The Netherlands and Italy will go into the second leg of their FIFA Women's World Cup play-off final in Verona on Thursday level after a draw in The Hague.

Melania Gabbiadini got Italy an early away goal. But 18-year-old Vivianne Miedema delighted a Dutch women's record crowd of 13,100 with her competition-leading 14th goal of qualifying after the break, and said: "It's a pity they scored an away goal so easily and we did not score more. If we play like we can, we'll beat them."
