Women’s World Cup Norway 1-0 China
The womens team of Norway reached the semi-finals after securing a narrow 1-0 win over hosts China.
China fell behind in the first-half when Wang Kun’s ponderous defending enabled Isabell Herlovsen to score.
Norway, who now play Germany, were worthy winners, and Ingvild Stensland went close when she hit the woodwork.
China deployed four fowards for much of the second half, but Lina Pan shot over the bar and Yan Bi blazed high as the hosts failed to find a breakthrough.
