Karen Carney's winner keeps England unbeaten in Euro 2017 qualifiers

England women kept their Euro 2017 qualifying campaign on track with a narrow victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Karen Carney was the match winner late on, bundling home after initially hitting the crossbar.

Defender Alex Greenwood came close with a free-kick which was tipped on to the bar by the Bosnia goalkeeper in a goalless first half.

England, with three wins and a draw so far, are one point behind Group G leaders Belgium with a game in hand.

The eight group winners and six best runners-up qualify automatically for the finals, while the other two group runners-up go on to a play-off in October.

England can virtually guarantee a top-two spot in Group G with back-to-back wins over Serbia in June.

Goalkeeper Karen Bardsley retained her place in the side against Bosnia despite an error in the draw against Belgium, while winger Carney was given a start after impressing as a substitute in the same game.

England dominated possession, with the home side showing little attacking intent and their keeper Almina Hodzic in inspired form.

She saved well from a Jill Scott strike and brilliantly tipped over Jordan Nobbs' effort just before the hour mark.

Hodzic also pushed away shots from Fran Kirby, but having touched Carney's initial strike on to the bar, she could do nothing as the Chelsea Ladies winger stuck in the rebound.
