NETBALL WORLD CUP: Meet Oyella a goal shooter on the National team

The first day of competition saw the curtain officially come up on the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019, with event partner Culture Liverpool showcasing some of the most iconic aspects of the host city to a global audience during the opening ceremony.

Sixteen months after their dramatic win over Australia sent the profile of English netball soaring to new heights, Tracey Neville's squad made a winning start to their World Cup campaign at a packed Liverpool Arena.

Scotland could not match the quality of the England Roses with England's goal shooter Rachel Dunn scoring 49 goals from 52 shots.

The 24-year-old now plays for Australian team New South Wales Swifts in Australia's elite Super Netball league.

"Layla is an wonderful addition to our team and we are so disappointed that she won't be joining us on court for the rest of this tournament", she said. "We will do everything we can to ensure she is back playing again soon".

A sell-out crowd in the home side of the two-court arena, with a vocal group of Ugandan supporters adding to the atmosphere, was testament to the surging interest in England's bid to further dent Australia's dominance of the sport.

Scotland were beaten 74-28 by England at last year's Commonwealth Games and captain Claire Maxwell said that while expectations are relatively modest, she expects her team to relish the unprecedented atmosphere.

However, any Scottish hopes that their opponents might be too focused on the bigger picture were dashed in an nearly faultless opening quarter - Guscoth's departure apart - in which both Dunn and Helen Housby scored 100 per cent of goal attempts to establish an 18-9 lead.

The result never looked in doubt for the Roses as they went into halftime with a 13 goal lead.

The She Cranes struggled throughout the contest.
