BBC Sport - Women's World Cup 2015: Controversial penalty gives Canada win

Canada win with controversial penalty

Canada's Christine Sinclair scores a controversial stoppage-time penalty to give the hosts a 1-0 victory over China in the opening game of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

The game looked to be heading for a goalless conclusion until China's Zhao Rong was adjudged to have brought down Adriana Leon in the box in stoppage time, with Sinclair slotting the spot-kick for her 154th goal in 224 international games.

The first match of the tournament was watched by more than 53,000 inside the Commonwealth Stadium, making it the best attended match in Canadian men or women's football history.
