But the Canadians, then, produced a lion-hearted performance to level the scores through goals from Brienne Stairs (23rd) and Hannah Haughn (39th). With England already assured of a semi-final berth, it was a do-or-die match for the Savita Punia-led side, with Canada needing just a draw to progress as they had a better goal difference. Locked 2-2, Janneke Schopman’s girls responded brilliantly when Lalremsiami scored off a rebound, after a penalty corner in the 51st minute.
