Group E: Miedema shoots the Netherlands in knockout phase
Netherlands – Cameroon 3-1: The 2017 European champions prevailed 3-1 against Cameroon in Valenciennes. The Netherlands proved to be on the best side, especially at the lead. After a sparkling clean move, striker Vivianne Miedema finished off the beautiful cross from Shanice van de Sanden in the penalty area to make it 1-0. Shortly thereafter, Cameroon came to a somewhat surprising equalizer.
However, the Africans could not stop the Netherlands after the break. Dominique Bloodworth (48.) and again Miedema (85.) made for clear circumstances. After her 60th goal, Miedema is the new record scorer in her country – at the age of 22 (!). Thanks to their second win in Match 2, the Oranje Leeuwinen are in the last 16.
Canada – New Zealand 2: 0: A few hours later Canada followed the Netherlands into the knockout stage. The North Americans, who had already won their World Cup starting game, prevailed in Grenoble 2-0 against New Zealand. Jessie Fleming opened the scoring shortly after the break after a fine attack (48.). Nicholas Prince was responsible for the victory save 10 minutes before the end. Thus, Canada and the Netherlands duel on Thursday for the group victory.
