Australia is through to the quarter-finals of the Women's Soccer World Cup in China after a dramatic 2-all draw with Canada in their final group game.

Captain and veteran defender Cheryl Salisbury scored a stoppage time goal to secure the point the Matildas needed to finish second in the group.

Australia will probably play either Brazil or China in their quarter-final on Sunday.

The Matildas fell behind to a first minute goal in Chengdu, before Collette McCallum equalised, but trailed a second time before Salisbury's late equaliser.
