Rovers Ladies chief Gemma Donnelly watched on proudly, as two of her former players were involved in Phil Neville's first game as England Ladies boss.

Kiera Walsh, who progressed through the Ladies Academy before moving onto Manchester City in 2014, played the full game in the 4-1 win over France in the SheBelieves Cup.

Fellow Rovers graduate Georgia Stanway was in the squad, linking up with England for the first time, but didn't get off the bench.

And Donnelly was pleased to see the duo play a part for the national team in the United States.

"It was great to see two of our own in Kiera and Georgia representing their country in a big tournament," Donnelly began.

"I think it shows not only the hard work that the girls have put in to getting where they have, but also the dedication and desire from my staff at Rovers Ladies.

"It certainly shows our current group that if you work hard enough and are determined to succeed, then you'll get the rewards."

Goals from Barcelona's Tony Duggan, Jill Scott, Jodie Taylor and Chelsea forward Fran Kirby sealed an excellent win for Neville's side.

The girls are next in action against Germany on Sunday 4th March.
