Canada against New Zealand
There was little action of note after the storm delay in Edmonton

Canada and New Zealand played out a goalless draw in a Women's World Cup match delayed by a severe thunderstorm.

After only five minutes, play was suspended for half an hour in Edmonton because of lightning and heavy rain.

When the match resumed, Amber Hearn was fouled to give the Kiwis a penalty but her spot-kick struck the crossbar.

The point leaves Canada top with one group match left, but the four Group A games so far have seen just three goals, two of those in stoppage time.

New Zealand have now failed to find the back of net in their last five contests.

They are in their fourth World Cup but are still searching for their first victory in the finals.
