  1. Goodbye

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    I was expecting to report on a score where I had to spell it out in letters for emphasis.

    Alas, it was just a single Jill Scott header that won it for England.

    But they end the year with a win. And what a year it's been for the women's game. 

    More of the same in 2016?

  2. Read all about it

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan braved the wind and driving rain at Ashton Gate to bring you a comprehensive report from England's win.

    You can read it here.

  3. 'A win is a win'

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    England get a smiley face from winger Karen Carney.

  4. Five months and counting

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    After waiting four months for England to come home, we've now got to wait another five months before they're back in action again. 

    Mark Sampson's side host group leaders Belgium up next on Friday, 8 April 2016. 

    Belgium put 11 goals past Bosnia over two games, so England better find their scoring boots over their winter break...

  6. England 'have made history'

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Former England international Kelly Smith: "What a year it's been for England women. They've had recognition all over the world as well as at home. Players are now household names. 

    "This wasn't the performance we wanted but I'm sure they'll go onto top the group."

    Ex-England keeper Rachel Brown Finnis: "This has been about making history. Women's football is on the map and I can't wait to see England go out there and get Euro silverware."

  7. England 'ground it out'

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Former England goalkeeper Rachel Brown-Finnis on BBC 2: "It's disappointing that we didn't get the raft of goals we expected. 

    "But it's the end of a successful season and it's been a long hard season and today they just ground it out."

  8. FULL-TIME

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    It wasn't quite the homecoming goal-fest we were predicting but it's two wins from two in group seven for England.

  9. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Bosnia make another change in the first of three minutes of injury time.

    Forward Alisa Spahic saunters off and is replaced by Zerina Piskic, who immediately makes a nuisance  of herself on the right flank.

  10. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    The band are rocking in the stands of Ashton Gate, but it's all gone a bit flat on the pitch.

    It's wet and heavy out there and everyone looks knackered because of it. 

    England see Demi Stokes bomb up the left channel and Jemma Rose takes a shot from distance which goes wildly over.  

  11. Player of the match: Gemma Davison

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: I’ll go for Gemma Davison as my player of the match for her first-half performance. She was lively and creative. She wanted to make things happen.
  12. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain, a member of England's World Cup squad, is a former team-mate of debutant Jemma Rose...

  13. 'No doubt England will win'

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: There’s no doubt that [England winning] will be the case . It’s just trying to get another goal for the fans.
  14. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Captain Steph Houghton jogs off and is replaced by defender Jemma Rose, who's familiar in these parts.

    Before joining Arsenal Ladies, she spent five years at Bristol Academy and worked under Mark Sampson at the Vixens. 

  15. Post update

    Eilidh Barbour

    BBC Scotland at St Mirren Park

    Quote Message: Scotland hit double figures for the first time in Anna Signeul's reign today. 10-0 doesn't even flatter their dominance. Seventeen unanswered goals in two home Euro qualifiers.

  17. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    England's Laura Bassett finds acres of space and has a go from 25 yards but it's wide of the target. 

    Meanwhile, Nikolina Dijakovic, who was lucky not to be sent off earlier, is replaced by Amna Lihovic for Bosnia.

    A brilliant turn out.

    Your team-mate has spoken, England. 

  20. Get Involved

    Anon on text (81111): As a football fan I think the women's team show how football should be played. Fairly, enthusiastically, and in the spirit of sport as a game not making a living.

  21. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Jordan Nobbs has been a stand-out player for England today.

    The Arsenal Ladies midfielder has so much energy and paces forward before trying a looping shot from distance which goes over.

  22. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Will the floodgates open now for the hosts? 

    England have been put to the test by a very well organised and defensively solid Bosnia side.

    But maybe all that defending has tired them out? Less than 20 minutes to go in Bristol.

  23. 'Bosnia still sitting back'

    Faye White

    Former England international on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Quote Message: All Bosnia’s players have gone back to their own half. Once you lose heavily a couple of times you learn that you can’t keep playing your own way away from home against teams ranked better than you.
  24. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Yellow card for Amy Turner and she's been pretty lucky there.

    She went in, studs raised, onto midfielder Aida Hadzic. The England full-back looks a bit sheepish as she walks away. 

  25. Post update

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport at Ashton Gate

    "A little girl in front of me just shouted 'Will we ever see a goal?' A minute later Jill Scott obliges. Such is the selflessness of the Manchester City midfielder." 

  26. 'Keeper could have done better'

    England 1-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: I’m so pleased for Jill Scott. Good work by Eni Aluko to beat her player down the left and put in a cross. It’s a good directed header from Jill. The goalkeeper could have done better, she’d been excellent all night.
  27. GOAL - England 1-0 Bosnia

    Jill Scott

    At last! A breakthrough for England.

    Eni Aluko leaves the comfort of the penalty box and twists and turns before delivering a ball to Jill Scott. 

    The 5ft 11in midfielder gets her head under it and it swerves past the keeper. Relief from the partisan crowd. 

  28. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    England midfielder Jordan Nobbs has a crack from distance. It's a powerful strike and the wind makes it swerve towards goalkeeper Almina Hodzic, who frantically punches it away.She's kept Bosnia in the game today. 

  29. Get Involved

    WB on text (81111): Pretty poor advert for the women's game, this. 

  30. 'Should have been a penalty'

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: It was a definite push in the back. I don't even think she went for the ball. It should be a penalty.
  31. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Eni Aluko with another near miss and you can sense England's frustration. 

    A beautiful ball in from Steph Houghton but striker Aluko scuffs her effort.

    England have another go and it looks like defender Houghton is pushed down in the box, but no penalty given. 

  32. 'Crowd are getting restless'

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport at Ashton Gate

    "Teeming down with rain now and the crowd are getting restless with Bosnia-Herzegovina's attempts to kick the ball upfield and defend their own penalty box. The home fans and the England team are desperate for a goal."

  35. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Had a quick glance at the stats and it's 71% possession for England so far, but they've yet to get that elusive goal.

    Scotland can definitely afford to lend one to this game (see below).

  36. Scotland hit double figures

  37. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    England's Izzy Christiansen is replaced by forward Toni Duggan, who gets a brilliant reception from the crowd. She was one of the poster girls from the Women's World Cup this summer. Can she work her magic here?

  38. 'Shes a lucky girl'

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: That’s a yellow card offence – she should have gone. She’s a lucky girl. When she went down she was stretching her calves, maybe to avoid being booked.
  39. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    A nasty challenge from Nikolina Dijakoivc, who's just been booked, on Izzy Christiansen and there's calls for a red card.

    The referee thinks otherwise.

    Meanwhile, there's been a substitution for England as Jill Scott is on for Jess Clarke in midfield.

  40. 'The goals will come'

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    England defender Alex Greenwood, who didn't make today's match-day squad, has been talking to BBC Two.

    "We should keep the ball coming into the box, we’re causing them a lot of problems doing that. We should remain positive. The goals will come."

  41. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Really difficult conditions at Ashton Gate now. It's teeming it down.

    Bosnia full-back Nikolina Dijakovic gets a yellow card for a challenge on Laura Bassett and from the resulting free-kick Jordan Nobbs hits a blistering shot at the keeper. Better from England. 

  42. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia.

    Steph Houghton knocks the ball into the net for England but the referee had blown for offside before Eni Aluko's ball-in. 

    A few of the crowd missed the whistle and flag, though, and give it a little cheer anyway. 

  43. KICK-OFF

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    After a huddle from each team, we're back underway in the driving rain in Bristol.

    The band have started with a rendition of God Save The Queen. 

  44. England in 2015

    England 0-0 Bosnia Herzegovina

    England women

    England ended 2014 and started 2015 with defeats by Germany and USA. 

    But 2015 has been pretty good. 

    • 18 games
    • 12 wins
    • 2 draws
    • 4 defeats

    Can they make it 13 wins from 19 games? Second half at Ashton Gate coming up now.

  45. Open the floodgates

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: It’s a frustrating afternoon. England need to remain patient and move the ball a bit quicker. Once they get a goal hopefully the floodgates will open.
  46. Carney honoured by Uefa

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    England winger Karen Carney was one of six 100-cap players honoured by Uefa before kick-off. 

  47. Post update

    Scotland 9-0 Macedonia

    Still 30 minutes to go in Paisley. We're definitely going to see double figures.

    Maybe they can lend us some goal drama for the England game. 

  48. Patience is key

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Faye White

    Former England international on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Quote Message: I’ve played in many games that involved being patient. The movement is the key. I’m sure in the second half as Bosnia tire there will be more space.
  49. Half-time

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Everyone thought they'd be plenty of goals in this one.

    How wrong we were. A frustrating first-half for England. 

  50. Do England need to make a change?

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport at Ashton Gate

    "England are getting into the penalty box plenty, but you wonder whether substitutes Ellen White or Toni Duggan might give them more presence to get on the end of all these crosses. More composure in front of goal is definitely needed."

    Quote Message: It’s so difficult for Bosnia when you’re just defending and chasing the ball without possession. It’s mentally and physically draining.
  53. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    You have to wonder how long Bosnia can defend for. It's threat after threat from England but they just can't get it in the net. 

    Jess Clarke, this time, gets the ball to her feet inside the six-yard box but can only scuff it, and eventually it's cleared.

  54. Post update

    Good old Bristol rain now pouring down at Ashton Gate, just to add to the near gale force winds. Lovely.

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: It was much better from England, one and two-touch passes. I think they’re trying to switch players as quickly as they can. Some of the England players are getting frustrated - they can't get forward and they're not used to it.
  57. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Steph Houghton tries something a little different. The England defender takes a punt from distance but it comes to nothing.

    The Lionesses start from the back again and Demi Stokes races up the left wing but the ball in is blocked by Bosnia's brickwall of a defence. 

  58. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    I don't need to read Mark Sampson's sign language any more. You can hear him shouting loud and clear: "Jordan, keep your discipline."

    Superb first half from Scotland and in particular left-back Hayley Lauder. She's crossed in for four first-half goals and got herself on the scoresheet. Scotland lead 6-0 and will certainly continue their 100% start to their qualifying campaign.

    Another whipped ball in, but another miss from England.

    Defender Steph Houghton heads towards Eni Aluko and the striker nods it high and just over the bar.

    Faye White

    Former England international on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Quote Message: England players seem to have a little meeting before each corner. It might be a tactic. But I think it’s actually slowing play down and giving Bosnia a breather when you don’t want them to.
  64. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    A rare attacking run from Bosnia forward Lidija Kulis sees England goalkeeper Karen Bardsley finally touch the ball. 

    She must be freezing up there with not much to do.

  65. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Mark Sampson is gesturing to his players from the Ashton Gate sidelines.

    Quote Message: Good play by England, Jordan Nobbs whips the ball in and Eni Aluko – good run but should have done better with the finish. That’s what you want from your striker, that instinct, but then it’s just the finish at the end.

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Jordan Nobbs

    Close for England, and Jordan Nobbs is involved again.

    The Lionesses' midfielder hooks the ball in across the area and striker Eni Aluko tries to slide it home, but it goes just wide.

  69. 'England need creative set-pieces'

    Faye White

    Former England international on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Quote Message: We saw in the World Cup Mark Sampson’s know-how at set-pieces but they haven't’ shown it here so far. They’re just putting it in long but Bosnia have everybody back. When I was playing in games like this everyone would condense so much because they wanted the ball.
  70. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Bosnia have 10 players behind the ball and are proving to be a bit of a brick wall for England so far.

    Midfielder Izzy Christiansen whips in a wind-assisted corner but Almina Hodzic gathers well. The Bosnia keeper has been impressive so far.

  71. 'No point in hitting it long'

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport at Ashton Gate

    "Lively start by England and the fans are lapping up every step over and trick that the hosts are trying, Gemma Davison especially. No point in hitting it long, it'll just run out of play via the gale that is blowing England's way."

  76. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    So close. 

    Jordan Nobbs hits a sweet, sweet lob and it goes crashing onto the cross bar as  goalkeeper Almina Hodzic gets the slightest touch, and the danger is eventually cleared.

  77. 'Bosnia have come here to defend'

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Two

    Quote Message: Casey Stoney is such an experienced player. Technically she's so good on the ball. I’m so pleased for her that she’s starting. She deserves it. Bosnia are still a step behind England - they've come here to defend and try to limit the amount of goals England score.
  78. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    Eni Aluko is making a menace of herself in the Bosnia box.

    The England forward tries to latch onto the end of Izzy Christiansen's corner and when it's recycled from the other side of the penalty area, Aluko tries again to flick it past the keeper. 

  79. Post update

    Scotland 4-0 Macedonia

    You suspect it's game over in in Paisley. Jenny Beattie and Hayley Lauder have put Scotland out of sight within half an hour.

    BBC Scotland's Eilidh Barbour: "Very disciplined opening half hour from Scotland to take a 4-0 lead. Moving the ball too quickly for their opponents."    

    Watch that game here.

  80. Post update

    England 0-0 Bosnia

    The hosts are knocking the ball about well, trying to play from the back, but it gets a bit scrappy and crowded when England go on the attack.

    Bosnia are expected to play very deep today, and be very physical. 

    A corner is whipped in and captain Casey Stoney is clattered. 

  81. KICK-OFF

    England v Bosnia-Herzeogvina (15:30 GMT)

    Ex-England international Kelly Smith on BBC Two: "After the World Cup, England probably looked to see when their first home game was and really get their home fans on board."

    Former England keeper Rachel Brown-Finnis: "The crowd will be expecting goals which is fantastic. England are now expecting to win Euro 2017."

  83. 100-cap heroines

  84. The players are out

  85. The opposition

    Bosnia fan

    The Bosnian team are based in Sarajevo and have never qualified for a major tournament  

    So far they are fair to middling in group seven for Euro 2017.

    They have already played four times - winning two and losing two - and are level on points at the top of the group with Belgium.

    However, the Belgiums have put 11 goals past them in during qualifying. Ouch.

  86. Game day!

  92. Sampson's own homecoming

    England v Bosnia Herzegovina (15:30 GMT)

    Yes, yes, I know England manager Mark Sampson is actually Welsh, but today's match in Bristol is a bit of a homecoming for him, too.

    Sampson managed Women's Super League side Bristol Academy for four years, and his success on a shoestring earned him the England gig in 2013.

    Welcome back, Mark. Or as they say in Bristol: "Have a gert lush time."

  93. Changes for England

    England v Bosnia Herzegovina (15:30 GMT)

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport at Ashton Gate

    "Mark Sampson keeps his title as the 'tinkerman' after making seven changes.

    "The England boss has named three centre-backs in his side - captain Steph Houghton, Laura Bassett and Casey Stoney, with Bassett likely to play in midfield. Notts County's Amy Turner will start at right-back while Gemma Davison, Jess Clarke and Eni Aluko all coming into an attacking line-up.   

    "Bosnia-Herzegovina striker Milena Nikolic is their top scorer in Euro 2017 qualifying with a hat-trick against Estonia. Fellow forward Lidija Kulis plays for German side Turbine Potsdam and is also one to watch out for."

  103. Four months later...

    England v Bosnia-Herzegovina (15:30 GMT)

    Yeah, so, it feels like we're a bit late to the party with the ol' World Cup homecoming.

    But England women haven't taken the last four months off to get over the hangover. 

    A couple of friendlies, a tournament in China, and now their focus moves to qualification for Euro 2017. 

    No rest for the wicked. 

  104. Welcome home, England

    England v Bosnia-Herzegovina (15:30 GMT)

    In the summer of 2015, 23 Lionesses headed west in trepidation for the Women's World Cup in Canada.

    After highs, lows, tears and extra-time penalties, the England team returned national heroines with a bronze medal in tow. 

    Now, 148 days later, it's time for their homecoming match.
