Womens World Cup Scotland 3 – 3 Argentina

(26 Jun 2019) – BBC Report: Scotland are out of the Women’s World Cup after a twice-taken added-time penalty gave Argentina a dramatic draw.

The Scots needed to win and Kim Little turned in their opener with Jen Beattie and Erin Cuthbert netting from corners.

It was 3-2 after Milagros Menendez scored and a Florencia Bonsegundo shot went in via the bar and Lee Alexander.

A VAR-awarded spot-kick taken by Bonsegundo was saved by Alexander but she was off her line and, agonisingly, the striker scored second time around.

With 16 minutes to play, Shelley Kerr’s Scots were on course to be one of the four best third-placed sides going into Thursday’s final fixtures in Groups E and F but Argentina’s recovery consigned the Scots to bottom place in Group D.

And Scotland captain Rachel Corsie was unhappy that referee Hyang-ok Ri allowed an Argentina free-kick to be taken while substitute Fiona Brown was coming on, with another substitute, Sophie Howard, ultimately penalised for her challenge on Aldana Cometti.
