On Wednesday in the deciding game, both sides were cautious in the first half with no clear cut chances for either team.

As she did in the first two games, Upton was on target for Ireland with ten minutes remaining, notching her third penalty strike of the series.

But with the Olympic champions chasing for an equalizer, they were rewarded with just four minutes to play as Izzy Petter finished clinically to level proceedings.
