Norway women end China challenge
Norway's Isabell Herlovsen opened the scoring for her side against China
Herlovsen celebrates her goal for Norway against China
Norway reached the Women's World Cup semi-finals after securing a narrow 1-0 win over hosts China.

China fell behind in the first-half when Wang Kun's ponderous defending enabled Isabell Herlovsen to score.

Norway, who now play Germany, were worthy winners, and Ingvild Stensland went close when she hit the woodwork.

China deployed four fowards for much of the second half, but Lina Pan shot over the bar and Yan Bi blazed high as the hosts failed to find a breakthrough.
