Lucy Bronze provided the cross for the opening goal and was instrumental in the second as Man City right-back set up his club-mate to seal the points with 17 minutes left.

White skillfully stole the Bronze Cross at home, leading the latter to receiving accolades from Arsenal legend Ian Wright on social media.

He tweeted his name with four clapping emojis as the GB team’s women’s football team got off to a perfect start.

Summing up the match, talkSPORT’s Michael Weadock said: “It was a composed, confident and comfortable performance from Hege Riise, who took the lead in the 18th minute.

“The goal was converted at close range by Ellen White. The GB team had a host of other chances before White scored again, this time with a stunt volley.

“Credit also to Lucy Bronze, who had an assist in both goals. “

The British team lead Group E with three points as Japan face Canada later on Wednesday.
