England were made to rue their missed chances as they conceded a late goal to draw with Australia in a friendly.

The Lionesses led from the 21st minute, when Fran Kirby added to her goal against Brazil on Saturday with a well-taken opening strike from close range.

They then wasted a number of good opportunities, while Lucy Staniforth had a goal ruled out for offside.

And Australia made them pay at Craven Cottage when Clare Polkinghorne headed in from a corner with six minutes left.

More to follow.
