There is the 2-0 for Italy! Aurora Galli is just in the field and again shows its value as a substitute. With a bang of distance she finds the far corner. Aurora Galli, a surprise first-half substitute for Cristiana Girelli, bags another long-range goal on a sweet right-footed strike from outside the box. It was perfectly placed into the bottom corner, with China’s keeper unable to even get a hand on the low but powerful strike. After how China closed the first half, a 2-0 lead is exactly what Italy needed
Forward Valentina Giacinti gave Italy an early lead when she turned in the loose ball from close range after Peng Shimeng parried Elisa Bartoli's effort. China enjoyed a resurgence before the interval but Italy sealed victory through Aurora Galli after half-time.
Galli, who replaced Cristiana Girelli in the first half, found the bottom corner from outside the area.
Italy have made it to the last eight of the women's World Cup only once, in the inaugural edition in 1991 when the group phase directly led to the quarter-finals.
China, the 1999 runners-up, enjoyed a good spell before the break but failed to make it count as Italy keeper Laura Giuliani made some good saves.
Giugliano goes down howling in pain after losing the ball to a fair but sturdy slide tackle and spends the next few minutes lying on the floor, almost as if - and I'm not suggesting she is, of course - trying to waste some time. China don't care and play on but another aimless cross hurled into the area comes to nothing.
A very much deserved win. They controlled the game very well in the first half. In the second half they defended well as China grew into the game. China lacked the sort of play to unlock the defence.
Job done for Italy! China had chances but couldn't take them and were beaten by the better team. Italy could really do something special in this World Cup.
Italy will play the Netherlands or Japan in the last eight on Saturday in Valenciennes.
