World Cup draw for Hope Powell's team
Women's World Cup Qualifier: Portugal 1 - England 1
England's long march to China took a number of twists and turns this afternoon as they drew with Portugal in their third Group Four World Cup qualifying match of the campaign.
After conceding with only six minutes on the clock England battled hard, dominating possession and camping in the Portuguese half, and Karen Walker got a deserved equaliser seven minutes before the break to give England a point.
England: Pauline Cope, Rachel Unitt, Julie Fletcher, Sammy Britton (Williams, 69), Faye White, Katie Chapman, Karen Burke, Tara Proctor, Karen Walker, Rachel Yankey, Sue Smith (Ambleton, 82)
