    England beat Korea Republic 4-0 last night (16 February) as the Lionesses and Milton Keynes' very own Leah Williamson took on the Arnold Clark Cup at Stadium MK.

    The Lionesses got off to the perfect start in the Arnold Clark Cup with a 4-0 victory as they took on Korea Republic at Stadium MK.

    Defending champions and UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 winners England were joined by Italy, Belgium and Korea Republic in the round-robin tournament.

    Each team played as part of a double-header fixture at the 30,500 capacity Stadium in Milton Keynes.

    The squad, who came to Stadium MK yesterday (16 February), are hoping to defend the Arnold Clark Cup trophy which they won last year. 

    21,030 football fans attended the game in Milton Keynes.

    England had dominated possession after Kelly made it 2-0 within 16 seconds of the second half.

    Sarina Wiegman's side made light work of South Korea, ranked 15th in the world, and already move to the top of the standings on goal difference after Belgium's Tessa Wullaert scored a late winner to beat Italy 2-1 in the tournament opener earlier on Thursday.

    "I'm lost for words. Now I can build on this confidence. I'm happy with the outcome," James told Sky News post-match. "I want to keep on improving and see where that takes me."

    England continue their Arnold Clark Cup campaign against Italy in Coventry on Sunday.
