The English football players booked their biggest win ever on Tuesday.

The team of national coach Sarina Wiegman won in the World Cup qualifier no less than 20-0 against the helpless Latvia.

Ellen White scored three goals and can now call herself the all-time top scorer of the English team.

England's biggest win came with a 13-0 win over Hungary in 2005. The number eight in the world ranking only needed 67 minutes on Tuesday at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster to score thirteen goals.

After nine minutes it was already 3-0, partly due to two hits from 32-year-old White.

The 101-time international thus came to 47 international goals, one more than the record of Kelly Smith, who stopped in 2017.

Wiegman's team already led 8-0 after a first half with 82 percent possession and no fewer than 35 attempts.

Beth Mead had a hat-trick in the 23rd minute and Ella Toone (2) and Lauren Hemp also helped in the rain of goals.

Also in the second half the Latvians could do nothing to stop the English attacks.

White completed her hat-trick, Georgia Stanway - who provided six assists - scored the tenth goal from a penalty and goals from Jessica Carter, Bethany England, Jill Scott and Alessia Russo ensured the record win after 71 minutes (14-0).

The surreal evening was not over yet.

Hemp (2), Russo (2), Jordan Nobbs and England brought the final score to 20-0.

England beat Latvia 0-10 last month

The English women already won 0-10 against Latvia, the number 102 in the FIFA ranking, last month.

Wiegman, who came over from the Orange squad after last summer's Olympics, won no less than three of her first six international matches with 'The Lionesses' with at least ten goals difference.

In the first game with Wiegman on the bench, England was 8-0 too strong for North Macedonia.

Then followed a 0-10 win over Luxembourg, a 4-0 win over Northern Ireland, the 0-10 win in Latvia and a 1-0 win over Austria.

After six World Cup qualifiers, England is the leader in group D with eighteen points and a goal difference of +53.

Northern Ireland and Austria follow with thirteen points.
