Fran Kirby and Karen Carney scored in the second half, and England beat Mexico 2-1 Saturday at the Women’s World Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick.

The English moved into a tie with France for second in Group F with three points and a game to go. Colombia is the surprise leader of the group after a 2-0 upset of France.

The 21-year-old Kirby got the first goal of the World Cup for England when she used a toe poke to beat Cecilia Santiago in the 71st minute. Carney scored on a header in the 82nd minute.

Fabiola Ibarra scored in stoppage time for Mexico.

Mexico, last in its group, plays Wednesday in Ottawa against the French, while England will take on the upstart Colombians.
