Football: Duggan proves a super sub with goal on England debut.
The Everton-based striker's performance must have impressed the selectors because, two days later, she was in the starting line-up, against the same opponents, this time the game finishing 3-3.
"I was quite pleased with the way I played in both games," the Notre Dame student told Junior Xsport.
"When I got back I was really surprised to get a call-up to train with the England under-19 squad, so I think I must have done okay."
Duggan is a regular player and scorer for Everton FC under-16s and has made appearances for the Blues' reserves. She is also a member of the Merseyside under-16 schools squad facing West Yorkshire in the North West Counties final later in the season.
"I don't really keep a tally of the goals I score," she continued. "I think I have scored about 10 or 11 for Merseyside in the cup run. My ambition is to play for the full England team."
"Scoring goals is my biggest strength and I have to keep on doing that." Also on England under-16 duty in Denmark were Everton players Faye McCoy and Amy Clever-Kane.
