WWC 2015: England vs Mexico Match Review

When England faced Mexico both sets of fans were anticipating an interesting game. However, it was England who came out on top after beating Mexico 2-1.

England took on Mexico last weekend in Moncton stadium.

The match gave a lot to the fans with England having 23 shots and Mexico 17. During the first half England looked the more dominant of the two sides but were unable to cause any damage.

England manager Mark Sampson made good on his promise to go more attacking, after he chose to play Fran Kirby, Toni Duggan and Eniola Aluko making for a strong front three. 

It was the second half where Sampson's gamble to paid off when Kirby rounded off a brilliant individual effort to put England ahead in the 70th minute. Substitute Karen Carney then scored a header to double England's lead.

Despite their scoring ability England still showed their defensive issues when Ibarra was able to score late on.

However, England and Mark Sampson were able to hold on to their lead sending them to second in Group F. Mexico's defeat sent them to bottom of the group. Both teams will know their final match is crucial, with two automatic qualifying spots and possibly a third available to progress to the knockout stages.
