With 25 minutes gone, the South Africans stunned Spain with a top-drawer finish from Thembi Kgatlana, who has now netted Banyana's first-ever World Cup goal.

13 in the world, finished last in its group four years ago in Canada, the country's only other appearance in the tournament.

The Atletico Madrid striker scored her first penalty in the 69th minute after South Africa captain Janine Van Wyk was called for a hand ball, and beat goalkeeper Andile Dlamini again in the 82nd minute. She scored another in the 83rd minute after Nothando Vilakazi committed a foul in the penalty area and found herself sent off after the video referee adjudged that she was deserving of a second yellow card.

Virginia Torrecilla had a goal disallowed for offside as Spain stepped up the pressure, and it made its mark when Vilakazi recklessly dived in on Garcia, with Hermoso stepping up to complete the comeback.

It was the second Group B match of the day.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time. Lopez suffered non-life threatening injuries when he was struck in the leg, apparently by the same bullet that hit Ortiz.

Germany will take on China before this Group B game.

Germany won their last title in 2007 and next face Spain in Group B on Thursday, while China, runners-up to the United States in 1999, play South Africa on Friday.

The sides both struck the woodwork before the deadlock was broken, Yang Li hitting the upright when presented with a fine opportunity to score after opponent Carolin Simon had rattled the bar in a tense clash.

A 17-minute first-half blitz guaranteed a strong start to the tournament for Norway, with Guro Reiten, Lisa-Marie Utland and an own-goal from Osinachi Ohale downing Nigeria.

Nigeria were hurt when defender Faith Michael was stretchered off after a collision with her keeper early in the second half.
