TEENAGE football star Anna Phillips helped England Women's Under-17s to three wins out of three in European qualifiers in Bosnia.

Anna, who is a Year 12 student in the Girls’ Division of Bolton School, joined up with the squad for the UEFA Phase 1 Euro qualifiers where they saw off Croatia, Bosnia and Belgium, scoring 10 goals and conceding just one in the process. 

In the first game they won 2-0 against Croatia, before a 4-0 triumph against hosts Bosnia.

In the final game against Belgium, it ended in a 4-1 win to the young Lionesses.

Anna, from Egerton, played in the first two games and, according to the FA Education Coordinator: “…should be proud of the contribution she made to the overall squad success during this campaign.” 

Throughout the 11-day event, in addition to the football training, matches, preparation and review meetings and formal education sessions, Anna also had some other learning experiences.

The squad visited the War Childhood Museum in Sarajevo where they were shown the experiences of children who lived through the war in Bosnia including a collection of feature diaries, toys, photographs, items of clothing and a variety of other objects donated by war survivors.

All the items were presented alongside first-person recollections from the individual who donated them.

Anna, who plays her club football with the Manchester City Ladies' Under-18s, also listened to a match-fixing presentation led by a FIFA representative to help provide information, raise awareness and prevent match-fixing.
