Germany level late with Lions

England 1-1 Germany
Women's U23 International match
Wednesday 1 July 2009
Bisham Abbey

Fern Whelan looked to have given England a narrow victory over the might of German, but the visitors levelled the scores with just five minutes remaining.

Whelan had headed into the lead after just 15 minutes, but substitute Marie Pollmann grabbed an equaliser late in the game.

The game was played in sweltering conditions with the temperature reaching somewhere around 30 degrees.

Despite the heat England started the match at a high tempo and dominated early on. Fern Whelan’s headed goal from a corner after a quarter of an hour gave them a deserved lead.

England held the lead until half-time with relative ease as the Germans struggled to test their goal with any attempts of note. Indeed Carly Telford in goal barely had a save to make, with an easy catch from a long distance shot the closest Germany came.

The tempo dropped in the second half, with the heat taking its toll on the players. The play remained even for the majority of the second half, with England still looking comfortable.

A couple of half chances fell the way of the home side, but they were not taken and Germany capitalised on a late opportunity to level. Going into the final 15 minutes, Germany began to pile on the pressure which finally resulted in Pollmann notching the leveller late on.

England U23 face their next official test against USA on Tuesday 7 July.

England ensure no fireworks for USA

 England 2-0 USA
Women's U23 training match
Saturday 4 July 2009
Bisham Abbey

England and America faced eachother on 4 July for an informal training match, with three periods of 30 minutes allowing greater flexibility for the coaches to try out different players and formations.

Additionally there were no restrictions on substitutes, with a ‘roll on, roll off’ policy agreed by both teams prior to the match.

The first period saw England dominate and comfortably controlling the play. Despite enjoying the greater possession and a number of attacking opportunities, England did not register a goal to reward their impressive play.

In the second 30 minutes England hit early with Rachel Williams grabbing a goal after just five minutes of the period. Although Brent Hills' players were quick out of the blocks, USA saw more of the ball in this period and pushed England back into their own half for the majority of the remaining time.

Despite greater possession, the US rarely got into the penalty area and were restricted to a speculative long range effort as the England keeper was caught out of her area. A few of half chances fell England’s way but generally neither goal was threatened.

Into the third period, England retook the initiative and showed greater stamina in warm and humid conditions. The chances began to come and England got a deserved second goal with eleven minutes remaining in the game.

Dunia Susi broke through the American defence, latching onto a fine through pass, and the Chelsea defender cooly slotted the ball past Olsen to double England's lead.

England
1 Marie Hourihan, 2 Sophie Perry, 3 Ellie Gilliatt (14 Mel Sutcliffe, 30), 4 Rachel Williams (16 Lizzie Edwards, 53), 5 Fern Whelan, 6 Sophie Bradley (c), 7 Becky Hall (12 Dunia Susi, 70), 8 Charlotte Young ,9 Ellen White (18 Gemma Davison, 38) ,10 Natasha Dowie, 11 Dannii Bird (15 Claire Rafferty, 49)

Substitutes Not Used
13 Carly Telford, 17 Kim Dixson

USA
24 Kristin Olsen, 2 Lindsey Kowal, 3 Megan Jesolva, 20 Brianne Young, 5 Caitlin Farrell, 14 Laura Heyboer, 7 Bianca D’Agostino, 8 Ashley Bowyer, 9 Veronica Perez ,10 Katie Schoepfer, 11 Kendra Chandhoke

Substitutes
12 Crystal Wagner, 6 Liz Redmond, 21 Ella Stephan, 15 Megan Ohai, 19 Kiersten Dallstream, 18 Kristin Arnold
