Dream debut for Kirby!

4 August 2014

Royals star scores for England

Reading FC Women's star Fran Kirby continued to make history on Sunday, as she scored on her Three Lions debut.

Fran was already the first Royals star to be called up for the England ladies senior squad - and scored the second in a 4-0 victory over Sweden.

Kirby was superb throughout against a side who have long been thought of as one of the leading forces in the women's game - and the forward could have added to her tally were it not for some superb saves from Swedish goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl.

The 21-year-old departed the field to a standing ovation from the travelling support - and to top a wonderful day was named as the player of the match.
