Magical Miedema breaks another record
 Women's Football World Cup News - 16 Jun 2019
 
Vivianne Miedema rewrote the record books once again as the Netherlands booked their place in the knockout stages of the World Cup with a 3-1 victory over Cameroon in Valenciennes.
 
Roared on by a huge following which made it seem like a home match, the Dutch found it hard to get going against a Cameroon side which once again defended as efficiently as they had in their previous match against Canada.
 
However four minutes before half time, Shanice van de Sanden exchanged passes with Danielle van de Donk before crossing for Miedema to steer a header into the corner of the net from six yards.
 
Dutch delight lasted barely sixty seconds though, a long header forward was chased down by Gabrielle Onguene who nodded the ball past the oncoming Sari van Veenendaal and kept her cool to slide home the equaliser.
 
The Netherlands were back in front two minutes after the break, a free kick picking out Dominique Bloodworth in front of goal and although she initially missed her kick, Christine Manie sliced her clearance straight back to her and this time Bloodworth made no mistake.
 
Cameroon pressed forward in an attempt to get back into the game but could not make an impression on the Dutch defence and the lethal Miedema was to have the final say with five minutes remaining, cutting in from the left to unleash a powerful strike which gave Annette Ngo Ndom no chance. This goal was her 60th for her country and broke the scoring record previously held by Manon Melis.
 
Canada are also in the last sixteen following a dominant display as they beat New Zealand 2-0 in Grenoble.
 
Christine Sinclair headed against the bar early on, with Kadeisha Buchanan's follow up being cleared off the line, but the scoreline was goalless at half time despite Canada being well on top.
 
Three minutes after the restart, they got the breakthrough when Nichelle Prince broke down the left and crossed for Jessie Fleming to sidefoot home at the far post.
 
Erin Nayler produced a brilliant save to keep out a header from Prince but the striker was not to be denied, sealing the win with ten minutes remaining when she tucked home the rebound after Sinclair's initial header had come back off the post.
