Toni Duggan dashed Russia's hopes of a first-ever UEFA Women's EURO finals win with a dramatic late equaliser that restored 2009 runners-up England's qualifying hopes at the death.

Both these teams lost their opening matches on Friday and it was England who had most of the play. But they had no response to Nelli Korovkina's 38th-minute header until two substitutes, Duggan and Kelly Smith, combined to save the day moments after Duggan had lobbed a shot onto the bar. Both these teams now need to win on Thursday – Russia face Spain and England tackle France – and hope other results go their way.

    The final whistle is blown.
    More late drama in Group C sees the game end level. Both team's are off the mark in the section, but leave themselves needing wins on Thursday to progress. Nelli Korovkina put Russia ahead against the run of play but England toiled and eventually got their reward to keep their hopes alive in added time.

    England are level! Kelly Smith's cross deflects into the path of the substitute and a sweetly struck first-time effort finds the corner of the net. They lost to a late goal against Spain, but have been saved by one today.
