SINSHEIM, Germany (AP) – Last-gasp goals from Hannah Wilkinson and captain Rebecca Smith earned New Zealand a 2-2 draw with Mexico at the Women's World Cup on Tuesday.
Wilkinson scored in the fourth minute of injury time, after Smith connected in the 90th, to deny Mexico its first win at a World Cup.
Stephany Mayor gave Mexico the perfect start when she scored in the 2nd, and Maribel Dominguez made it 2-0 in the 29th.
Mexico needed a high-scoring win and a favor from Japan to make the quarterfinals. But England's 2-0 win in the other Group B game eliminated Mexico. New Zealand was already out of contention.
