Everton Ladies starred for England this week.

Jill Scott scored twice to put England on their way to a 4-0 win over Slovenia and one step closer to the 2013 Women's European Championship Finals.

Karen Carney sealed the result on 54 minutes when she eluded the Slovenian defence and scored England's third. Everton Ladies' Player of the Year Rachel Brown kept goal throughout the game, while Blues skipper Fara Williams played for 70 minutes.

Her replacement and namesake - Rachel Williams - notched the fourth goal five minutes from time. Toni Duggan, handed her debut call-up to the senior squad, was unable to pick up her first cap, but the 20-year old will have learned from the experience.

England are second in Group Six, but gained ground on leaders Holland by defeating the Dutch 1-0 last Saturday in Salford. England must now win their final group game against rock-bottom Croatia in September to ensure qualification.

A draw or a defeat would leave them as runners-up, with play-offs then determining which nation heads to Sweden next summer.
