Cameroon responded almost immediately as winger Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene timed her run perfectly to latch on to a long ball before beating goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal for an easy finish.

Netherlands, who edged New Zealand in their opening match, were back on the front foot in the second half after a cleverly worked free kick allowed center back Dominique Bloodworth to score her first international goal from close range.

Cameroon substitute Henriette Akaba came close to an equalizer in the closing stages before Miedema scored her second to put the result beyond doubt.

It was Miedema's 60th goal for the Netherlands as she surged past former striker Manon Melis to become their all-time top scorer.
