China beat Haiti 1-0 to keep World Cup hopes alive

Despite playing with 10 players for more than an hour, China won.

China registered a 1-0 win over Haiti on Friday in their second game of the Women's World Cup.

Player forward Wang Shuang scored his first goal in the World Cup in the 74th minute.

The penalty was converted by VAR after his teammate Zhang Linyan was fouled in the area.

The victory was only the second time in the history of the Women's World Cup that a team has won with 10 players on the field.

The one-man advantage helped Haiti immensely to take the lead.

In this match, with Haiti pushing additional players, China took advantage of the available space.

Halftime substitute Wang Shuang sent Haiti goalkeeper Carly Thieus the wrong way for the only goal of the game.
