England moved one step closer to the knockout stages of the FIFA Women's Under-20 World Cup following a well contested 1-1 draw with Brazil.
Georgia Stanway opened the scoring from the spot in the 11th minute after Chloe Peplow was held back by Brazilian centre back Tainara.
The forward's assertive penalty into the top corner was her second goal in consecutive games following her strike in the 3-1 win over North Korea on Sunday.
Anna Patten thought she had doubled England's lead 25 minutes from time after her header found the bottom corner only to be denied by the officials for a foul.
Brazil created several chances in the second half, the best of the bunch falling to Geyse Ferreira whose poked effort was expertly handled by Sandy MacIver.
England's backline were tested throughout but captain Grace Fisk and her defence stood firm and were agonisingly close to keeping a clean sheet their resolute performance merited.
However, Brazil levelled with only moments to go as substitute Ariadina Borges strike from the edge of the box zipped past Sandy MacIver and nestled in the bottom corner.
Mo Marley's side face Mexico in their final group game on Sunday and need to avoid defeat in order to secure their place in the last eight.
England: Sandy MacIver, Anna Patten, Maz Pacheco, Mollie Rouse (sub Georgia Allen 65mins), Grace Fisk, Megan Finnigan, Alessia Russo (sub Taylor Hinds 83mins), Georgia Stanway, Chloe Peplow, Chloe Kelly, Charlie Wellings (sub Lauren Hemp 52mins). Subs not used: Niamh Charles, Ali Johnson, Ellie Roebuck, Esme Morgan, Rinsola Babajide, Zoe Cross, Emily Ramsey.
