England super-sub Toni Duggan insists there’s plenty more to come from Hope Powell’s side after her last-gasp strike kept their European Championship dream alive with a 1-1 draw against Russia.
The Lionesses were heading for an early exit before Duggan, who replaced Steph Houghton shortly after the hour mark, expertly swept home in the third minute of stoppage-time.
The Everton star’s strike cancelled out Nelli Korovkina’s first-half opener and means England can progress to the next stage in Sweden if they produce the right result against France.
Duggan, who was teed-up by fellow substitute Kelly Smith, was pleased with the point but admits her team-mates will have to up their game on Thursday night.
She said: “I don’t know how I feel really. I’m disappointed – we played Russia and expected to win but came away with a draw.
"I’ve been waiting to play my part in the team and thankfully today I could do that.
“And we’ve just got to move on to the game against France because I don’t think we’ve shown what we can do in this tournament. There’s still a lot more to come from the girls.”
But the striker, who has already scored nine goals at club level this season, was delighted to repay her manager’s faith in Linkoping.
She added: “I’ve been kicking my heels, I’ve been dying to get on. Hope’s given me the chance today and thankfully I’ve repaid her. I’m happy.
“I missed one just a couple of minutes before [my goal]. I was dying to get on the scoresheet so it was just instinct really – it came to me and I finished it, so I’m made up.”
