    Time:90'
    • England (W)
    • Russia (W)
    • 90+5 The whistle goes, England live to fight another day! A late, late equaliser. They must beat France now - what an ask!
    • 90+4 England could have won it at the death but Williams shoots over the far from the edge of the box!
    • 90+3 GOAL ENGLAND! Toni Duggan with a rasping finish into the bottom right! England live to fight another day! Smith with the asisst. The subs work together.
    • 90+2 Smith overhits a through-ball as White and Duggan raced in.
    • 90+1 DUGGAN HITS THE BAR! Somehow England fail to score as Duggan flies in unmarked to volley off the woodwork. Just not their day. Great flick-on by White.
    • 90' RUSSIA SUB: Korovkina, who scored what should be the winner, is replaced by Shlyapina.
    • 89' Duggan came highly-rated before this tournament, but has done nothing since coming on. Again her touch lets her down.
    • 88' Morozova gives away a free-kick deep in England's half. Only a few minutes plus injury time, which will be 3-4.
    • 87' Petrova hammers the free-kick well over.
    • 86' Bassett with a lunge on Terekhova, and Russia have a momentum-killing free-kick in England's half.
    • 84' White puts it well wide after being sent away by Carney. Terrible finish.
    • 83' Smith with a raking ball to release Duggan but Todua reads it to claim well.
    • 82' Carney with a lowish cross that Russia clear. The final ball has been poor. England's intermediate game - passing, movement, energy - is fine, but the final touches and decisions have been weak.
    • 80' White with a nice ball wide for Smith, but her cross spins out of play for a goal kick.
    • 79' Easy claim for Bardsley this time as England find themselves on the brink of effectively being eliminated.
    • 78' ENGLAND SUB: Smith is on - but Aluko comes off! Why is Powell persisting with White?
    • 77' Aimless pass from Stoney after initially doing well to sidestep a tackle.
    • 76' Terrible cut-back from Alex Scott as England had women over. Must be so frustrating for Powell.
    • 75' Bardsley was caught in no-man's land after a great run and touch by Morozova, who runs out of space in the end.
    • 73' Kelly Smith, the veteran with 113 caps and 46 goals, seems to be warming up.
    • 72' Down the other end Williams hits one well over. The replay of the penalty shout shows Scott slid in but pulled her leg back and didn't make contact - no foul.
    • 71' Williams with a long shot but easy for Todua. A long ball catches the English defence out and Sochneva is in! She could be one on one but Scott slides in and takes her out! No penalty says the ref!
    • 70' England now moving forward but Petrova tackles Duggan. Petrova is doing really well now.
    • 69' INCHES WIDE FROM TEREKHOVA! Fantastic long-range effort as she found the space between what is now a back three!
    • 68' Morozova is just offside after getting goalside of the England defence. Stoney stepped up smartly.
    • 67' England free kick which Carney whips in and DUGGAN CAN FINISH but the ball somehow stands up on the turf and Medved I think hacks it away.
    • 66' Scott with a decent first-time cross but hacked clear by a defender.
    • 65' FACT - Toni Duggan was a Morris Dancer as a child.
    • 64' ENGLAND SUB: Duggan comes on for Houghton. Three at the back then and Duggan to help out White.
    • 63' Corner to Russia but England clear that.
    • 62' Aluko with a nice run and pass but White steps over it when she should have taken it on. I know Kelly Smith isn't the force she was but surely White must come off soon.
    • 61' Williams with a dangerous low cross from a free-kick but Todua claims.
    • 60' Asante with a strong tackle in midfield, she brings it forward, looking wide for Carney with a fabulous touch and cross FOR WHITE WHO MUST SCORE but she puts it wide from close range! What a miss!
    • 59' Good play by Aluko to release Alex Scott, who rides one challenge but only finds a red shirt with her cut-back. The final ball has been as poor as White's movement.
    • 58' Morozova almost breaks for Russia but is offside. England set to make another change.
    • 56' Petrova does really well to keep up with Carney and prevent the corner. Carney, having come off the bench, is now playing well.
    • 55' Williams is harshly booked as Korovkina appeared to slip under pressure.
    • 54' Aluko with a cross but this time White is blameless as it's played on to the head of a Russian.
    • 53' Carney with some super ball juggling but she can't get a shot away. The loose ball drops for HOUGHTON but her curler is into Todua's arms.
    • 51' Russia trying to pass it around the back - while England are trying to take the game to them, Russia are doing all right now. Possibly sensing England's panic.
    • 50' England back putting the pressure on but Morozova classily plays Russia out of trouble.
    • 49' Loose ball from Bassett and Russia attack but England regroup.
    • 48' Jill Scott with a cross that is too close to Todua.
    • 47' Cynical bodycheck on Alex Scott from Sochneya. That's a card in the men's game, but then the men do like to roll about a bit!
    • 46' White is taken out around 35 yards out. Aluko takes and the keeper flaps this time but England fail to punish them and eventually Williams gives away a free-kick.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+1 Half-time and England surprisingly trail Russia 1-0. England dominated possession but look sloppy without it, and have paid the price once more.
    • 45+1 Aluko is fouled by Kostyukova and England have a late free-kick in the first half. Taken short, an odd call given the half is almost done and Stoney hits a rotten crossfield pass beyond Scott to touch. Very poor.
    • 45' Almighty scramble at that corner but Bardsley manages to get hold of it. England look poor at set pieces, really poor.
    • 44' Terekhova's ball to Petrova is poor, but not as poor as Stoney's touch as she shanks her clearance behind for a corner.
    • 43' Late from Williams on Korovkina. Booking for the England midfielder.
    • 42' Incessant England pressure now but Bassett ruins it with a long ball. Aluko manages to win it back, now Jill Scott with a big tackle but eventually Williams fouls Sochneva.
    • 41' Scott crosses from the right but Todua gets hold of it ahead of White.
    • 40' England immediately launch into an attack but Russia clear.
    • 39' England were not fully at the races against Spain but that was totally against the run of play. Huge challenge for England now.
    • 38' GOAL RUSSIA! Out of nothing they take the lead through Korovkina as she nods home from close range after Terekhova diverts Morozova's ball into her path!
    • 36' Carney's corner is met by Asante, the header is off target but Aluko can latch on to it, but her touch is poor on the turn and a brave Todua gathers at feet.
    • 35' Carney's ball is so-so and yields a corner. Jill Scott and Ellen White the targets... Carney will take the corner...
    • 34' Free-kick to England on the right wing, won by Carney, who will take it....
    • 33' Russia respond by winning a corner. Excellent work again from Morozova.
    • 32' JUST WIDE FROM ALEX SCOTT! Fine run from Aluko down the right and her cut-back was perfect for the arriving Scott but her side-foot finish flew inches wide!
    • 31' Corner to Russia and an inswinger lands in the side netting.
    • 30' Carney wide right to White, who has a dig from the edge of the box but sends it high and wide.
    • 29' After a brief lull England move down the left but Houghton - who had a good opportunity to cross for Aluko or White - elected to shoot, slipped, and fired straight at Todua.
    • 28' Russia on the move now but England snuff that out. You get the impression Russia will need to find their joy on the counter-attack.
    • 27' England guilty of over-elaborating after fine play from Aluko sparked an attack. White and Carney dithered a bit.
    • 26' Raking ball from Houghton but Todua reads it and gets there before Carney's late run. White nowhere near it.
    • 25' White again can't accelerate on to a decent through ball, this time from Carney. England need to accept she lacks pace and play it to feet, or cross to head.
    • 24' Aluko does well to win the ball and drive forward from midfield but she overhits the pass beyond Carney.
    • 23' Sochneva tries one from range but that is well off target.
    • 22' Houghton almost opens the scoring but her flying header off a corner flashes well wide. Clipped the side of her head.
    • 21' Good tackle from Houghton to stop Terekhova in her tracks as she raced in down the right. Corner Russia... England manage to clear but not after the ball went through Bassett's legs.
    • 20' Asante with a cute ball wide to Carney, who can't beat Medved and runs it out for a goal kick.
    • 19' Carney with a cross from the right, too close to the keeper. White takes a tumble and thinks she was fouled but I don't see much in that.
    • 18' ENGLAND SUB: Carney, who arguably should have started this match, replaces Yankey, who seems to have strained her hamstring.
    • 17' Yankey receives the ball which she promptly knocks out of play. She limps off and it looks like she will be done for today.
    • 16' Russia effectively have a one-woman advantage so are seeking to exploit it - but White tracks back well to win it back for England.
    • 15' Yankey appears to have picked up a knock or a twist. Play on but it doesn't look good for her...
    • 14' Williams flashes a flick-volley just wide after good play with Yankey. Keeper had it covered but promising from England.
    • 13' Williams wide to Yankey, she cuts inside and tries a one-two with Asante, who gets it to Scott at the second time of asking, fine cross from her but White gets her header all wrong, sending it well wide.
    • 12' Houghton just fails to keep it in after taking the ball on the chest.
    • 11' Yankey almost turns Petrova but runs it out for a throw. That is taken quickly, releasing Morozova down the right, she cuts it back for KOROVKINA WITH A CURLER but it lands inches wide with Bardsley backtracking! Russia show their danger on the break.
    • 10' Non-stop pressure from England now as Russia are forced very deep.
    • 9' Aluko wins another corner on the right. England need to make this possession count. Decent corner, punched clear but back to Williams, good second cross that almost finds White but is half-cleared - and then the loose ball drops to Jill Scott WHO FIRES IN A WICKED SHOT that Todua tips on to the post! Corner!
    • 8' Solid keeping from Todua again, as England ask all the early questions.
    • 7' Fantastic run by Yankey down the right, she cuts it back to a busy box but Tsybutovich clears.
    • 6' Before Aluko takes the corner, White is asked to stop shoving in the Russia box. It sails over everyone but Yankey picks it up wide left, her cross is cleared by Russia.
    • 5' Yankey could be in after a terrible backpass from the Russia midfield, but Todua flies out of her box to clear with her feet. Now a corner to England won by Aluko on the right...
    • 4' Savchenkova is ok and takes the corner but cleared at the near post. The loose ball lands wide to Savchenkova who ran back in, nice cross and PETROVA WITH THE HEADER but well-held by Bardsley!
    • 4' Savchenkova needs treatment after catching an arm from Williams in the head.
    • 3' Corner to Russia as Sochneva flies down the right but Jill Scott tracks her to make the challenge.
    • 3' White has time to take Yankey's ball on her chest, and turn into a volley, but she sends it well over. White was onside and the Russians briefly stopped!
    • 2' Williams with a nice through ball but, as with the first match against Spain, White looks short of pace as it runs away from her.
    • 1' Almost an early chance for Russia as Sidorovskaya gets a fine cross in, but Bardsley gets there before Morozova.
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 16:57 Sergei Lavrentyev (Russia): "England are among the favourites in any tournament. They were the runners-up four years ago. They are a top team with huge experience. England are very well organised and balanced in all departments. They play modern football and have everything they need to play that."
    • 16:55 Big news for England is that there are no changes from the side that had what can only be described as a nightmare against Spain who, remember, in women's football are considered outsiders. So Carney and Smith stay on the bench.
    • 16:50 TEAMS - England: Bardsley, A Scott, Houghton, Stoney, Bassett, J Scott, Asante, Williams, Yankey, Aluko, White; Subs: Brown, Chamberlain, Bradley, Bonner, Bronze, Carney, Nobbs, Moore, Smith, Clarke, Duggan, Susi /// Todua, Savchenkova, Kostyukova, Medved, Tsybutovich, Petrova, Terekhova, Sidorovskaya, Morozova, Sochneva, Korovkina; Subs: Grichenko, Shirokova, Dyachkova, Bessolova, Pertseva, Makarenko, Stepanenko, Pozdeeva, Skotnikova, Gordeeva, Kurochkina, Shlyapina
