Ellen White doubled her side's advantage in first-half stoppage time. Her initial strike was ruled out for offside, but VAR overturned the decision which prompted wild scenes.

The Cameroon players were livid with the decision and protested in the middle of the pitch.

Cameroon then thought they had pulled one back though VAR ruled out the goal for offside. Again, sparking chaotic scenes with Cameroon players in tears as they remonstrated on the touchline.
