Jess Sigsworth opened her World Cup account with the England u20s - helping the side to a point against South Korea.

Martha Harris’ second half strike cancelled out Sodam Lee’s 15th minute penalty as the pair shared the spoils in Canada last night.

Doncaster Belles striker Sigsworth, of Auckley, took up a central midfield role for Mo Marley’s Young Lions, before coming off in the 82nd minute for Abbeyleigh Stringer.

England are next in action on August 9, against Mexico, before taking on Nigeria five days later as they bid to qualify from Group C.

Games are being broadcast on British Eurosport.
