Germany were the last team to win at the old Wembley and the first to taste international victory at the rebuilt stadium, and their women emulated that achievement on Sunday with a 3-0 defeat of England.


It was the first women's game at the new Wembley and the crowd of 45,619 was by some distance a record for England female team, and it could have been more had transport issues forced the Football Association (FA) to restrict ticket sales to below capacity. England's Jordan Nobbs hit the bar after ten seconds but an Alex Scott own goal and a Célia Šašić solo run and strike made it 2-0 on 12 minutes.

England captain Stephanie Houghton called an impromptu team huddle and the home team found their feet, and while Šašić headed in a third before the break, otherwise the European champions were matched by their hosts. Both teams now turn their thoughts to next summer's FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada, for which each qualified with a perfect record; UEFA.com heard from the players at Wembley.
