Some of our Reading FC Women stars have already been in international action in the last week ahead of a return to domestic matters when the FAWSL kick-off this weekend.
Lauren Bruton made her international debut for Phil Neville's England on Tuesday night, helping the Lionnesses celebrate World Cup qualification with a 6-0 drubbing of Kazakhstan in Pavlodar.
Bruton was called into the squad after a qualification-clinching win over Wales on Friday night and started on Tuesday evening, catching the eye and setting up her country's third goal with a shot that was saved, allowing Izzy Christiansen to fire home early in the second half.
Meanwhile, Sophie Howard was also celebrating a place in next year's tournament as a jubilant Scotland celebrated securing their first ever place at a Women's World Cup finals with a dramatic victory over Albania.
Howard started the match at the Loro Borici Stadium, knowing the Scots had to better the result of Group 2 leaders Switzerland (whom they had beaten 2-1 at St Mirren at the end of last week) to qualify automatically.
Scotland's nerves were shredded as Shelley Kerr's side clung to a 2-1 lead while the Swiss pushed in vain for a winning goal against Poland. But the Scots will be heading to France next summer!
Wales regular Tash Harding was unable to prevent England completing a 3-0 win at Rodney Parade which left her country waiting on other results in hope of a play-off place.
The Welsh had not lost any of their other qualifiers and went an incredible 687 minutes without conceding in Group 1 before Toni Duggan's broke the deadlock with the first in England's victory.
Republic of Ireland stopper Grace Moloney was unused in a 4-0 win over Northern Ireland; qualification for next year's tournament in France was out of reach for both sides before kick-off as the Netherlands and Norway battled it out at the top of Group C.
Meanwhile, Molly Bartrip was part of the England Under-23 squad which drew 0-0 with the USA before losing in Sweden on Monday night, and Phoebe Williams and Kiera Skeels also went away with England's U18s.
