FULL-TIME China 1-0 Cameroon
China will play either USA or Colombia in the Quarter-Final. Cameroon should be proud of dominating one of the top teams in the world, but will have to improve their clinical edge in future years.
Yango plays a pass into the six-yard box, when Wang Fei claims
Play resumes, with Han Peng, heavily bandaged, back on the field. There will be another minute or two added on.
A stoppage as Han Peng needs treatment after an aerial clash with Meffometou Tcheno. The Chinese player is bleeding, and China have made all three subs.
90+1 mins – China Sub
Gu Yasha replaces Wang Shanshan. Four minutes of additional time.
87 mins – CLOSE
Both sides have glorious chances. Wang Shanshan is through one-on-one, but she hesitates in the box and Manie makes a wonderful last-ditch tackle. And then, Onguene’s cross picks out Ngani, but her header goes just wide of the far post.
86 mins – CLOSE
China have a free-kick on the left-wing. Wang Shuang curls the ball with venom to the near post, but Ngono Mani palms the ball behind for a corner which China waste.
The ball sits up nicely for Enganamouit, but her effort goes wide.
Enganamouit looks to have picked out Agathe Ngani in a goal-scoring position, but somehow Ngani fails to make contact with the ball. She then tries to make amends by picking out Enganamouit, but her header goes wide.
79 mins – CLOSE
From just inside the box, the ball sets up nicely for Lou Jiahui who tries to lob the keeper, but Ngo Ndom makes an incredible diving save to tip the ball around the post. China waste the corner.
74 mins – CLOSE
Liu Shanshan plays a delightful ball through, splitting the Cameroon defence into the path of Wang Shanshan, but she is tackled bravely by Ngo Ndom. The ball spins, and Wang Shanshan fires the ball wide. Ngo Ndom needs some treatment, but she is able to continue.
74 mins – Cameroon Sub
Henriette Akaba replaces Madeleine Ngono Mani
72 mins – China Sub
Lou Jiahui replaces Wang Lisi.
Nearly another goal for Wang Shanshan. Wu Haiyan plays a delightful ball over the defence, and Wang Shanshan made her run perfectly, but the ball runs through to Ngo Ndom.
67 mins – CLOSE
Onguene’s cross from the left-wing picks out Nchout at the far post, but her volley is straight at Wang Fei.
64 mins – CLOSE
Onguene’s dinked ball into the six yard box, and under challenge from Enganamouit, Wang Fei punches the ball onto the crossbar and the ball goes behind. The corner is cleared to Meffometou Tcheno whoes 25 yard shot goes well over.
64 mins – Cameroon Sub
Ajara Nchout replaces Francine Zouga
61 mins – CLOSE
Yvonne Leuko’s cross picks out Enganamouit who beats Li Dongna in the air, but she heads just wide.
60 mins – CLOSE
Again, it should be 2-0. Han Peng plays a long pass over the Cameroon back four to send Wang Shansang through, but as Ngo Ndom comes out to close the angle, the Chinese striker places the ball just wide of the right post.
Ngoni Mani chests the ball, before turning to volley from just outside the area, but it is straight at the keeper. The bounce troubled the keeper, but it never looked like beating Wang Fei.
Cameroon have had plenty of possession, but so far it looks like China who are more likely to score.

49 mins – CLOSE
This should be 2-0. Han Peng’s cross finds Wang Lisi at the near post, but she fails to hit the target with her first-time shot, possibly put off by Aurelle Awona’s attempt to head clear the cross.
Cameroon have a free-kick on the left-wing. Manie puts a beautiful ball into the danger area, but the referee spots some pushing in the box and awards a free-kick to China.
The second half starts. Can Cameroon find an equaliser?
HALF-TIME China 1-0 Cameroon
Cameroon are on top, having 11 attempts on goal compared to only 3 for China. But, as it stands, China are going through to the Quarter-Finals, thanks to Wang Shanshan’s goal.
Tang Ruyin whips in a cross to the box, but it is just too high for Wang Shanshan.
China have a corner which is cleared three times befor Ren Guixan’s shot takes a large deflection to divert it wide. The next corner is cleared to Hang Pen whose shot takes a deflection to take the sting out of it.
40 mins – China Sub
20 year-old Wang Shuang replaces Tang Jiali
Cameroon have a free-kick, 25 yards from goal on the right wing. Manie whips a ball into the box, which is cleared to Meffometou Tcheno. She shoots, but her driven effort is straight at Wang Fei who makes the save.
Nearly a wonderful move. Ngono Mani plays the ball to Enganamouit who plays a through ball towards Onguene, but at the final moment, Wu Haiyan intercepts and deals with the ball.
Cameroon are on top, but the Chinese defence is resolutely defending. Raissa Feudijo tries from distance, but it was an easy save.
23 mins – CLOSE
Cameroon have a free-kick, 30 yards from goal. Enganamouit’s effort deflects off the wall, and into the box where Onguene shoots into the side-netting.
Cameroon launch a counter attack and have Gabrielle Onguene down the right, but her cut-back was just behind Ngono Mani and Enganamouit. Yvonne Leuko recovers, but her cross is easily claimed by Wang Fei.
Cameroon have a corner, and Zouga’s delivery picks out Ngono Mani, but she heads over.
China have their first corner. Wang Lisi’s corner reached the far post where Li Dongna controlled, before passing to Wang Shanshan whose first-time volley just beat the outstretched dive of Ngo Ndom.
Gaelle Enganamouit shoots from distance, but it hits a defender. She reacts quickly to the rebound, but can’t find the target
Half-chance for China as Wang Shanshan converts her cross into a shot, but it never looks like troubling Ngo Ddom.
Cameroon have another half-chance, this time through Francine Zouga’s long shot, but it was a simple save for Wang Fei.
Cameroon have the first chance as Madeleine Ngono Mani shoots over in the box.
A win over the Netherlands and a draw against New Zealand was enough for China to reach the Last 16, whereas for Cameroon it was wins over Ecuador and Switzerland. China have Assistant Coach Chang Weiwei in charge due to their Head Coach Hao Wei was sent off against New Zealand after holding onto the ball.
