England women's impressive form continued on the second day of the six nations Korean Telecom Cup with a 2-2 draw against the host nation. It was another close encounter between teams rated fifth and sixth in the world respectively.

England, who scored in the third minute in their opening day 2-1 victory against Australia, started even better against South Korea with Leisa King deflecting in a cross from Mel Clewlow in the second minute. The lead was to last less than a minute before the Korean captain Seong Eun Kim scored the first of her two goals. The Koreans moved the ball around quickly in front of goal to outflank Carolyn Reid for the equaliser.

Just seven minutes into the second half the home team took the lead, Kim again being on hand for the final touch. England responded also at a penalty corner a few minutes later, with Anna Bennett getting the final touch.
