    MONCTON, Canada -- Mexico erased a halftime deficit to rally for a 1-1 draw with England on Saturday in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup at Moncton Stadium on Saturday.

    It was the third 1-1 draw in Group C, which is wide open heading into the final match day on Wednesday.  Mexico will meet Korea Republic in Toronto, while England and Nigeria square off in Edmonton.

    England was rewarded for its bright first-half performance and took a 1-0 lead in the 36th minute.  After a harmless looking build up, Bethany Mead received a ball on the left, cut the ball towards the middle through a Karla Nieto’s legs and unleashed a shot from 28-yards out inside the right post.

    In the second half, Mexico’s improved cohesion on offense was reflected in the generation of increased scoring opportunities.

    The Tricolor found the equalizer in the 70th minute following a goal kick by England goalkeeper Lizzie Durack that traveled only 16 yards before hitting the ground.  Fabiola Ibarra was there to collect and immediately fired a left-footed shot off the crossbar.  Though it appeared the ball may have crossed the line, Tanya Samarzich swooped in to push it into the goal, leaving no doubt.

    Only three minutes later, England had a chance to go ahead 2-0, but Nikita Parris hammered an attempt from the edge of the six-yard box off the left post.

    Samarzich -- the joint-top scorer at the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship with six goals -- nearly had the winner with eight minutes left in normal time.  The 19-year-old latched onto a poor back-pass, but her close-range attempt was saved by Durack.
