The Philippines defeated co-hosts New Zealand 1–0 for their first win at the World Cup.

The Philippines earned their first win in their first Women's World Cup on Tuesday.

The Philippines beat New Zealand by scoring the first goal in the World Cup.

New Zealand had just five days earlier celebrated their first win in six rounds of the Women's World Cup.

Sarina Bolden scored the historic match-winning goal in the 24th minute to seal the victory for the Philippines.

New Zealand were unable to recover after conceding a Bolden goal late in the match.

New Zealand finished with 67% possession and 14 shots on goal, compared to the Philippines' three goals, but were unable to equalize.

In this match Hannah Wilkinson went close on a few occasions and Jackie Hand hit the post in the 64th.

Philippines coach Alan Stajic said that "I have tears in everyone else's eyes, it's very emotional."
