With two-minutes on the clock English umpire Frances Block penalised China for a tackle made while still wearing a facemask, from the previous corner. Barrioneuvo converted and silenced a crowd buoyed by a second-half Chinese rally during which Fu Barong’s 63rd minute equaliser raised the biggest cheer of the week.

Barrioneuvo converted and silenced a crowd buoyed by a second-half Chinese rally during which Fu Barong’s 63rd minute equaliser raised the biggest cheer of the week.
The defending champions produced two moments of brilliance in a game where it mattered most &ndash first Daniela Sruoga’s reverse strike in the 22nd minute to open the scoring and second, Belen Succi’s superb stick save from a Ma Yibo PC when the score was 2-1 to las Leonas.
China’s other goals were from Wang Zhishuang (PC, 30mins)and Zhao Yudiao (PC, 60mins). Silvina D’Elia (PC, 45mins) and Rosario Luchetti (FG, 49mins) were also on the scorecard for Argentian.
