Beth Mead and Fran Kirby get top marks in Lionesses’ rout

Fran Kirby

Proved a constant menace up front and provided two assists, which included drilling an inch-perfect cross to set up White for England’s sixth. 10

Lauren Hemp

Did brilliantly to adjust her feet to convert Mead’s inviting cross for the hosts’ second to open her Euros goalscoring account, before teeing up Mead herself for England’s fourth. 9

Ellen White

Astutely turned her opposite number inside out the penalty area to win England’s opening penalty. Bagged a brace to end her mini goal drought which will give her a massive confidence boost. 9

Substitutes

Alessia Russo

Fired a warning shot as to why she should start after angling in a downwards header for England’s seventh. 8

Alex Greenwood

Looked lively when she entered the fray and was unlucky to not get in on the goal-scoring fest when her shot hit the woodwork on the edge of the penalty area. 7

Ella Toone

Played a key role in keeping the intensity high when she came on, scything through Norway’s jaded defence. 7

Chloe Kelly

Looked fiery when she came on, but did she do enough to earn a starting spot? Probably not. Floated an inviting cross into the box late on which sailed over everyone’s heads.

Jill Scott

On her tenth major tournament appearance, Scott was there for a kickabout by the time she got on the pitch.
