Cameroon to face England in last 16 after injury-time winner

74

Ajara Nchout scored two superb goals, including an injury-time winner, as Cameroon dramatically beat New Zealand 2-1 to reach the last 16 of the World Cup, where they will face England.

Nchout turned inside Ria Percival in the 95th minute and superbly curled in the winner to put Cameroon through.

They were heading out after Aurelle Awona sliced a volley into her own net with 10 minutes remaining for 1-1.

Nchout had put her side ahead in the second half with a lovely, dinked goal.

Cameroon finished on three points and, like Group A side Nigeria, went through courtesy of having scored one goal more than Group F’s third-placed Chile.
