The Netherlands reached the women's World Cup quarterfinals for the first time when Lieke Martens' last-gasp penalty earned them a 2-1 victory against Japan on Tuesday.

Martens put the Dutch in front after 17 minutes, only for Yui Hasegawa to level on the stroke of halftime, but the forward sent the European champions through with a spot kick in the last minute.

Japan, who hit the woodwork twice, dominated the second half but lacked the finishing touch.

England must be sharper in second half in knockout stages

NICE, France -- England go into the Women's World Cup knockout stage with three wins from three after beating Japan 2-0, but they will need to address their second-half performance where for much of it they were second best.

The raw statistics show a perfect record for England, who backed up their 2-1 win over Scotland and 1-0 victory over Argentina with a win on Wednesday thanks to clinical finishing from Ellen White, who scored both goals. It is a case of job done, but they have left room for...

Japan bounced back with a 2-1 victory over Scotland on Friday.

Strikers Mana Iwabuchi and Yuika Sugasawa were on the scoresheet as Japan got their women's World Cup campaign back on track with a 2-1 victory over Scotland in Rennes on Friday.

Japan, champions in 2011 and finalists four years ago, were coming off a uninspiring goalless draw with lowly-ranked Argentina in their opener but looked much sharper in the attacking third against Scotland.

They got a breakthrough when striker Iwabuchi controlled a poor headed clearance from Scotland captain Rachel Corsie...

Argentina achieved their first-ever result in a World Cup match on Monday.

Japan's quest to reach a third consecutive women's World Cup final began with a dull goalless draw as Argentina claimed their first-ever point at the tournament on Monday.

Asako Takakura's Japan, ranked seventh in the world, kept almost two-thirds of ball possession in Paris but struggled to find a way past a disciplined Argentine centre-back pairing of Agustina Barroso and Aldana Cometti.

Japan's only meaningful chance came just after the interval when forward Kumi Yokoyama's long-range effort...
