Vivianne Miedema now has 60 international goals from 77 games.

Vivianne Miedema scored twice to become Netherlands' all-time leading goalscorer as the European champions beat Cameroon 3-1 on Saturday to reach the last 16 at the Women's World Cup.

Women's World Cup 2019: Subs help Netherlands survive close call against New Zealand

LE HAVRE, France -- The Netherlands scored a very late goal to beat New Zealand 1-0 on Tuesday. A header by Jill Roord in the 92nd minute gave the Dutch a precious win in Group E. After Canada's victory on Monday against Cameroon (1-0), the European champions would have been under pressure had they not found the back of the net. On the other hand, New Zealand can be disappointed. The Kiwis produced a superb performance and deserved at least a point. They defended well, while also creating clear...

The double attacking threat of Lieke Martens and Vivianne Miedema failed to deliver despite periods...

2019 Women's World Cup team previews: Netherlands

Few teams saw their reputation enhanced more in the past four years than the Netherlands, which enters this World Cup as reigning European champion and among the betting favorites to lift the trophy this summer. That's a far cry from the team that left its World Cup debut in 2015 as a bit of a bust after stumbling into a short stay in the knockout round following a third-place group finish.

Everything changed with the 2017 UEFA Women's Euros. Hosting that tournament, at a time when the country's...

ESPN's Julie Foudy breaks down Australia's chances of qualifying from Group C, which includes Italy, Brazil and Jamaica.

The Matildas will enter the World Cup on their worst losing run in three years after a 3-0 thrashing by the Netherlands.

Australia showed spark but lacked the clinical finishing of the Dutch in Eindhoven in front of a national record crowd for a women's football match.

A brace from best afield winger Shanice van de Sanden and Vivianne Miedema's sharp effort sent the Netherlands to the World Cup on a high and condemned the Matildas to a confidence-sapping defeat.

Coach Ante Milicic said Australia,...
