Blues Ladies star Karen Carney hit a first-half hat-trick as England Women hammered Belarus 6-0.

The Brummie forward struck in the third, 26th and 40th minute as she completed 56 minutes of the 2015 World Cup qualifier at AFC Bournemouth's Goldsands Stadium.

Ellen White, Natasha Dowie and Carney's former club teammate Eniola Aluko helped to complete the rout for interim manager Brent Hills' side.

Blues Ladies midfielder Jade Moore also played her part as a 72nd minute substitute for Fara Williams.

Meanwhile Blues Ladies goalkeeper Mary Earps has been added to the England squad for Thursday's World Cup qualifier against Turkey at Portsmouth's Fratton Park.
