End of 2nd Half
FT
And that is that! Italy are into the quarter-finals after a ruthless display against China.
The Italians scored with two of their four shots on target, while China will be ruing the 18 missed chances, with only five of those finding the target.
Japan or the Netherlands await Italy, and those two are in action later tonight.
90+3'
GOOD SAVE! Almost another for Giacinti, but Peng is on hand to make a low save.
90'
Four minutes are signalled just as Peng turns a Giacinti strike wide of the goal - though a goal-kick is given...
88'
Italy managing the final minutes really well here - they've got the ball in the China half and they're not rushing this at all. Rightly so, too.
84'
Time running out and China are getting frustrated - their World Cup run is almost over...
82'
Italy looking set to become the sixth European side into the last eight - that would be a record in the World Cup, while the Netherlands could yet make it seven tonight if they beat the Netherlands.
USA the sole non-European side at the moment...
79'
Linari's first mistake of the match as she allows a ball to bounce over her, but she makes amends to intercept Li just when the Chinese forward was about to pounce.
76'
Captain Gama taking no chances as she clears the ball under pressure from Li. 15 minutes for China to somehow find at least two goals...
74'
China certainly giving this a go but Italy are clearing and intercepting it when it truly matters.
71'
Third and final sub for Italy as Rosucci comes on for Bonansea, who won't be adding to her tally of three WWC goals this afternoon.
69'
A China corner is met by Lin but it bounces wide of the post with Zhang unable to stretch to meet it.
67'
Stats reading pretty even with four shots on target apiece, while China have enjoyed 61% possession. It's a cliche, but there's only one stat that counts...
63'
Forward for a forward that change. No sign of Italy shutting up shop.

No way through for China at the moment. Linari has been a rock for Italy in defence, and though Giuliani's clearances have been questionable, her decison-making has been first class.
58'
A long way back for China!
55'
VAR CHECK! Giacinti goes down in the box and there will be a check for a possible penalty. It looks a little soft... and indeed - play is waved on.
