On a busy night of UEFA Women's Nations League action, four Chelsea players featured as England came from behind to defeat the Netherlands 3-2, while Erin Cuthbert scored a spectacular equaliser for Scotland in their 1-1 draw against Belgium.

Cuthbert's goal was one of the standout moments of a busy Friday evening for the Chelsea players selected for their countries.

The Scottish midfielder collected the ball 25 yards from goal against Belgium and unleashed a shot that dipped, swerved, and left goalkeeper Nicky Evrard, who is on loan at Brighton from Chelsea this season, with no chance.

Unfortunately, Cuthbert's evening ended on a concerning note as the 25-year-old suffered a head injury after being caught in second-half stoppage time by the boot of Laura Deloose.

Cuthbert required several minutes of treatment but – in a positive sign – did walk off the pitch as Scotland finished the 1-1 draw with ten players.

It was also a night of mixed emotions for Chelsea's contingent of Lionesses. Jess Carter, Niamh Charles, Fran Kirby, and Lauren James all started at Wembley against the Netherlands while Hannah Hampton was among the substitutes.

England needed a victory to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Nations League finals – and the 2024 Olympic Games as the nominated nation for Team GB – alive. Yet at half time, they trailed the Netherlands by two goals after Lineth Beerensteyn struck a brace.

Something special was required in the second period. It was duly produced. James teed up Georgia Stanway for England's first and Lauren Hemp then quickly levelled. The Lionesses pushed – and a winner was found.

In stoppage time, James clipped a wonderfully-flighted cross to the back post for Ella Toone, who coolly volleyed home to secure victory.

The result wasn't quite enough, however, for Nations League finals qualification to be in England's hands. Sarina Wiegman's side must overcome Scotland on Tuesday and hope the Netherlands don't beat Belgium.

In group A3, Sjoeke Nusken completed 90 minutes as Germany went top following a 3-0 victory over Denmark. Ann-Katrin Berger was among the substitutes. Sophie Ingle, meanwhile, played the full game as Wales were beaten 2-1 by Iceland.

Elsewhere, Johanna Rytting Kaneryd started for Sweden but couldn't help her side avoid defeat to Switzerland. Zecira Musovic was an unused substitute, as was Eve Perisset for France, who defeated Austria 3-0.

It was a better night for Maren Mjelde as she started in defence for Norway in a 4-0 win over Portugal. Ada Hegerberg struck a hat-trick for the home side and Sophie Roman Haug also found the net.

Later on Friday night, Canada thumped an Australian side missing Sam Kerr 5-0 in British Columbia. The Chelsea trio of Jessie Fleming, Ashley Lawrence and Kadeisha Buchanan all started, with Lawrence assisting Canada's second with a low cutback. The teams meet again next week.
