Brazil scores late to beat New Zealand 1-0
Cristiane scored an 86th-mintute goal Saturday to give Brazil a 1-0 win over New Zealand in Olympic women's soccer.
Cristiane sent a high shot that just barely made it into the net as the New Zealand defense scrambled to stop it.
The win leaves Brazil with six points from two matches in Group E. New Zealand has zero points after its second consecutive 1-0 loss.
Brazil is trying to win its first major trophy in women's soccer.
