Co-host New Zealand kicked off the Women’s World Cup campaign with an upset victory over Norway on Thursday, securing the country’s first win in tournament history. New Zealand had failed to win a game at their five previous World Cup appearances. On Thursday, forward Hannah Wilkinson fired home from close range from Jacqui Hand‘s pinpoint cross in the 48th minute to secure a memorable victory. Norway, champions in 1995, were disjointed and rarely looked as if they would get back on level terms. The crowd of 42,137 — a record for a football match in New Zealand — let out a roar as the match came to an end. The win put New Zealand on track toward their goal of getting out of the group stage. They face the Philippines on Tuesday.
