Scott clinches draw for England
By Tony Leighton

Alex Scott
Scott earned a share of the spoils for England in China
England recovered from a 2-0 defeat to China to draw 1-1 with the USA in their second game at the China Cup.

Manager Hope Powell recalled Rachel Yankey and Eniola Aluko to the starting line-up after both were left on the bench against China.

Poor marking allowed Heather O'Reilly to head the Americans in front after just 17 minutes.

But England hit back through Arsenal right-back Alex Scott two minutes into the second half.

It was the first goal England had scored against America since a 2-0 victory in 1988 and came after six successive defeats.

They now take on Germany - against whom they have lost 15 times in a row - in Tuesday's final fixture of the four-nation tournament.
