bosnia-Herzegovina are a step up the

:25:32.:25:36.

ladder from the likes of Belarus who were beaten 6-0 in the qualifiers,

:25:37.:25:44.

and Turkey. A higher quality team. They have beaten Serbia and Estonia.

:25:45.:25:47.

Certainly good enough to finish in the top three in the group, it

:25:48.:25:51.

should be between England and Belgium. Yeah, I think so. A step

:25:52.:25:58.

behind England. They are not coming here to score goals, they are here

:25:59.:26:02.

to sit back and defend and limits the number of goals that England

:26:03.:26:05.

score. Not committing any players forwards. Euro 2017.

:26:06.:26:21.

Davison, a good run. Leaving the full-back behind. Edge of the

:26:22.:26:26.

penalty area. Going down fairly easily there. Finding Davison. A

:26:27.:26:39.

little backheel. Stokes, the crowd loved that one. Not file off a full

:26:40.:26:49.

house here, looking around. A chance for Bassett, playing it to Nobbs.

:26:50.:26:55.

Goes for gold! Fubar! Saved by the goalkeeper. Clarke blocked at the

:26:56.:27:04.

near post, somehow kept out. I have no idea how that didn't go in, I

:27:05.:27:08.

don't think the goalkeeper got a touch on it but what a strike from

:27:09.:27:13.

Nobbs. I thought it had gone in and Christiansen came in to get the

:27:14.:27:16.

rebound but she couldn't get there. I would like to see if the

:27:17.:27:20.

goalkeeper got a touch on that. Aleksic blocked the second one.

:27:21.:27:25.

Nobbs has it in her mind, as soon as she gets the ball. Still can't see

:27:26.:27:29.

she got a touch on it. I think she tipped it onto the bar. Jordan Nobbs

:27:30.:27:37.

shapes up and she got a touch, that's a good save from the

:27:38.:27:42.

goalkeeper. Christiansen is alert but that's a double save. England,

:27:43.:27:49.

close to taking the lead. We've already seen what the pace of

:27:50.:27:53.

Davison can do. A director run. Carrying on. The challenge was by

:27:54.:28:04.

Aleksic. At the moment, Aleksic, Spahic and Hasanbegovic are playing

:28:05.:28:10.

as a back three. Starting with Amira Spahic, the number four, playing in

:28:11.:28:13.

deep midfield but she has gone centre-back. Very much aid free with

:28:14.:28:21.

the wingbacks, Seslija and Kulis on each side. A kind of dummy formation

:28:22.:28:28.

going on, in the opening five or six minutes as if to try and fool

:28:29.:28:31.

England, but England expected them to do this. They also have Radeljic

:28:32.:28:39.

as a full-back, tracking the run of Amy Turner. Exactly as England

:28:40.:28:44.

thought it would be. Ten behind the ball. Definitely, so hard to play

:28:45.:28:50.

against teams like that, you have to move the ball quickly. As soon as

:28:51.:28:56.

they get the ball, they knew. Bending, the right foot, but into

:28:57.:29:04.

the arms of Hodzic. Trying to curb it. That's what they do, as soon as

:29:05.:29:11.

they get a stiff, they try and close down -- get a sniff. Six years after

:29:12.:29:20.

her debut for England, making the European finals that year. 2013 and

:29:21.:29:29.

in World Cup 11. A very good season, 15 goals. I think it was a very good

:29:30.:29:37.

campaign actually for Notts County, two finals. I know they didn't win

:29:38.:29:44.

them. She will work. I think the fact she was left out of the World

:29:45.:29:48.

Cup squad, she came back and played so well for her club and was

:29:49.:29:51.

rewarded with another England call-up. She was my roommate for a

:29:52.:29:58.

good number of years, so I know her very well, Jess. The brightest

:29:59.:30:04.

person on the pitch, she sees the game very well. The freaks -- she

:30:05.:30:12.

speaks very highly of you as well! A free kick for Bosnia-Herzegovina.

:30:13.:30:17.

Their results so far in the competition, mixed, thrashed away at

:30:18.:30:23.

Belgium, 6-0, and at home, 5-0. Winning at home against Estonia, 4-0

:30:24.:30:25.

and getting a win against Serbia. Dijakovic, in the number two shirt.

:30:26.:30:57.

Her first international. Just see the shape there again. Throwing

:30:58.:31:02.

bodies behind the ball. With Jess Clarke on this side, she is trying

:31:03.:31:07.

to stretch the game and hope that touchline. Jemma Davidson, because

:31:08.:31:12.

she is a natural right foot playing on the left, she is coming in field

:31:13.:31:25.

a bit more. When you have a back five or a back seven like you have

:31:26.:31:30.

here, you cannot get in front. You have to get in behind. England need

:31:31.:31:36.

to make sure they stay patient and calm, and stick to the game plan.

:31:37.:31:42.

That is what Mark has told them to do. A late challenge their from

:31:43.:32:10.

Dijakovic. And own goal in the defeat to Belgium, from Dijakovic.

:32:11.:32:19.

She just miss timed it. Christiansen will take the free kicks from over

:32:20.:32:21.

there, and the corners. There is a wicked wind here today.

:32:22.:32:37.

Very unpredictable. It isn't going to help things.

:32:38.:32:49.

Many people made a comment about your hair in this wind!

:32:50.:33:00.

Aluko had a frustrating World Cup. She started, and then had a

:33:01.:33:14.

substitutes role. It wasn't the World Cup she hoped for. Yes. She

:33:15.:33:18.

was frustrated so she will be pleased to get a start again. If

:33:19.:33:24.

Bosnia had played a high line, that would have been perfect for Aluko.

:33:25.:33:31.

13 goals in World Cup qualifying. Chelsea striker. Very intelligent. A

:33:32.:33:41.

law degree. Do all international England players have degrees? In

:33:42.:33:47.

every day and every day, getting better and better. I have a sports

:33:48.:33:51.

science degree, I'll have you know! She is playing well. This saved from

:33:52.:34:10.

Jordan Nobbs early on, and that is a good take, with players around her.

:34:11.:34:16.

It's difficult. Continues to impress me. When you are in the dressing

:34:17.:34:25.

room with former England international is from the men's

:34:26.:34:34.

team, they are always so delighted to see Sue. And officials from other

:34:35.:34:37.

countries as well. You must be very proud. I was waiting for a joke to

:34:38.:34:42.

come then! Davison has started well. Carrying

:34:43.:34:58.

it into the heart of the Bosnia-Herzegovina half, and

:34:59.:35:06.

creating danger. Gemma Davison is 1 of the best one-on-one attackers

:35:07.:35:10.

that I know on the league. Why, when she made her debut in 2009 against

:35:11.:35:16.

Iceland, she has only played in her eighth game for England? It's crazy.

:35:17.:35:24.

She didn't have the best relationship with Hope Powell. I'm

:35:25.:35:28.

not sure why. Mark Sampson has brought her back in and she is

:35:29.:35:34.

showing what she can do. As a winger, a wide player, she isolates

:35:35.:35:39.

defenders and beats them with ease. Taking the free kick, bending into

:35:40.:35:48.

the penalty area. It deflected off Yakob itch, who finally clears it

:35:49.:35:49.

away. -- of Dijakovic. I Hodzic is really on top of her

:35:50.:36:26.

game. She is very good in the air. She is coming to claim crosses. So

:36:27.:36:31.

the crosses need to be a little bit better. Aluko in there, with her

:36:32.:36:43.

pace, will get on the end of things. England bench there, with the

:36:44.:36:47.

substitutes behind Mark Sampson. They will be saying goodbye to the

:36:48.:36:52.

sports scientist for the team, and Bill Worrell, the video analyst for

:36:53.:37:03.

several years. Just wide by Aluko. That is the cross I was talking

:37:04.:37:08.

about. Just needs to be whipped in. Good play by Nobbs. Jordan Nobbs

:37:09.:37:14.

just whips it in, just behind the defence. Aluko a good run. Should

:37:15.:37:19.

have done better with her finish. Gambled and got in to the near post

:37:20.:37:28.

area. That is what you want from your striker, that instinct, to see

:37:29.:37:34.

whether ball is going. It's just that finish at the end. Good run by

:37:35.:37:36.

Hadzic. A rare touch so far by Karen Barton.

:37:37.:38:34.

I don't think she's going to get too many touches on the ball! On the

:38:35.:38:39.

other end, though, the goalkeeper is in fine form. Karen is running up

:38:40.:38:46.

and down and trying to keep herself warm and keep alert. It is difficult

:38:47.:38:50.

for the goalkeeper, when you are not involved in the game, and then you

:38:51.:38:55.

have to pull off a save. She'll be fine, though.

:38:56.:39:09.

Is that a sign of some England frustration? They are going to be

:39:10.:39:17.

frustrated. It is tough when a team sits back and all they do is defend.

:39:18.:39:22.

They are not committing players or going forward. You just have to try

:39:23.:39:27.

to keep the ball, and when you see that break or that little movement,

:39:28.:39:31.

you have to give it as quick as you can. Some of the players are just

:39:32.:39:35.

taking a bit too long with their passes, and Bosnia are cutting it

:39:36.:39:42.

out. 11 of the squad were at Euro 2013, when England were so dismal.

:39:43.:39:53.

They have so much experience. 0-0 halfway through the first half. This

:39:54.:40:00.

is reminiscent of the Wales home qualifier, laid at the New Den, if

:40:01.:40:07.

memory serves. Wales were the better team than the Bosnia-Herzegovina,

:40:08.:40:11.

and had to be patient as well. I think it will come. I think fitness

:40:12.:40:16.

will tell. The England girls are training full-time. Coming towards

:40:17.:40:22.

the second half, they just need to save -- to stay patient, and get the

:40:23.:40:29.

opportunity and take it. Bristol Rugby club also play here,

:40:30.:41:16.

of course. A rare sortie forward for Kulis. Used to be a real force in

:41:17.:41:35.

women's football, her team. SFK have been very much the dominant force in

:41:36.:41:43.

league football. A rare piece of work for Karen Bardsley. Top of the

:41:44.:42:00.

table in Croatia. Nobbs scored a couple of goals for Arsenal in the

:42:01.:42:02.

cup final. Whether England need another genuine

:42:03.:42:20.

striker upfront Scot --... That's positive from Jess Clarke.

:42:21.:42:59.

Got the ball up, and it was one-on-one probably for the first

:43:00.:43:02.

time in the 25 minutes she's been playing. She took the defender on,

:43:03.:43:10.

and won it in the corner. Again they conspire. They don't trust the hand

:43:11.:43:19.

signals, then! I haven't seen them do that before! We saw plenty from

:43:20.:43:25.

you in the World Cup finals in Canada!

:43:26.:43:35.

Into the near post, through the goalkeeper's hands.

:43:36.:43:43.

A lovely, whipped in ball. Aluko just challenged. I don't think the

:43:44.:43:52.

goalkeeper got a touch to it. Got another corner, anyway. I think they

:43:53.:43:57.

will have to produce something special to beat her. She's one of

:43:58.:44:01.

the best goalkeepers we've seen from an emerging country. She's been very

:44:02.:44:04.

good so far, the goalkeeper. I think Davison was involved in the

:44:05.:44:24.

cross. Good awareness. Christiansen takes the corner.

:44:25.:44:33.

Seven England players in there. Eight. Plenty of bodies forward,

:44:34.:44:38.

then. Aluko! Loops over. A better

:44:39.:44:52.

delivery, away from the goalkeeper. Just whips the ball in. Steph Orton

:44:53.:44:58.

does well, just directed towards goal. Aluko finds herself with lots

:44:59.:45:03.

of space, but she would have referred that to be on the floor.

:45:04.:45:08.

She has scored headed goals, but she's much better with the ball at

:45:09.:45:13.

her feet. Any Aluko is getting herself into the right positions,

:45:14.:45:19.

but needs to get them in now. What a great record of scoring in

:45:20.:45:20.

competitions. Sliced away by Nikolic, very nearly

:45:21.:45:37.

expensively. Not the best clearance. Whether she had any communication

:45:38.:45:46.

with those around her... Just shows you that they have no intention of

:45:47.:45:48.

scoring, do they? England kicking towards what used to

:45:49.:46:04.

be the old home end, the old east end.

:46:05.:46:11.

The goalkeeper had movement. Punched away. She may have got something of

:46:12.:46:22.

a clump. The positioning has been well. Maybe short corners are the

:46:23.:46:27.

right option. Bosnia-Herzegovina are not switched on. They only spend one

:46:28.:46:33.

player out. Good position from the goalkeeper. I think it might have

:46:34.:46:38.

been her own player who hit her on the head. A delayed reaction. I

:46:39.:46:43.

think she will be fine. She's had a really good start to this game. She

:46:44.:46:50.

was not the first choice at the beginning of the competition. She

:46:51.:46:53.

came into the squad at the beginning of the week for Serena Hurem --

:46:54.:47:02.

Samira Hurem, the coach. I think they have done very well. Organised

:47:03.:47:08.

and determined, England frustrated. A little Conference going on with

:47:09.:47:15.

the England players. This is where she just tries to punch the ball

:47:16.:47:20.

away. I think it is her own defender who hits her on the back of the

:47:21.:47:27.

head, or the ear. A bit of a Sunday sore head. Rub a little bit of cream

:47:28.:47:29.

on, you'll be OK! There you are. And it was a feature in the World

:47:30.:48:02.

Cup qualifiers in the likes of Belarus and Turkey, their

:48:03.:48:05.

goalkeepers were very good. I think it's something in the women's game

:48:06.:48:10.

that has been developing. In England it's getting better and better. You

:48:11.:48:15.

look at Karen Bardsley, Carly Telford, Chamberlain, who is injured

:48:16.:48:19.

at the moment. Mark Sampson doesn't know who to choose. Steph Houghton

:48:20.:48:26.

made a lovely comment in her interview to you, about how a white

:48:27.:48:35.

van driver asked her, how is your eye? Not, how well did you do in

:48:36.:48:43.

Canada? There's been so many stories from the girls. People have taken an

:48:44.:48:50.

interest in them. The whole thing was absolutely captivating. It was a

:48:51.:48:58.

real privilege to be there. The way it should be. England have

:48:59.:48:59.

possession now with Stokes. It is how World Cups should be as

:49:00.:49:13.

well, Sue. There was more innocents about it. I know it's not as high

:49:14.:49:19.

profile. I know the pressure isn't on like it is in the men's game, but

:49:20.:49:24.

there was less of a Fifa influence in Canada. It was a more charming

:49:25.:49:30.

World Cup experience. It was like it used to be in the old days, having

:49:31.:49:35.

had eight World Cups, I have a bit of experience of that. I can tell

:49:36.:49:43.

you the whole experience was greatly engaging.

:49:44.:49:54.

They are not interested in chasing that! Seslija comes back into her

:49:55.:50:05.

own half. This is very much a training ground exercise. You will

:50:06.:50:10.

see coaches putting this on, attack against defence, when they have a

:50:11.:50:18.

man over all two. Keep your discipline, he says. Keep your

:50:19.:50:27.

patients also Mac -- too. There's so many players around you, you have to

:50:28.:50:30.

make sure that the ball is to your feet.

:50:31.:50:42.

A really strong challenge by Q less on Christiansen. -- by Kulis.

:50:43.:51:07.

Steph Orton is a Durham girl. Missed the 2009 finals with a cruciate

:51:08.:51:18.

injury. Played on through 2013, she had an ankle problem. -- Steph

:51:19.:51:25.

Houghton. She can shoot from distance. It might take something

:51:26.:51:32.

like that. It might take an effort from that sort of range. Just a bit

:51:33.:51:38.

of brilliance, and Steph has got a great technique with her right foot.

:51:39.:51:43.

So why not have a go from there? A little bit wayward with her shot.

:51:44.:51:49.

Shot to fame in the Olympics of 2012. And a very, very good World

:51:50.:51:55.

Cup. On one or two adverts for things now. I think she was the

:51:56.:52:00.

first woman player on the front of a football magazine.

:52:01.:52:16.

Didn't used to have seats over there in the lower tier. There was a big

:52:17.:52:24.

wall, a drop-down. The first big cantilever stand in English

:52:25.:52:25.

football. The chairman was connected to

:52:26.:52:42.

Bristol City as a young man, and you revered them, I can tell you.

:52:43.:53:14.

This is where, perhaps, they need to move the ball a bit quicker.

:53:15.:53:27.

11 Bosnian players between her and the dead-ball line in the last 25

:53:28.:53:34.

metres of play. That was much better from England. They were passing the

:53:35.:53:39.

ball. Went to the right wing and then back onto the left wing. It is

:53:40.:53:44.

about switching players as much as you can, so they can't shift across.

:53:45.:53:54.

You can see that some of the England players are getting frustrated

:53:55.:53:59.

because they can't go forward. That's not what they are used to.

:54:00.:54:17.

That's long and plunging into the England penalty area.

:54:18.:54:49.

Davison well, fleetfooted. -- well-balanced.

:54:50.:55:22.

That's long and plunging into the England penalty area.

:55:23.:56:02.

The captain might think about having a go. Toni Duggan was making a run

:56:03.:56:12.

at the edge of the penalty area. That is an option off the bench for

:56:13.:56:19.

him. Jodie Turner out there on the bench today. She's got a slight

:56:20.:56:21.

injury. A wintry Sunday afternoon. Mark

:56:22.:56:57.

Sampson looking on. Marianne Spacey looking with him. Over 90 caps for

:56:58.:57:07.

England. She plays a big, big role alongside Mark Sampson, does

:57:08.:57:12.

Marianne. And the fact she has played for England, at the highest

:57:13.:57:16.

level, she's got that relationship with the players. And they really

:57:17.:57:18.

respect her, which always helps. Blocked and away by Begovic -- by

:57:19.:57:37.

Hasanbegovic. England could do with a breakthrough before the interval.

:57:38.:57:59.

Nikolic has carried well for her side. It will come back on the

:58:00.:58:08.

Bosnian defence. You wonder how long they will be able to keep this up.

:58:09.:58:18.

England players out of season now. Chelsea beaten by Wolfsburg. Davison

:58:19.:58:24.

of Chelsea, Houghton of Manchester City. They need to win silverware

:58:25.:58:26.

next season. The well-positioned Spahic got it

:58:27.:58:40.

away. She has played very well for Bosnia-Herzegovina. She has. That's

:58:41.:58:48.

better. It is that diagonal ball. You have got the pace of Davison and

:58:49.:58:55.

with Aluko spinning off. It is a case of getting that final pass. If

:58:56.:59:00.

Jess Clarke could have just found Aluko, and there was another player

:59:01.:59:04.

coming in. It could have been a chance.

:59:05.:59:45.

Safety first by Stoney. 25 yards higher. Up you go! You can just hear

:59:46.:00:12.

Mark Sampson there. The shot was deflected by Spahic. England have a

:00:13.:00:17.

corner, but more significantly, they are starting to look a lot fresher

:00:18.:00:21.

than one or two of the Bosnian players out there. It is so

:00:22.:00:26.

difficult. When you are just chasing the ball, you don't have any

:00:27.:00:30.

possession, you are just closing down. It is mentally and physically

:00:31.:00:37.

draining. Half-time cannot come soon enough for Bosnia-Herzegovina here.

:00:38.:00:44.

A crucial time for England. This ground has been developed. There is

:00:45.:00:48.

a coffee bar in there now, a sports bar and Grill. It was a hot dog

:00:49.:00:54.

stand in my day, and it wasn't very savoury!

:00:55.:01:01.

Clarke at the far post, the goalkeeper was beaten to it, beaten

:01:02.:01:08.

by the flag. Wonderful ball in, whipped in at the back post. Jess

:01:09.:01:13.

Clarke isn't bad in the air as well. Seems to miss time her jump -- miss

:01:14.:01:23.

time her jump. Not a lot. It's time to come. Nobbs. Can they get the

:01:24.:01:32.

cross in? Deflected away, England have a corner. I can't think we have

:01:33.:01:43.

more than one minute of stoppage time. A booking, no gold,

:01:44.:01:51.

substitutions, all bookings really. -- no goals.

:01:52.:02:08.

The referees having a word. I don't know what that is about, Hadzic has

:02:09.:02:26.

gone down. She's saying she got elbowed. Well, there's nothing in

:02:27.:02:32.

there at all, she was holding onto her, she didn't need to go down.

:02:33.:02:38.

Hate to see that. That's something that the women's game really prides

:02:39.:02:44.

itself on. Nowhere near. Complete playacting. One minute of stoppage

:02:45.:02:53.

time. Towards the far post and gathered by a very good goalkeeper.

:02:54.:03:00.

A more and more frustrating afternoon for England. There you

:03:01.:03:02.

have the confirmation. Your overall thoughts on the first

:03:03.:03:17.

half? Like you mentioned, a first rating afternoon, England have to

:03:18.:03:20.

stay patient, keep the ball and move the ball a bit quicker at times, use

:03:21.:03:28.

the space out wide. When they get a goal, hopefully the floodgates will

:03:29.:03:32.

open. They have had the ball and the chances but the Bosnian goalkeeper,

:03:33.:03:36.

Hodzic, is in great form, which is why it is 0-0 dill at half-time.

:03:37.:03:43.

Frustrating first half for England. Not exactly going to plan, is it? It

:03:44.:03:48.

isn't, you would expect England to be a couple of goals up. It should

:03:49.:03:56.

be a couple. For me, the key to the game is keeping Davison and Clarke

:03:57.:04:00.

white, they are coming too deep into the middle of the park which is

:04:01.:04:05.

already congested -- duping them wide -- keeping them wide. Your

:04:06.:04:12.

thoughts on the first half? Some credit to Bosnia, they have no

:04:13.:04:16.

interest in going forwards. It is like a brick wall! It is, but as

:04:17.:04:21.

Kelly said, they have two stretch the pitch, get Bosnia-Herzegovina

:04:22.:04:26.

chasing the ball, they will get tired. A bit tired, sometimes Eni

:04:27.:04:33.

Aluko has been standing on her toes. Nobbs has done the movement quite

:04:34.:04:37.

well. Stretching the pitch, creating space. The Bosnian players defending

:04:38.:04:43.

so deep, all in their own half. We should see some examples of that

:04:44.:04:48.

now. Turning off the back shoulder here. You can see how many Bosnian

:04:49.:04:52.

players there are, so congested. This is what I mean about getting

:04:53.:04:59.

players wide. We have watched her players within five yards of each

:05:00.:05:03.

other. You can't breakdown a back line of seven or eight players when

:05:04.:05:07.

you are in small space. Jordan Nobbs has done well, always checking her

:05:08.:05:14.

shoulder, looking to receive the ball and we have had some chances

:05:15.:05:18.

from distance. I think Jordan Nobbs has tried, and Christiansen on that

:05:19.:05:23.

occasion, Steph Houghton has had a go, but they are difficult to break

:05:24.:05:28.

down. Jordan Nobbs could have put them 1-0 up on ten minutes. Look how

:05:29.:05:33.

many numbers behind, so hard to play against. You need to have the

:05:34.:05:38.

numbers out wide. No chance for a shot. Eight players and then they

:05:39.:05:45.

break. Get Jemma and Jesse bit wider. It is frustrating and it will

:05:46.:05:51.

come. Keep pressing, try and win the ball but they are the key for me.

:05:52.:05:54.

Bosnia have come with a game plan and so far it has worked. Jordan

:05:55.:06:00.

Nobbs nearly put England 1-0 ahead. She did this in the Continental cup

:06:01.:06:07.

final, low back left. Probably should have headed back in,

:06:08.:06:14.

Christiansen. Clarke was close. Jordan Nobbs, no backlit, just

:06:15.:06:18.

whacked it. The goalkeeper reacts a bit late. The goal-line technology,

:06:19.:06:24.

definitely does not go in. As a former goalkeeper, I have to say

:06:25.:06:28.

credit to the goalkeeper. Reacting well to the second one as well to

:06:29.:06:36.

give Bosnia in it. -- to keep. Bosnia are ranked outside the top

:06:37.:06:42.

50. Often that implies that they goalkeeper has been very weak and in

:06:43.:06:45.

the women's game, they are the first target, but she's not even their

:06:46.:06:53.

first choice goalkeeper. She has been great and saving everything.

:06:54.:06:57.

England are playing into Bosnia's hands. She is dominating her area.

:06:58.:07:02.

She takes it comfortable it. Get the ball into the box come across it on

:07:03.:07:06.

the floor for the players coming in. You can play it like that, or you

:07:07.:07:10.

can have somebody pinning the goalkeeper, you see it domestic

:07:11.:07:15.

league, Clarke pinning the goalkeeper, not letting her have

:07:16.:07:19.

free rein. Probably freezing at the other end, Bardsley. It is difficult

:07:20.:07:26.

for the goalkeepers because it could go down the other end and it could

:07:27.:07:30.

be a goal, so she has to keep switched on. Yes, conditions don't

:07:31.:07:35.

help the goalkeepers but she must ensure she stays switched on and

:07:36.:07:40.

controls the rest of her team. Eni Aluko had a couple of chances we

:07:41.:07:45.

should be able to see. This shot is bread and butter for her, a great

:07:46.:07:50.

ball in from Jordan and Eni needs to slow down her run at open up her

:07:51.:07:55.

leg. Great ball in and it should have been a goal. A bit of composure

:07:56.:08:02.

at the end. I think here, Eni is not known for her heading prowess. She

:08:03.:08:08.

probably had time to bring it down. Having a look over your shoulder, a

:08:09.:08:12.

bit of awareness, perhaps turn and volley it. A bit of awareness and

:08:13.:08:17.

composure. Who impressed you the most in the first half? Davison was

:08:18.:08:22.

good in that she was breaking lines and she was unpredictable. She is an

:08:23.:08:28.

off-the-cuff player. She has been the difference but she can't drop

:08:29.:08:31.

deep to get on the ball because that is counter-productive. Jordan Nobbs

:08:32.:08:36.

is making the game take, trying to play forwards, trying to dictate the

:08:37.:08:40.

game and she needs to get on the ball a bit more. The other home

:08:41.:08:44.

nations will be doing all they can to qualify for Euro 2017 alongside

:08:45.:08:51.

England. Scotland seem to be doing a pretty good job so far, they are top

:08:52.:08:56.

of Group 1, level on points with the top seeds Iceland after three wins

:08:57.:09:02.

from three. They are in qualifying action against the lowest ranked

:09:03.:09:04.

team in the group, Macedonia. Expecting plenty of goals in this

:09:05.:09:15.

one. The Scots have been bossing the early exchanges, really bright start

:09:16.:09:21.

by the team in the brand-new pink shirts. Lord has crossed and

:09:22.:09:27.

dangerous, the first goal has come and no surprise, Scotland have

:09:28.:09:34.

scored it. Jane Ross, in their quickest and sharpest with the

:09:35.:09:41.

opening goal for Scotland -- there. Lauder, wreaking havoc so far on the

:09:42.:09:46.

left-hand side, Hayley Lauder. They can't contain her at the moment. She

:09:47.:09:55.

will win a corner here too. Lauder made the goal and she has made

:09:56.:10:00.

herself known so far, giving Macedonia's defends a torrid time in

:10:01.:10:07.

these opening moments. Lauder has gone for goal herself here! The

:10:08.:10:15.

Scots have made a strong start and they've scored a second. Macedonia

:10:16.:10:23.

cannot complain this rampant Scottish team. Love, her third goal

:10:24.:10:26.

of the qualifying campaign, ten for the national team overall. Passed in

:10:27.:10:32.

by Kim Little, lovely cross and another one for Scotland. The goals

:10:33.:10:37.

keep on coming. Jennifer Beattie has this one. They can't contain the

:10:38.:10:47.

crosses, can they? Lauder, and now Lisa Evans. Escaping the challenge

:10:48.:10:52.

and getting the ball across. Bouncing ball, not cleared here. It

:10:53.:10:56.

comes to Lauder, another goal for Scotland. Four and counting. She has

:10:57.:11:04.

made two and she has now scored one herself, Lauder. This was too easy

:11:05.:11:08.

for Scotland. They are cruising, coasting. Pasting Macedonia.

:11:09.:11:15.

Beattie. No flag. Lauder's cross. Lauder

:11:16.:11:32.

makes three goals, Scotland have five. His time, Lisa Evans adding

:11:33.:11:38.

her name to the ever-growing list of Scotland chorus. But Lauder, this

:11:39.:11:45.

first half for her, made three, scoring one -- Scotland's scorers.

:11:46.:11:51.

Lauder on the left-hand side, really promising for the Scots. Lauder's

:11:52.:12:03.

cross. Yet again, the same old routine and Jo Love has another. The

:12:04.:12:09.

left-hand side for Scotland is producing such joy in this first

:12:10.:12:18.

half. Six goals and Jo Love with a brace. A very different first half

:12:19.:12:24.

for Scotland. After missing out in their last two qualifying campaigns

:12:25.:12:28.

in the play-offs, is this their best chance of qualifying for a major

:12:29.:12:33.

tournament? I do, they are joint top of the group with Iceland. The game

:12:34.:12:37.

against Iceland in June will be a pivotal game, as to whether they

:12:38.:12:43.

qualify top, or go through as a potential one about. It has been

:12:44.:12:47.

nearly but not quite previously. But the quality of players they have is

:12:48.:12:56.

phenomenal. This year, I'm positive. Wales did not have the best start in

:12:57.:13:00.

their Euro qualifying campaign, conceding seven goals in two defeats

:13:01.:13:06.

against Austria and Norway. But a 4-0 victory against Kazakhstan

:13:07.:13:10.

lifted them off the bottom of the group ahead of their match with

:13:11.:13:14.

Israel on Tuesday afternoon. Northern Ireland are in a tough

:13:15.:13:18.

group, beaten 8-1 at home to Switzerland on Friday and they will

:13:19.:13:22.

face the Czech Republic and Italy next in April. The group winners and

:13:23.:13:29.

the six best runners-up will go through to the finals. We've seen

:13:30.:13:33.

the impact of Northern Ireland and Wales qualifying for the men's

:13:34.:13:37.

European Championships. What is the prospect of the other home nations

:13:38.:13:40.

doing the same in the women's game? We would like to see them follow

:13:41.:13:44.

suit, but it is a big uphill struggle for Wales. They lost

:13:45.:13:49.

against Austria and Norway in their group and Northern Ireland losing to

:13:50.:13:52.

Switzerland, so it will be very difficult, as only one at the top

:13:53.:13:57.

will get out of qualification. I can't see it, but it would be great.

:13:58.:14:03.

You never know. In Bristol, England, zero, Bosnia and Herzegovina zero at

:14:04.:14:10.

half-time. That's get anything from inside the England camp, the

:14:11.:14:13.

goalkeeper Alex Greenwood, she's not a goalkeeper! She is with Uzi. What

:14:14.:14:22.

are your thoughts? Good possession, creating chances, if we go down the

:14:23.:14:26.

sides we will create chances, get the white players a bit wider. --

:14:27.:14:31.

with Suzy. Great performance against Germany, you must be high on

:14:32.:14:37.

confidence? Yes, personally. A great display in Germany, solid

:14:38.:14:42.

defensively and to come away with a draw shows how far we have come.

:14:43.:14:46.

What will Mark be saying to them in the dressing room? Still be

:14:47.:14:50.

positive, 45 minute ago, we don't need to panic, the goals will come,

:14:51.:14:55.

we need to keep our width and create chances down the side. Do you hate

:14:56.:15:02.

watching from the sideline? Yes, it is a squad of 23 and we all have to

:15:03.:15:06.

do it at some point. Interesting stuff, what needs

:15:07.:15:09.

do it at some point. Interesting second half? Must England be more

:15:10.:15:13.

creative? Bring the same energy they have, be patient, I keep saying it,

:15:14.:15:20.

get Jess Clarke and Gemma out wide. I would like to see Clarke getting

:15:21.:15:32.

on the scoresheet. She has real ability to do 1-2s with a look at --

:15:33.:15:40.

with Eni Aluko upfront, so I would like to see Telford coming on. A

:15:41.:15:45.

very bright future ahead of her, impressive performance. She has done

:15:46.:15:50.

OK, I would like to see more, staying wide. She is one of the best

:15:51.:15:55.

one against one attacking players we have in England and now she is

:15:56.:15:58.

starting to shine on the world stage, Davison. She is so good

:15:59.:16:07.

technically. She moves her feet so well, gliding past defenders with

:16:08.:16:10.

ease and this is why she's one of the better players for Chelsea.

:16:11.:16:14.

Fantastic season and she's in the England team because of that. She

:16:15.:16:21.

has earned her place but she will be have to be careful about holding

:16:22.:16:25.

onto the ball in possession. Teams are very physical and you can get a

:16:26.:16:31.

good kicking if you hold onto the ball a lot which we have seen

:16:32.:16:34.

happening before Scott Wight what will Mark Sampson be saying to them

:16:35.:16:38.

at half-time? I agree with Alex Greenwood, he will be saying to

:16:39.:16:43.

remain patient, stick to the game plan, which I'm sure what to make

:16:44.:16:48.

the pitch wide. Add stick to the set pieces, they have had many corners

:16:49.:16:52.

which should be coming to fruition -- and stick. Because they are so

:16:53.:16:58.

backed up in front of goal, test them, bring them out and try and

:16:59.:17:02.

have a long shot, or if they go out, slip it through to Eni Aluko dill in

:17:03.:17:09.

the gaps. We have seen the goalkeeper punching out quite a view

:17:10.:17:12.

shots, but follow them in and try and pick them up. Once they get one,

:17:13.:17:19.

the rest will start following. Games against inferior opposition gives

:17:20.:17:21.

mark the chance to try out some new players and options in the second

:17:22.:17:26.

half. Ess, Fran Kirby is an ideal player for the game, she is very

:17:27.:17:32.

good 1-1, I would like to see Toni Duggan coming on, she has been

:17:33.:17:36.

inspirational for England. She had an injury but she can create and

:17:37.:17:40.

score and take on players, so they would be my changes. Have Bosnia

:17:41.:17:46.

been better than we expected? In terms of their organisation, it has

:17:47.:17:51.

been impeccable, it is shot from distance where England have had

:17:52.:17:53.

their only chance is, so credit to them. England have two stick to

:17:54.:17:59.

their game plan, they are the superior team and they have to make

:18:00.:18:03.

it count but let me handy back to our commentary team, Jonathan Pearce

:18:04.:18:09.

and to Smith. COMMENTATOR: England will settle now for a repeat of the

:18:10.:18:13.

first ever England international victory at this ground, in 1899,

:18:14.:18:19.

England beating Wales 4-0 in the men's game, goals from Steve Bloom,

:18:20.:18:29.

he got a couple. A long while ago. They will settle for any kind of

:18:30.:18:32.

victory now, a wretched afternoon in terms of the weather, against this

:18:33.:18:38.

Bosnia-Herzegovina team. Interesting, I have been watching

:18:39.:18:41.

Fara Williams talking to Bassett, who has been playing out of position

:18:42.:18:45.

in the holding midfield role, which is the Williams role. Giving her a

:18:46.:18:52.

few tips and a bit of advice. That's great, shows you the unity of the

:18:53.:18:57.

team. Needs to release one or two shot gun passes, quarterback style

:18:58.:19:02.

passes faster, use the ball more quickly. Get the ball out wide, the

:19:03.:19:09.

girls mentioned it at half-time, Davison and Clarke are isolated and

:19:10.:19:12.

they can beat defenders and then it's the delivery, the final

:19:13.:19:16.

bawling. The goalkeeper has done well -- the final ball in. Rachel

:19:17.:19:21.

mentioned it, can the players follow in? England will have the wind

:19:22.:19:26.

behind them in the second half, from the left-hand side. It is swirling

:19:27.:19:31.

around and comes back into their faces from the right. Bosnia and

:19:32.:19:39.

Herzegovina getting us underweight. The referee from France. -- getting

:19:40.:19:50.

us underway. The band starts to make some noise. The stand on the

:19:51.:19:58.

left-hand side. Stokes, driving down the line. Davison ahead of her.

:19:59.:20:03.

England's best player on Thursday. The captain, Steph Houghton. In the

:20:04.:20:26.

back of the net, one or two fans hadn't heard the whistle. It was a

:20:27.:20:32.

long while before it looped into the back of the net. It was a good

:20:33.:20:43.

diagonal ball from Houghton. Just before the ball arrived at her feet

:20:44.:20:48.

she came from an offside position. Squeezed in between two defenders,

:20:49.:20:55.

Hasanbegovic and Spahic. Christiansen was being tugged and

:20:56.:21:05.

that is a daft free kick to give. The ball from Houghton is there.

:21:06.:21:17.

Giving away more free kicks, tracing the game, they will tire. The fact

:21:18.:21:26.

that this is a 3 sided ground at the moment, they are breaking a

:21:27.:21:36.

brand-new West stand right behind our

:21:37.:21:36.

brand-new West stand right behind means... There it is, it means the

:21:37.:21:37.

wind and rain is dying from that's right. The old TV gantry used to be

:21:38.:21:45.

where we are, I think the first gantry over there, when I was 12

:21:46.:21:54.

years old, Bristol City. That was only about ten years ago, wasn't it?

:21:55.:22:01.

Nobbs, here comes the cross. Way ahead of their time, video analysis

:22:02.:22:08.

of games, that was in 1972. Another free kick here. Nobbs has gone

:22:09.:22:14.

down. She is OK, though. She drew the challenge in. She did, she

:22:15.:22:20.

actually won the ball first and got her body in between herself and the

:22:21.:22:26.

ball. She was brought down. She won a good foul. She knew she was going

:22:27.:22:31.

to get it. This is gladly, it is promising. Into the hands of Hodzic.

:22:32.:22:38.

A clean sheet away in Serbia in the week. Good, quick feet from claggy,

:22:39.:22:44.

getting to the sideline. Trying to hit it to the file post -- from

:22:45.:22:52.

Clarke. -- the far post. Anything around the goals she is going to

:22:53.:22:54.

claim. You can see that Bassett is trying

:22:55.:23:30.

to draw the players out and they are not going towards her. Very

:23:31.:23:39.

difficult to play against a team, parking everything across there.

:23:40.:23:42.

It's a goal kick. It isn't England's days so far. This is a

:23:43.:23:50.

real test. Losing their opening game. The fans who went over

:23:51.:24:00.

remained optimistic. Those close to the team felt sure that they could

:24:01.:24:00.

pass a different kind of test. It is,

:24:01.:24:13.

they drew 0-0 against Germany on Thursday

:24:14.:24:13.

test about how well they could cope against some of the best attacking

:24:14.:24:13.

players. Here, but I'm sure that when they score

:24:14.:24:28.

one, it will open and they will a free kick and it should be

:24:29.:25:29.

punishment for the full-back, Dijakovic.

:25:30.:25:29.

Coming to the edge of the penalty area. Good goalkeeping.

:25:30.:25:41.

Coming to the edge of the penalty slippery. Good goalkeeping, good

:40:22.:40:25.

the England captain. I don't think she even went for the ball. A

:40:26.:40:31.

curtain of rain hanging down on Ashton Gate. Look at that on the far

:40:32.:40:42.

side. I seem to remember it rains that night when Bristol City got

:40:43.:40:46.

promotion against Portsmouth. Can't remember the rest of the night, to

:40:47.:40:48.

be honest! A bit of a blur. Fortune favoured Aluko there. The

:40:49.:41:09.

goalkeeper has played very well. I don't know if we can see the angle

:41:10.:41:13.

again, but as the ball comes in, it's words just in front of her.

:41:14.:41:18.

Probably because of the wind and the driving rain. It could have gone

:41:19.:41:22.

horribly wrong for her, but she chose to get it away, rather than

:41:23.:41:25.

miss the catch. Duggan has brought something extra

:41:26.:41:48.

to the party, I think. Very lively. Wants to get on the ball.

:41:49.:42:17.

Is Bosnia-Herzegovina can hold onto this, it will be the biggest result

:42:18.:42:24.

in their women's history. Without a shadow of a doubt. It will go to the

:42:25.:42:33.

team that finished third in the world in the summer, and to come

:42:34.:42:38.

away with a draw like this. What a result! They have worked very hard.

:42:39.:42:45.

Can they keep it up to the end? Scott! England have the

:42:46.:42:55.

breakthrough! On the day, her beloved and nephews were here to see

:42:56.:43:00.

her specially honoured by the FA! They see Jill Scott head England

:43:01.:43:07.

ahead. A wonderful day for her now. I am so pleased for Jill Scott with

:43:08.:43:13.

that goal. But good work by Aluko down the left-hand side. If Jill

:43:14.:43:17.

Scott is in the area, you know she will win the ball in the air. That

:43:18.:43:21.

is a good directed header. Yes, the keeper could have done a bit better

:43:22.:43:26.

there. She has done excellent all night, but so pleased for Jill

:43:27.:43:31.

Scott. She got a great reception when she came on, Jill Scott. One of

:43:32.:43:37.

the most popular players in the squad in the women's game. A great

:43:38.:43:44.

character. A vital, vital goal. Scored against Estonia away in the

:43:45.:43:49.

first game. She's just got that desire, and the passion to get on

:43:50.:43:53.

the end of the ball. And want to score. Could the weather get any

:43:54.:44:02.

worse? Duggan has been lively since she came on. She wins the free kick.

:44:03.:44:27.

Bassett forward. Scott in there again, wiping her face against the

:44:28.:44:31.

rain. That was a risky challenge. She

:44:32.:44:51.

could be in big trouble here. She could get a read for this! It's

:44:52.:45:07.

yellow. If the French referee... She was going to give the England player

:45:08.:45:12.

the benefit of the doubt. That's a yellow. It's definitely not a red

:45:13.:45:18.

card. The ball just slipped away from her on this surface. The studs

:45:19.:45:23.

were not raised. She just turned the ball away at the end. Saved her. It

:45:24.:45:30.

did. She's had a good game. That would be really disappointing for

:45:31.:45:35.

her, if it had been a red card. It wasn't a deserved one.

:45:36.:45:53.

That is the extent of the Bosnian ambition, when they get forward.

:45:54.:46:00.

Just to wind down some extra seconds. And then they just run back

:46:01.:46:04.

as quickly as they can, to get into the shape. A 1 -0 win wouldn't be

:46:05.:46:11.

enough to take England to the top of the group, but it would be a

:46:12.:46:17.

victory. On a day like this, against very, very well organised

:46:18.:46:24.

opposition, of whom Amira Spahic, the number four, has been

:46:25.:46:26.

outstanding. So has the goalkeeper. Not sure if you would have heard a

:46:27.:46:49.

buzz on the line there. I think it is the water getting in! Duggan was

:46:50.:46:58.

off the ball there. She was looking at the referee as well there. I

:46:59.:47:02.

don't think it was as strong a shout. It wasn't. She did get

:47:03.:47:11.

pushed. It was a good delivery. It's like she mistimed her jump slightly,

:47:12.:47:15.

and did get a bit of a nudge in the back. It wasn't as strong as Steph

:47:16.:47:22.

Houghton's earlier on, which was definitely a penalty, for me. The

:47:23.:47:28.

wind seems to be veering so that the rain is coming into our faces now. I

:47:29.:47:33.

have just stood back a little bit. England totally dominant in terms of

:47:34.:47:54.

possession. They remain totally dominant with

:47:55.:48:13.

the ball. We said on Thursday night, when we

:48:14.:48:39.

watched the England game... Are you surprised that Jill Scott scored

:48:40.:48:43.

tonight against Osney? It was a good call from you again. It is a very

:48:44.:48:50.

low success rate over the years! Disappointing! Very impressed with

:48:51.:48:56.

your pace, getting down there to do the half-time interview. And running

:48:57.:49:02.

back in the rain. You didn't know this, but we were running a secret

:49:03.:49:04.

camera on you, in case you slipped! Confirmation of the crowd. 13,000.

:49:05.:49:45.

That's a terrific result for the FA, and for England's women's

:49:46.:49:51.

football. Very much on the up. Because it is a rotten day. Fans

:49:52.:49:59.

could have stayed away. Stokes was hurt, but still got the cross in.

:50:00.:50:11.

Good one to touch. Jordan Nobbs involved again. She's so lively in

:50:12.:50:21.

and around the penalty area. Got so much energy, and isn't afraid to

:50:22.:50:27.

issue to. Just under 15 minutes left. There is confirmation of that

:50:28.:50:31.

attendance. Nikolic was the girl who scored a

:50:32.:51:04.

hat-trick against Estonia. England haven't conceded a home goal

:51:05.:51:32.

in qualifiers since France scored at Selhurst Park in a World Cup

:51:33.:51:42.

play-off back in 2003. Were you playing that day? I knew you were

:51:43.:51:50.

going to ask that! I think so. Can you remember the games you play?

:51:51.:51:52.

Last week, just about! So much of England's players have

:51:53.:52:24.

seen a player picking up possession facing away from the penalty area.

:52:25.:52:32.

Amira Spahic has been outstanding for Bosnia-Herzegovina. They have

:52:33.:52:42.

had two or three back into the goalkeeper. Hasanbegovic, the tall

:52:43.:52:46.

number five, has played well. Kulis, the left-back. With 12 minutes to

:52:47.:52:59.

go, they will be delighted with the scoreline, Bosnia-Herzegovina. They

:53:00.:53:03.

will. I have been impressed by how tirelessly they have worked. They

:53:04.:53:07.

have Resch arrived and made it so hard for England. It will be a

:53:08.:53:13.

defeat for them, but an honourable one. Not yet, of course.

:53:14.:53:40.

The fans haven't left. They will be absolutely saturated. It used to be

:53:41.:53:54.

an indoor bowls area on that far side. I don't know whether it is

:53:55.:54:00.

still there. The first in the country to have one as well. Bristol

:54:01.:54:04.

City, trendsetters, back in the day! Dijakovic is going to go off. I

:54:05.:54:28.

think that is to protect her. She's had a yellow card. She's had a

:54:29.:54:30.

warning. Duggan. A lengthy stride. It of pace

:54:31.:54:44.

about her. Corton has come away to this left-hand side. -- Steph

:54:45.:54:55.

Houghton. It was worth a go. When the ball finds you in acres of space

:54:56.:55:02.

there, why not just have a go? Here comes the substitute. She has played

:55:03.:55:10.

in all four qualifiers so far. Off goes Dijakovic. Lihovic plays in

:55:11.:55:17.

Sweden. She has scored at international

:55:18.:55:31.

level. One in 12 international games. England are going to make a

:55:32.:55:40.

change too. It is going to be Rose to come on. She'll be given a

:55:41.:55:45.

tremendous reception. Nikolic plays a lot of her football

:55:46.:56:51.

of the centre forward. They have rarely gone more than 30 yards

:56:52.:56:56.

beyond their own dead all line today.

:56:57.:57:07.

Eight minutes to go. 1-0. It's not what people expected. It's not what

:57:08.:57:18.

people wanted. They will accept the win, but how critical Will Mark

:57:19.:57:22.

Sampson B of his team's performance? I think he will be frustrated, as

:57:23.:57:29.

the players will be, but I think he will be quite happy with the three

:57:30.:57:33.

points. They will have to work on how to break down a team like this,

:57:34.:57:36.

and I'm sure that's something he will do. There will be other games

:57:37.:57:44.

that this will happen in as well. Off goes the captain. On comes Jemma

:57:45.:57:47.

Rose. DFA's Young Player of the Year in

:57:48.:58:04.

2011. Scored that year against Doncaster. FA Cup runner-up with

:58:05.:58:13.

Bristol. Now plays at Arsenal. Plays in top-flight football, and in

:58:14.:58:18.

finals. The Continental Cup this year.

:58:19.:58:34.

The precious thing for England now, in the last six minutes of play, is

:58:35.:58:43.

to ensure there is a victory. I think there is no doubt that will be

:58:44.:58:47.

the case, but can they get another goal, or a couple of goals? Just for

:58:48.:58:54.

the fans. Turned out in absolute force, in this horrible weather.

:58:55.:59:11.

You are a few crackles at home. It is because the are being affected by

:59:12.:59:17.

the water. England need to be disciplined and

:59:18.:59:30.

well drilled. A free kick for Bosnia-Herzegovina. What is it about

:59:31.:59:38.

holding your phone torch up these days? Why did the youngsters do

:59:39.:59:44.

that? Sue Smith, you are a youngsters. The free kick went all

:59:45.:59:50.

the way through. Don't ask me. I'm not a youngster any more! I think it

:59:51.:59:56.

just looks nice, doesn't it. You are shaking your head at me! I am a

:59:57.:59:59.

fool. Why many things... Away by Duggan. There is no

:00:00.:00:16.

ambition, really, beyond going away with this defeat, keeping the

:00:17.:00:26.

scoreline down. Their best hopes lay with the 0-0 draw. So much better

:00:27.:00:33.

today, Bosnia-Herzegovina, they were pretty poor against Belgium. Belgium

:00:34.:00:41.

shouldn't beat England in the group but they have two big wins against

:00:42.:00:48.

Bosnia-Herzegovina. I think England will find it easy against Belgium

:00:49.:00:51.

because they will come out and play a bit more. Winning at home to

:00:52.:00:58.

Bosnia-Herzegovina 6-0, and away, 3-0.

:00:59.:01:20.

Lihovic was there. Away it goes a goal kick. That's what it's

:01:21.:01:29.

Lihovic was there. Away it goes a about, having a good day!

:01:30.:01:47.

Who is your Man of the Match? Quite tough, it has been difficult for

:01:48.:01:55.

many of them. I have Ashley gone for Gemma Davison for the first half

:01:56.:01:59.

performance. -- I have actually gone. She was lively and creative,

:02:00.:02:05.

she wanted to make things happen. I have gone for Gemma Davison. A

:02:06.:02:13.

terrific first half. The way they handled her in the second half

:02:14.:02:18.

speaks volumes of the manner of their performance. Talk about being

:02:19.:02:22.

good performance in Germany, being a mature one. There is a growing

:02:23.:02:28.

majority in the team. Bosnia made it very difficult for England. I think

:02:29.:02:34.

so, they will learn a lot of lessons from this. I think Gemma Davison was

:02:35.:02:39.

probably the talking point at half-time, how they could cope with

:02:40.:02:43.

her, and they have done much better. I thought the first half performance

:02:44.:02:51.

probably stood out. Rose from range. They worthy exercise for England to

:02:52.:02:55.

come up against teams like this in qualifying even if England haven't

:02:56.:02:59.

played their best and it has not been a very edifying spectacle. It

:03:00.:03:03.

is a win for him and that's how he'll treat it. It is a better

:03:04.:03:09.

exercise than winning 8-0, as they did in World Cup qualifying. Yeah,

:03:10.:03:14.

because you come into tournaments and it's much tougher, it's all

:03:15.:03:18.

about how you break down teams and do certain things. Competitive

:03:19.:03:22.

teams, it will be hard. They will be tired after this game because they

:03:23.:03:25.

have had to constantly try and create things, a lot of different

:03:26.:03:29.

movement. This is good for when they go into a challenge like the World

:03:30.:03:34.

Cup, or the European Championships. Jill Scott is turning into space,

:03:35.:03:38.

and still going. Wasn't a free kick. Her goal separates the teams.

:03:39.:03:53.

There will be three minutes of time added on. Can England get a second?

:03:54.:04:03.

Wasn't a good ball through. Sometimes they tried to thread the

:04:04.:04:06.

eye of the needle when there have been simple options. Bosnia are

:04:07.:04:16.

going to make another substitution. Alisa Spahic, nominally the

:04:17.:04:25.

attacking player today, being replaced by Piskic who started two

:04:26.:04:29.

of their last three qualifiers. A midfield player at a Sarajevo club.

:04:30.:04:38.

One of ten players from that side in this squad. Three minutes of

:04:39.:04:40.

stoppage time now. They have come here to nullify and

:04:41.:05:14.

negate. They have come to frustrate, and they've done it. Sluggishly

:05:15.:05:26.

trudging off. Disappointed that the referee let her have that time.

:05:27.:05:31.

Should have hurried her up. I think so. I think she was physically

:05:32.:05:35.

shattered, the amount of work she has put in. But it's time wasting as

:05:36.:05:46.

well. It slipped away from the Nobbs. The substitute now.

:05:47.:06:02.

England need to maintain their concentration, otherwise this could

:06:03.:06:09.

yet go horribly wrong. Interesting that coaches talk these days about

:06:10.:06:14.

players needing to perform for 95 minutes, not 90 minutes. Lovely

:06:15.:06:23.

exchange between Duggan and Nobbs. A good tackle from Hasanbegovic who

:06:24.:06:24.

has been excellent. At the end they have a free kick and

:06:25.:06:37.

they are going to make another change. Radeljic is going off, and

:06:38.:06:49.

Stanic is coming on. Another midfield player. Came on as a sub

:06:50.:07:02.

against Belgium at home in October. Poor delivery. Bassett with the

:07:03.:07:08.

header away. Aluko will be frustrated by today's events.

:07:09.:07:15.

High pressing therefrom was near. -- there from was near. Over the last

:07:16.:07:25.

few minutes they have stepped ten, 20 metres higher. The anxiety of the

:07:26.:07:30.

closing stages of games in Canada. England seemed to have games won and

:07:31.:07:36.

then slipped away. Substitution, Radonjic is going off. -- Radeljic.

:07:37.:07:59.

The assistant should be up the line here and saying, come on, away.

:08:00.:08:05.

There is a fourth official there too. It's quite interesting because

:08:06.:08:10.

she started jogging and the bench were saying, slowdown, slowdown. I

:08:11.:08:17.

interpreted that is what they were saying! Disappointing, though. If

:08:18.:08:24.

this is the extent of your ambitions. Going away with a 1-0

:08:25.:08:30.

defeat, but there you are. A different development stage.

:08:31.:08:48.

Well, it hasn't been the homecoming party that England expected, but it

:08:49.:08:55.

is a victory for Mark Sampson and that makes it two in two in this

:08:56.:09:01.

European qualifying campaign so far. The winning goal took a long time

:09:02.:09:04.

coming and it came from the substitute, Jill Scott. A

:09:05.:09:08.

frustrating night for England, but it's three points, beating Bosnia

:09:09.:09:10.

and Herzegovina. STUDIO: This is what Group 7 looks

:09:11.:09:23.

like now. England have played two and won two. They are second in the

:09:24.:09:28.

table. The next qualifier is at home to Belgium next April. 1-0, not what

:09:29.:09:35.

we expected, Kelly. Very difficult game for England, Bosnia made it

:09:36.:09:38.

extremely difficult, no interest in setting out to win the game,

:09:39.:09:41.

defensive display, 11th players behind the ball. Barnsley didn't

:09:42.:09:48.

have a shot to save. Frustrating but the three points is the main thing.

:09:49.:09:52.

Your thoughts on the England performance in their first time

:09:53.:09:56.

qualifier? Disappointing that we didn't get the goals that we

:09:57.:10:00.

expected but put it in perspective, the end of a long and successful

:10:01.:10:04.

season for these England players. This is the final game, they had won

:10:05.:10:11.

three days ago against Germany. It is a long and hard season, really

:10:12.:10:15.

wonderful and attractive football but today they grounded out and got

:10:16.:10:20.

the result. They got it thanks to Jill Scott who made an impact after

:10:21.:10:24.

coming on. We can have a look at her goal now. That's what you want from

:10:25.:10:29.

your substitutions, Mark Samson has said that, talking about being the

:10:30.:10:34.

impact player. Eni Aluko beating her player, and that's what Jill Scott

:10:35.:10:38.

does best, arriving late and guiding it into the back of the net. Duggan

:10:39.:10:45.

wants to get on the ball. Eni looks up and makes a little left footed

:10:46.:10:51.

cross and Jill Scott guided it in and the goalkeeper should have done

:10:52.:10:54.

better. That's what wanted, in the first half we had so many crosses

:10:55.:10:59.

but they weren't picking up players. The opposite this time and they got

:11:00.:11:03.

the reward. Should England have had a penalty before the goal? Possibly,

:11:04.:11:09.

one of those that will go down as, seen them given. It was a late

:11:10.:11:13.

challenge on Steph Houghton and it could have been a penalty, but we

:11:14.:11:17.

are clutching at straws if that's what we want to win the game. I

:11:18.:11:22.

don't think the referee was in the best position, she wasn't looking at

:11:23.:11:25.

contact and for me that wasn't a penalty. Jordan Nobbs in first,

:11:26.:11:29.

didn't she? She picked up an injury which limited her in the World Cup

:11:30.:11:34.

but she has been really impressive. Against Germany she was impressive

:11:35.:11:38.

and she is one of the few England players who tested the goalkeeper.

:11:39.:11:45.

The first half chance was good and she gets in space, a very clever

:11:46.:11:48.

player and she has a fantastic strike from distance. The kind of

:11:49.:11:52.

player that England doesn't have many of now that Kelly has retired!

:11:53.:11:57.

She is a key player and when Jordan Nobbs is playing she makes England

:11:58.:12:02.

tick, she plays one box to box, she never hides and she is a player to

:12:03.:12:09.

watch and play with. Frustrating for Eni Aluko who will be pleased that

:12:10.:12:14.

she was involved in the goal. First of all she started the match and

:12:15.:12:17.

that is something she will be pleased with, having had limited

:12:18.:12:21.

opportunities in the World Cup. She will go into the game wanting to

:12:22.:12:25.

make an impact, wanting to get two or three goals to finish the season

:12:26.:12:30.

on a higher. It didn't happen for her. But it was three points -- on a

:12:31.:12:34.

high. Three points, that's the message that Mark Samson will give

:12:35.:12:39.

to his team. Overall thoughts on the year that thing and have had

:12:40.:12:44.

including the World Cup? Wonderful, what a year, recognition across the

:12:45.:12:48.

world and in England, these players are now household names. It was in

:12:49.:12:51.

the performance we wanted after the World Cup but credit to the

:12:52.:12:56.

players, Mark Sampson. English women's football is on the map and

:12:57.:13:00.

long may it continue. They have a strong qualification campaign next

:13:01.:13:04.

year. Hopefully they can top the group and do well in the European

:13:05.:13:10.

Championships. 2015 has been about making history, it has put it on the

:13:11.:13:19.

map, it is here to stay and I can't wait for the rest of the qualifiers,

:13:20.:13:24.

seeing England getting silverware. Another one of our qualifiers,

:13:25.:13:27.

Scotland against Macedonia ended 10-0. Thank you to you and our

:13:28.:13:33.

former England international is, Kelly Smith and Rachel Brown Finis.

:13:34.:13:37.

The moral of the day is, don't get stressed when it is 0-0, just take a

:13:38.:13:42.

Jill pill. Being a British guy

:13:43.:14:09.

in 2015 is not easy.

:14:10.:14:12.

Coverage of England's second UEFA Women's Euro 2017 qualifier as they take on Bosnia and Herzegovina.
