Erin Nayler had pulled off three superb saves in quick succession to keep New Zealand in with a chance and those stops paid dividends when Awona sliced into her own net in the 80th minute.But, in the final seconds of stoppage time, Nchout came up with a moment of magic, twisting her way into the area before slotting beyond Nayler and booking Cameroon’s place in the knockout stages with the last kick of the game.
