Wang strikes late for China
 Women's Football News 12 Jun 2015
China 1 (Lisi Wang 90) Holland 0
An injury time goal from Lisi Wang gave China a valuable victory to kick start their World Cup campaign. 
The win was no more than China deserved after dominating all the way through the match but having missed a succession of chances before the late, late strike.
With the teams having experienced contrasting fortunes in their opening matches, the game started slowly but came to life as the first half wore on. Holland did produce an opportunity as a pass from Manon Melis was latched onto by Vivianne Miedema but, under pressure from two defenders, she was unable to hit the target.
China began to seize the initiative and Peng Han did well on the left, teasing Desiree van Lunteren and making her way into the area where she sent the full back the wrong way again before her shot was turned over the bar by Sari van Veenendaal. Moments later, Jiali Tang's shot was parried away by van Veenendaal who was able to grab the ball safely after Peng Han returned it into the area for Guixin Ren to head goalwards.
The second half saw China take control of the match but also become frustrated due to their inability to put their chances away. Tang was having a fine match in midfield and she again tested van Veenendaal with a strike after cutting in from the left.
Then, after being fed by Shuang Wang, Tang unleashed a powerful shot from 25 yards which came back off the bar.
Holland responded with a rare chance of their own, Danielle van de Dook sliding an inch perfect pass into the path of Melis but she sent her shot wide. Fei Wang also had to make a brave save at the feet of Miedema and required treatment for a shoulder injury.
China continued to press in the dying minutes and their best move of the game ended with further anguish. A crisp passing move culminated with Shuang Wang and Jun Ma combining to find Peng Han who returned the ball across goal for an unmarked Ma who sidefooted over the bar from six yards.
However as the game entered injury time, China were finally rewarded. Ruyin Tan clipped a superb long pass inside Merel van Dongen and Lisi Wang stole in to stab the ball past van Veenendaal for the winning goal.
