Mo Marley's side lose La Manga opener against Denmark.
England Women's U19s got kicked-off the La Manga Tournament on Sunday afternoon against Denmark, but saw a late goal deny them a draw.
It had all started so well for Mo Marley's side too, as Nikita Parris put them ahead in the first-half only for Danish striker Camilla Andersen to level things up just after the half-hour mark.
Both teams went into the second half with the hope of getting a winner, but unfortunately it was the Danes who prevailed as Andersen scored her second of the game with just eight minutes left on the clock.
England will be in action next on Tuesday afternoon when they face USA in their second game of the tournament.
