The Netherlands scored at the death to draw away to the Czech Republic in FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifying Group C.

The Netherlands rescued a point with a stoppage-time equaliser in the Czech Republic, where the game had been put back a day due to heavy snowfall.

West Ham’s Katarina Svitkova beat Sari van Veenendaal from 30 yards, Daniëlle van de Donk levelled after the break but Simona Necidová soon restored the hosts’ lead.

Three minutes into added time, Stefanie van der Gragt made it 2-2, to see the Dutch five points clear of second-placed Iceland from two games more, while the Czech Republic have five points from four games.
