Vivianne Miedema was head over heels after becoming Holland's all-time record goalscorer in the 3-1 win over Cameroon which secured a place in the last 16 of the Women's World Cup.

Arsenal striker Miedema, who is only 22, broke the deadlock four minutes before half-time with a diving header, only for Cameroon to swiftly equalise through Gabrielle Onguene.

The European champions, though, stepped things up following the restart and were in front again when Dominique Bloodworth tapped home from close range in the 48th minute.

With five minutes remaining, Miedema sealed victory with her 60th international goal after driving into the penalty area, moving her clear of the mark set by Manon Melis.

"It will be celebrated not in a big way, but it will be talked about. It is something special, something I'm only going to experience once and it's a special experience for me," Miedema said afterwards, quoted on the FIFA website.

"It's a World Cup - you score a goal, so I think you can cheer and be a little crazy about it.

"It's a special moment and I made a deal with my brother to make a roll on the pitch. Maybe that won't happen again next time. No more gymnastics!"

Holland, who left it late to beat New Zealand in their first match, complete their Group A schedule against Canada in Reims.

"In a couple of stages we played better than the previous game, but we struggled as well," Holland coach Sarina Wiegman told a press conference.

"We scored before half-time and you want to build on that, but suddenly it's 1-1. Thankfully we scored again after half-time and that was nice."

Wiegman will not get ahead of herself trying to work out who Holland could face for a place in the quarter-finals.

"We are now qualified for the next round. But who is better as an opponent (next)? I always think it's dangerous to do the maths. That is taking shape right now," she said. "Let's just play the Canada game first."

Cameroon have lost both their matches, with hopes of further progress slim.

Coach Alain Djeumfa felt his side were always going to be up against it given the mass support for the Oranje in the Stade du Hainaut.

"Valenciennes is very close to Holland, so we were disadvantaged in this respect. We weren't able to play an hour away from Holland and it not affect our team on a psychological level," he said.

"In terms of the game, I think we did what we could. I am satisfied. We have one game left and we're going to bet on doing our best in this game."
