England wins a turbulent quarter-final at the Women's World Cup. The opponent from Cameroon provides almost before half-time almost for a game crash.
Accompanied by fierce protests from Cameroonian opponents, England's women's footballers have moved into the quarter-finals of the World Cup. The team of coach Phil Neville sat down in Valenciennes after several interventions by the German video fever Bastian Dankert 3: 0 (2: 0) and will meet in the next round on Thursday in Le Havre on Norway. Steph Houghton (15 minutes), Ellen White (45. + 4) and Alex Greenwood (58.) scored the goals for the English girls.
Shortly before halftime, the match was even about to break off, as the Cameroonians gathered in protest against the goal decision by Dankert at 2: 0 at the center circle. The German Fifa referee had rightly revised the offside decision of referee Liang Qin (China). Only after several minutes of interruption, the game was continued. In the cabin flight it should have come then to tumultuous scenes and vehement reproaches of Cameroonian women. This continued the discussion about the video evidence at the Women's World Cup. In the second half was on intervention by Dankert the possible 1: 2 Cameroon by Ajara Nchout (48) withdrawn for offside. Violent protests followed again by the Africans, captain Onguene had to convince her colleagues to continue playing. Two more times Qin looked at controversial scenes in the Review Area.
