Ella Toone is staking her claim to be an England starter at Euro 2022


Ella Toone scored another hat-trick for England in Friday’s 10-0 win over North Macedonia. The Manchester United star has been a favourite of Lionesses boss Sarina Wiegman this season and her form for club and country increasingly points to a starting role at Euro 2022.

Having played regularly for England at junior level, Toone only made her senior international debut last year but has already quickly racked up 12 appearances. In those outings, she has scored an impressive nine goals – including a penalty on her debut and two hat-tricks more recently.

As a new young player on the fringes previously, Toone was drafted into the starting XI this season once Wiegman took charge and started six consecutive World Cup qualifiers from September to November. She also started the first of England’s three Arnold Clark Cup fixtures in February, featuring in the rest from the bench, and was restored to the lineup on Friday.

It was a walkover for England in Skopje, but Toone was ruthless in grabbing scoring three times.
