In an hard fought battle between Denmark and China on Saturday night at HBF park in Perth, Australia. Amali Vangsgaard 89th minute header against China give Denmark 1-0 win on their first Women’s World Cup appearance since 2007. The win made Lars Sondergaard’s side share the top position with England in Group D.

Amalie Vansgaard played a crucial role in helping Denmark secure three points in what was very almost a 0-0 tie. In what turned out to be the game-winning goal, Vansgaard slipped into ideal position on a corner kick and sent a lob into the goal.

China played the superior brand of football throughout the game, despite Denmark winning.

China, who were competing in their third consecutive championships, had the upper hand in the opening period, giving Denmark issues on the wings while preventing their opponents from making any significant attempts despite the presence of two-time UEFA Women’s Player of the Year Harder in attack.
