In the second match, Norway claimed its place in the quarterfinal with a 4-1 penalty shoot-out victory over Australia after an enthralling 1-1 draw in Nice. Isabell Herlosven scored the opener, but Elise Kellond-Knight scored directly from a corner seven minutes from time to force extra-time. Photo: Getty Images
Herlovsen's 31st-minute goal meant she has now scored six goals in the World Cup, with this being her second in the knockout stage.
Herlosven's goal also meant Australia became the fourth different nation to concede at least 50 goals at the FIFA Women's World Cup, alongside Canada (51), Japan (57) and Nigeria (63). Photo: Getty Images
In extra-time, Alanna Kennedy was sent off after tugging on the shirt of Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland as she raced through on goal and Kennedy was the last defender. She became the first Australian to be sent off at the World Cup since Alicia Ferguson vs China in 1999. It was also the first straight red card shown at this year's tournament. Photo: Getty Images
