Leverkusen, Germany – Jill Scott scored a second-half goal and assisted on another to resurrect England's World Cup campaign with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over New Zealand on Friday.
For more than an hour, England was in trouble but tall midfielder Scott turned things around with a 63rd minute header and a low pass to Jess Clarke for an 81st-minute winner.
England moved into second place in Group B with four points, behind Japan, which beat Mexico 4-0 in the other group game to advance to the quarterfinals. With two 2-1 losses, New Zealand was eliminated.
England now plays Japan in Tuesday's last group game.
