New Zealand 1 – 1 Brazil

Rosie White 86′ (New Zealand)
Rosie White scored an 85th minute equaliser as the Football Ferns drew 1-1 with world number six Brazil in horrible conditions at Mt Smart Stadium on Monday. Rosie White scored an 85th minute equaliser as the Football Ferns drew 1-1 with world number six Brazil in horrible conditions at Mt Smart Stadium on Monday. After Brazil opened the scoring just two minutes from the break as Cristiane tucked the ball home in a crowded penalty area, it took until the last five minutes for the Football Ferns to draw level. After several near misses from the lively Hannah Wilkinson – who saw two headers come back off the bar – it was substitute White who headed in a Wilkinson cross.
It had seemed, until White’s intervention, the New Zealand side were going to be frustrated in defeat which would have been a harsh penalty on the Football Ferns who controlled possession well and regularly threatened the Brazilian goal throughout the contest in driving rain.
