Orlando Pride forward Chioma Ubogagu made her international debut and scored her first international goal as England beat Austria 3-0 on Thursday.

Ubogagu scored in the 26th minute, cleaning up a loose ball after a challenge in the box from Toni Duggan.Houston Dash forward Rachel Daly subbed in for Ubogagu in the second half, and scored the game’s final goal in the 81st minute.

Ubogagu was named to England’s roster on October 30 ahead of the road friendly vs. Austria and a home meeting with Sweden. Before moving to the United States, Ubogagu was born in London after her parents immigrated to England from Nigeria. Ubogagu had played for United States youth national teams, but had not made an appearance on the senior level. She received her first-ever U.S. senior call up last fall, but did not play in the two friendlies vs. Canada in November 2017.
