Women's Football White brace helps England grab a point against Germany

PHIL NEVILLE praised England’s display following yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Germany in the SheBelieves Cup.

An Ellen White brace saw the Lionesses come from behind twice. Uncharacteristically poor defending gifted Hasret Kayikci the opening goal only for White to score from the ensuing kick-off.

A Millie Bright own goal looked to have given Germany the win only for White to pop up again and salvage a point with 15 minutes remaining.

Neville was pleased with his side’s ability to not only get back into the game but have the chances to win it.

“Giving an overall assessment of the performance you’ve got to look at the basic quality of the character the team showed in coming back twice against the second-best team in the world, and creating enough chances really to go on and win the game,” Neville said.

“In the end we could have won it or they could have won it, so maybe a 2-2 draw was probably a fair result.

“It’s a game now where I look back and think: ‘Have we got anything to fear against Germany?’ and the answer is: ‘No’.”

Victory against the United States on Thursday would see England win the SheBelieves Cup.
