New Zealand beat Australia by one goal in final

New Zealand stunned holders and 11-time champions Australia to win the 2019 Netball World Cup in Liverpool. The final was tense throughout and came down to the dying seconds and just one goal, as the Kiwis prevailed 52-51. It was the Silver Ferns’ fifth world title but their first since 2003 as they finally ended the Diamonds’ dominance. England clinched bronze with a 58-42 victory over South Africa in their play-off match.

The Roses’ win was routine compared with the drama which followed between the Trans-Tasman rivals who were competing against each other for the sixth consecutive World Cup final. In a final that was evenly poised at half-time, New Zealand came out firing in the third quarter as they powered into a seven-goal lead with the 8,000-strong crowd behind them.
