Saturday, 15 Jun, 9.54 pm

Valenciennes (France), June 15 (IANS) Vivianne Miedema became the Netherlands' all-time leading goal scorer in a 3-1 victory over Cameroon, earning the reigning European champions a spot in round of 16 with two wins in as many Group E matches at FIFA Women's World Cup, here on Saturday.

Miedema, who turns 23 this July, improved her tally in the national team to 60 after scoring in each half of the match, reports Xinhua news agency.

Cameroon once levelled the score just two minutes after Miedema's deadlock-breaker, but Dominique Bloodworth put the Oranjeleeuwinnen in front again shortly into the second half.
