Netherlands 2-1 Japan | Women’s World Cup Highlights, Wednesday, June 26, 2019
Lieke Martens' late penalty sends the Netherlands into the Women's World Cup quarter-finals at the expense of Japan.
Netherlands were largely in control in the first half, going ahead in the 17th minute, but a goal late in the first period from Yui Hasegawa evened things up.
But in a complete twist of fate, captain Saki Kumagai was harshly penalised for handball in the area and Martens converted the penalty. The Dutch will now play Italy in the quarter-finals.
