Women's World Cup: A video of an injured Norwegian player being thrown to the sidelines goes viral.

The Norwegian women's team's effective manner of transporting an injured player after their shocking 1-0 loss to New Zealand has gone viral.

The ninth Women's World Cup began today in Australia and New Zealand.

Despite missing captain Sam Kerr with a calf injury, the former defeated Republic of Ireland 1-0 in Group B.

The Perth native posted on Instagram this morning that she had injured herself in training yesterday and will miss The Matildas' next group game against Nigeria next Thursday.

New Zealand won their first World Cup match before the Stadium Australia match.

The Football Ferns defeated Hege Riise's Norway 1-0 with 31-year-old Hannah Wilkinson's 48th-minute goal.

Thea Bjelde fell near the right touchline after a 90th-minute penalty miss. The 23-year-old appeared to have cramping or leg injuries after eight tackles.

Bjelde was immediately taken off the pitch by Manchester United's Vilde Bøe Risa and Norwegian winger Caroline Graham Hansen and placed on the bench.
