Late goal beats World Champions
 Women's Football England International News - 7 Mar 2017
 
United States 0 England 1
Ellen White grabbed an 89th-minute winner as England battled to a brilliant 1-0 victory over world champions USA to earn their first points of this year's SheBelieves Cup in a freezing New Jersey.
 
In front of a sell out crowd of 25,000 at the Red Bull Arena, the Lionesses frustrated the 2015 World Cup winners with a gritty display before White poked home from close range at the death to pinch a historic win.
 
England had only beaten the Americans three times before, but a superbly organised defensive effort meant they were good value for the victory.
 
The teams went into the break locked at 0-0 following a first half of few chances and although the side who are top of the world rankings were largely on top after the interval, England's backline held firm in the face of pressure before stunning the home fans late on.
 
Coach Mark Sampson only retained four players from the starting XI which suffered a last-gasp 2-1 defeat to France on Wednesday and opted for a formation change - with the 3-5-2 abandoned for a 4-4-2, with a midfield diamond.
 
The USA also made seven changes from their victory over Germany and both teams struggled to gain a foothold in a cagey opening to proceedings.
 
Demi Stokes had to be alert to clear a dangerous looking ball from her own six yard box before Chamberlain produced a brilliant 18th minute save - repelling American debutant Rose Lavelle's powerful effort from six yards out.
 
Down the other end, the ball fell kindly to Nikita Parris in the box but the Manchester City striker was denied by a great reaction save from Harris, while Toni Duggan fired narrowly over from 20 yards.
 
Early in the second half, the dangerous Lavelle shot over the bar after neatly cutting in from the right as the hosts began to get on top.
 
But Duggan almost gave the Lionesses the lead as her 25-yard free kick bounced awkwardly in front of Harris before the American stopper managed to claw the ball away.
 
Just as the game looked to be heading for a goalless draw, Lucy Bronze's thunderbolt from the edge of the area came back off the bar and substitute White tenaciously reached the rebound first to prod in from close range.
