Germany and England play to 2-2 draw in the SheBelieves Cup
HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Ellen White scored two goals and England played to a 2-2 draw with Germany in the SheBelieves Cup Sunday at Red Bull Arena.
Earlier, United States tied France 1-1. The tournament’s final two matches will be played Wednesday in Orlando, Florida.
Germany took the early lead on Hasret Kayikci’s goal in the 17th minute, but White scored an equalizer about a minute later. The Germans took the lead on an own goal in the second half before White scored her second in the 73rd minute.
Germany fell 1-0 to the United States in the opening match of the She Believes Cup on Thursday in Columbus, Ohio, while England downed France 4-0.
Germany, the No. 2 ranked team in the world, won gold at the 2016 Olympics. Afterward, longtime coach Silvia Neid stepped down and was replaced by former national team defender Steffi Jones.
Third-ranked England is coached by former Manchester United defender Phil Neville after the dismissal of coach Mark Sampson last year.
