Ella Toone is staking her claim to be an England starter at Euro 2022

Ella Toone scored another hat-trick for England in Friday’s 10-0 win over North Macedonia. The Manchester United star has been a favorite of Lionesses boss Sarina Wiegman this season and her form for club and country increasingly points to a starting role at Euro 2022.

Having played regularly for England at youth level, Toone only made his senior international debut last year but has already quickly racked up 12 appearances. In those outings, he has scored an impressive nine goals, including a penalty on his debut and two hat-tricks most recently.

A new young player on the sidelines previously, Toone was drafted into the starting XI this season once Wiegman took over and started six consecutive World Cup qualifiers from September to November. He also started the first of England’s three Arnold Clark Cup games in February, filling the rest from the bench, and was reinstated in the line-up on Friday.

It was a victory for England in Skopje, but Toone was relentless in scoring three times.
