China’s last gasp win means they move level with Netherlands on 3 points. Group A is wide open. Can New Zealand make it even more interesting with a 1-0 win over Canada???

90+1 mins – GOAL CHINA 1-0 Netherland (Wang Lisi)

China lost their game against Canada to 90th minute goal, and today they’ve won by one. Ma Jun’s delightful ball played into the box which van Veenendaal comes for it, hesitates and Wang Lisi prods it past her! They score with their 26th shot.

How close can China go?

That is her 9th shot on goal, but she has yet to find a way past van Veenendaal.
