Dutch delight after late winner
 Women's Football World Cup News - 21 Jun 2019
 
The Netherlands took top spot in Group E with a hard earned 2-1 victory in their decider against Canada.
 
Canada were awarded a penalty in the second minute when Janine Beckie was brought down by Desiree van Lunteren but, after consultation with VAR, the foul was deemed to have taken place outside the area.
 
The first half ended goalless but the Dutch took the lead soon after the restart, Sherida Spitse floating a free kick into the area for Anouk Dekker to get inbetween two defenders and head in past Stephanie Labbe.
 
Canada reacted well to going behind and were back on level terms by the hour mark, Jordyn Huitema crossing for Christine Sinclair to score at the far post.
 
The Netherlands were not to be denied though and with fifteen minutes remaining, substitute Lineth Beerensteyn - who had come on for Lieke Martens - got on the end of a van Lunteren cross to prod home from close range and seal a third straight win for her side.
 
Cameroon and New Zealand met each other, knowing that a victory for either side would be likely to take them through to the last sixteen.
 
Cameroon had the better of the first half with the speedy Ajara Nchout latched onto a ball over the top and tried to lob Erin Nayler but her shot just lacked enough height and it was saved. Nayler then made a good smothering save to deny Gabrielle Onguene.
 
Nchout had been a constant threat throughout the match and she gave Cameroon the lead just before the hour with a neat finish after evading two defenders.
 
With ten minutes remaining, Aurelle Awona sliced a clearance into her own net to level the scores and the Football Ferns almost went in front when Betsy Hassett's header brought out an excellent save from Annette Ngo Ndom.
 
The game was to have a sting in its tail though and Nchout was to have the final say, cutting in before curling a shot past Nayler to give Cameroon a winning goal and a date with England in the last sixteen.
