Super-sub Lucy puts England on verge
 Women's Football News 30 Nov 2013
 
England 2 (Plumptre 27, Porter 59) Austria 1 (Wasserbauer 15)
England are just one win away from a place in the semi finals of the UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship after a 2-1 victory over Austria in Chesterfield. 
 
A goal apiece from Ashleigh Plumptre and substitute Lucy Porter cancelled out Nina Wasserbauer's early opener and handed Lois Fidler's side a deserved three points in front of another excellent attendance of 2,011.
 
Italy are definitely through to the last four following their 2-0 win over Portugal earlier in the day - and the Young Lions can join now them with victory over the Portuguese in the final group game on Monday.
 
England started with the same eleven as Tuesday and Evie Clarke tested the Austrian keeper early on, but her 20-yard shot was straight down the middle and Carolin Größinger gathered with ease.
 
Neither side had taken control of the game when the visitors took the lead on 15 minutes. The ball bounced around the box from an Austrian free kick and Wasserbauer converted low into the corner, albeit via a deflection on the edge of the six yard box.
 
England came again, though, and Chloe Kelly headed a Plumptre cross wide just after the restart. Plumptre, the Derby County winger, went one better shortly after and levelled with a header from Keira Walsh's left sided free kick.
 
This goal gave England the momentum and some nice footwork on the edge of the box from Clarke then presented the Young Lions with a decent chance to take the lead, but Größinger was off her line quickly to deny Kelly.
 
Both sides started the second half brightly with Austria's Viktoria Pinther and England's Walsh firing long range efforts just off target.
 
Fidler introduced Porter for Clarke just before the hour and the Aston Villa midfielder made an instant impact. The impressive Walsh scampered down the right and delivered a low cross into the box. The ball evaded everyone and Porter was on hand to convert from close range at the back post - and hand her side an well-earned victory.
