Rovers midfielder involved as England lose their opening game.

England Women’s Under-19s suffered a 1-0 defeat to Sweden in their opening game of the European Championships in Turkey.

In a repeat of the 2009 final, Elin Rubensson’s 31st-minute penalty ensured a winning start for the Swedes in Group B.

Rovers Ladies midfielder Lizzie Ince played the full 90 minutes for the Young Lions, who put up a strong fight throughout.

England are back in action on Thursday when they play Spain, who beat Serbia 3-0 in the other group game.
