Jill Scott's late equaliser earned England women a 1-1 draw at home to Belgium in their Euro 2017 qualifier.
Belgium went ahead when goalkeeper Karen Bardsley's missed clearance let Janice Cayman slot into an empty net.
It was the first goal England had conceded in a home qualifier in almost 14 years, and for a long time afterwards their performance was flat.
But with five minutes to play Scott prodded home Karen Carney's blocked header to earn a point in Rotherham.
The result lifted England up to second in Group 7, one point behind leaders Belgium.
Mark Sampson's side, who have a game in hand on Belgium and third-placed Serbia, travel to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Tuesday, when Belgium meet Estonia.
'A blip in women's goalkeeping'
Bardsley's mistake was the game's major talking point until Scott's equaliser.
The Manchester City keeper had plenty of time to cope with a long, bouncing ball forward but failed to connect with a rushed attempted clearance on the edge of the penalty area. Cayman nipped in to slide home.
Former England keeper Rachel Brown-Finnis, watching in the BBC studio, said: "It was a really uncharacteristic error from Karen.
"It's disappointing that tonight will be highlighted as negatively as it will be for goalkeeping in the women's game, because the standard really is much improved.
"Certainly at the World Cup last summer there were many examples of how far female goalkeepers have progressed - the standard has come on a lot. Tonight is a blip."
Will Bardsley keep her place?
England manager Mark Sampson: "Change Karen Bardsley? No chance.
"She has been outstanding for this team. She is a superb goalkeeper. She has bailed us out many times. We'll give her that one and she will be back for Tuesday.
"We wanted to win, so it's a disappointing result for us. Credit to Belgium - they were well organised, physical, and showed great character.
"We came back from a strange goal to get an equaliser and were unfortunate not to win it in the end.
"On another night we could have scored five or six but we just didn't execute our final ball."
Belgium a rising force in women's game
Before the match England manager Mark Sampson described Belgium as "an up-and-coming women's football nation".
Ranked 28th in Fifa's rankings, they have never qualified for the World Cup or the European Championship.
But their results against Euro 2017 Group 7 rivals Bosnia-Herzegovina, and now their performance against England, suggest that will soon change.
Ives Serneels's side hammered Bosnia-Herzegovina 6-0 at home and 5-0 away in their first two matches of this qualification campaign. In comparison, England managed a 1-0 win.
Although their opening goal at the New York Stadium was fortunate, Belgium were good value for their lead for much of the match, defending solidly and occasionally threatening on the break as Bardsley impressed with some fine handling and alert reactions.
England may have salvaged a point through Scott, but this was not the kind of performance expected of a team that finished third in last summer's World Cup in Canada.
