England 2 Scotland 1

England opened their World Cup campaign with a narrow victory over rivals Scotland in a game where they showed glimpses of their potential.

After an open start, Nikita Parris scored from the spot on her World Cup debut after the penalty was awarded following a video assistant referee review.

Ellen White doubled the advantage before the break as Phil Neville’s team dominated the first half.

But Scotland, making their World Cup debut and ranked 17 places below England at 20th in the world, took advantage as their opponents eased off in the second half when Claire Emslie slotted in from close range after Steph Houghton’s poor pass.
