China secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Women's World Cup with a 1-0 win over Cameroon.

The 1999 runners-up, who failed to qualify for the 2011 tournament in Germany, were without coach Hao Wei as he served a one-match ban.

But Wang Shanshan gave them the lead after 12 minutes and Cameroon, playing at their first finals, could not find a way past the Chinese defence.

China face the winners of Monday's game between the United States and Colombia.
