Football Ferns lose to Netherlands in extra time
The Football Ferns were minutes away from securing a valuable point in their opening match at the Fifa Women’s World Cup in France, but the Netherlands struck late to claim the spoils and break Kiwi hearts.
Jill Roord proved the hero for the Dutch, the reigning European champions, getting to a looping ball in front of goal ahead of Ferns defender Abby Erceg and keeper Erin Nayler and nodding it over the line in the second minute of stoppage time to give her side a 1-0 win.
The Ferns created three excellent chances in the first hour of the match on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT), but were left to rue not taking them, with Sarah Gregorius’ miss from point-blank range six minutes into the second half the one that will hurt the most.
