BLUES Ladies midfielder Jade Moore came on as a second half substitute during England’s opening Women’s World Cup defeat at the hands of France.

Moore replaced Katie Chapman with 15 minutes remaining in Moncton, Canada, on Tuesday night but failed to make in impact as England lost their Group E opener.

Eugenie Le Sommer scored the only goal of the game for France on 29 minutes.

England will look to get their World Cup campaign back on track this Saturday when they face Mexico before ending the group stage with a match against Colombia next Wednesday.

Sampson’s side will have to pick up points in either or both of those matches to be in with a chance of progressing to the last 16.

Sampson added: “As we grow into the tournament we will find more rhythm.

“We’ll be ready for Mexico. There’s already an enthusiasm in the dressing room for the next game. We want to get ourselves to the next level.

“Of course we are disappointed with the result. But we’ve got two games coming up to prepare for. I’ve got some hungry players on the bench who are keen to get involved.”
