Duggan Fires England To Final

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Toni Duggan emerged from the bench to help book England Women's place in the Cyprus Cup final on Monday.

The Everton Ladies forward grabbed the Lionesses' third in a 3-1 win over New Zealand to set up a showdown with Canada on Wednesday afternoon.

Entering the fray as an 80th-minute substitute, Duggan rounded goalkeeper Erin Naylor to fire cooly into an empty net in the closing moments.

It was the 21-year-old's second senior international goal, having opened her account days earlier in the 4-4 draw against Scotland.

After that game, Duggan said: "I was really happy to get my first start and it’s always good as a striker to score but I’d have sacrificed that goal for the team winning."

Jill Scott and Rachel Brown are also in the squad and both started the draw against Scotland, with midfielder Scott also playing the full 90 minutes of today's win.
