Houghton and Parris on target for England v USA

BLUES: Houghton celebrates scoring England's first

Manchester City pair Steph Houghton and Nikita Parris were both on target as England came close to a memorable victory over the USA at the SheBelieves Cup.

Megan Rapinoe's brilliant strike put the hosts ahead after 33 minutes, but Houghton equalised three minutes later with a superb curling effort into the top corner after a well-worked free-kick routine.

Parris then gave England the lead in the second-half with a ruthless close-range finish that gave Adrianna Franch no chance.

The Lionesses were on the cusp of a famous result against the world’s top-ranked side but Tobin Heath’s goal meant Phil Neville and his players had to make do with a draw.

England have now taken four points form their opening two games and victory over Japan on Tuesday would see them win the competition.

That game will be shown live on BBC Four, with kick-off at 22:25 GMT.

Steph Houghton believes England’s core of Manchester City stars could be the difference as the Lionesses prepare to welcome Canada to the Academy Stadium in April.

Grudge matches don’t come much more exciting than when England face Canada, with the Lionesses knocking the hosts out of their own World Cup back in 2015.
