The players enjoyed a pre-game lunch and the game in the directors box and have now flown home to prepare for their international friendly against Denmark.

As this is international week, all players selected for England, the Netherlands, Scotland and Sweden are out of London Colney and preparing for their World Cup qualifiers.

England youth teams

The England youth teams are also at a training camp, with the u20 squad preparing for the World Cup to be played next summer in France.

The u19 squad will be preparing for their qualifiers to be played next month in Kazakhstan against Slovenia and Wales.

The u17 squad that travelled for a double-header in the USA recently will be playing their qualifiers in Latvia against Scotland and Slovakia, also in October.

Development team

With no first-team game besides the behind closed door 3-2 win away to Manchester City, the Development side were in action on Sunday, losing their pre-season friendly to Millwall Lionesses 4-1.

Rianna Dean scored a hat-trick for Millwall and hopefully she can have a consistent season scoring many goals and getting called up for the u20 World Cup. Ella Rutherford scored the fourth Millwall goal, while Anna Filbey scored a consolation penalty for the Gunners.
