An extra time strike by Alessia Russo secured a well deserved point for the Lionesses in the 3-3 draw against Korea DPR.

Ellie Brazil and Georgia Stanway both got on the score sheet in the first half.

After the match England coach John Griffith said- 'We're focussed on qualifying from this group and I think you'll have seen that we have fast, clever forwards who will be a handful for any team.'

England's next game is against Nigeria on 4th October.

Earlier in the day Nigeria lost 1-0 to Brazil who top Grp C after the first round of games.

In Grp D USA are top after putting 6 past Paraguay. Japan are second after a 5-0 defeat of Ghana.
