There's the whistle. 2-0 victory for Canada - and much deserved, I might add - who secure their place in the final 16.
New Zealand have a free kick on the edge of the area and they are hoping to claw something back. But to no avail.
We have three minutes of added time to play now.
There was another substitution there as well as Leon came on for Prince.
Hassett comes off and Kete comes on for New Zealand.
Beckie comes off now to be replaced by Quinn.
GOAL! It's not pretty but it'll do. Michelle Prince finds the back of the net with a rebounding ball and Naylor isn't quick enough to get to it.
New Zealand still have time, and they need to create an ooportunity for themselves now.Try they do as White tries to make something of Percival's cross, but it's not enough.
Chapman comes on now to replace Riviere for Canada.
Some good passing from New Zealand as they make another attack, but the ball is played way too long by White.
New Zealand look to be on the cusp of making a counter attack. But it's immediately shut down and Canada are back on the ball.
Great save by Naylor as Michelle Prince heads the ball at close range.
A powerful shot by Prince but directed straight down the line at Naylor who keeps hold of it.
A good chance for Lawrence but is denied by a decent block by Stott for New Zealand.
Gregorious comes off now to make way for Anna Green.
In the meantime, Beckie whips the ball into the box hoping to find Prince - but there's too much on that.
having gone a goal down, you wonder why New Zealand don't try to take some more chances to see if they could equalise, but they are resolutely sticking in the Canada area.
Marta is the other, by the way.
Canada look alive now, Sinclair - who would be one of just two people to have played and scored in five World Cups if she manages it in this tournament - fires over the net.
GOAL! Michelle Prince picks out Fleming from between two new Zealand defenders, who slots it in the net. 1-0 to Canada.
We're back underway here in Grenoble and Beckie is straight in there with a shot, but it doesn't quite work out as it drifts off-target.
The whistle blows and we are still 0-0 here in Grenoble.
New Zealand have a free kick about 30 yards out just ahead of the whistle, that could have been the chance, but the ball is played forward but doesn't even touch a New Zealand player before it fizzes off. The finish just isn't there.
This is frustrating to watch, so goodness knows how Canada feel. It'd be great to see New Zealand take a few more chances here.
We've four minutes of additional time to play here and Canada do not look at all interested in easing off now.
73% possession for Canada in this first half. The New Zealand defence has been decent.
Hassett wins a corner for New Zealand, but they can't do anything with it. The ball is out of play.
A chance there for...Chance! Unfortunately it's not on target.
Canada go again... Prince heads the ball, but it's over the bar.
It's OK she's back on...
Olivia Chance looks to be injured now. Hopefully not too badly...
This is not at all dissimilar to last night's match between England and Argentina. The New Zealand strategy here is clearly to defend as best they can, but given the dominance of Canada in this game, it's hard to imagine they won't score sooner or later.
Lawrence decides to go for a shot rather than play the ball to Prince. It's no good as it falls wide of the goal.
Beckie is in a good position on the left wing to inflict pain on the New Zealand side now, but the Ferns flood into the area to surpress Canada once again.
Excellent defence by Stott who makes a great challenge on Prince, as she is ready to shoot.
New Zealand do well to close down another attack by Canada, they're just not doing a very good job of moving the ball beyond the midfield.
Canada's possession thus far is a pretty wapping 71%, and it shows.
That substitution has now been made, and Longo has come on, with Ria Percival shifting to right-back to accomodate the change.
Bott has come off before there is a chance to make the substitution, which looks like it will be Longo. New Zealand are very much in the line of fire as they block three attempts on goal by Canada before they subdue the threat.
CJ Bott is back on her feet but she looks pretty miserable with her hand now strapped up.
Bott takes the ball really hard against her hand and there's some concern she's broken a finger. It looks like she might have to come off which would be very unfortunate for New Zealand.
Beckie shoots again, this time from around 20 yards out, but it's just the wrong side of the post as it hits the net. Nonetheless, she could cause problems for New Zealand tonight.
Becky gets the ball in the box and heads it at the goal. There's not a lot of power on it and Naylor saves it easily.
New Zealand are doing well to get the ball out of their half but seem to encounter problems in the midfield, as they all too frequently lose possession.
Really good effort by New Zealand - a fantastic ball into the area, cleared away by Riviere. Good defending.
Canada - ranked 5th in the world - have started brightly, getting into the box but that effort was cleared away by Ria Percival.
And that's the whistle - we're off!
These guys met in the 2015 World Cup, when the score was 0-0. Let's hope for something a bit more interesting tonight.
It's time for the national anthems now here at the Stade des Alpes.
So far, as well as Netherlands, England and France are also through to the final 16 of the tournament.
(Yes I know about the playoffs, it was a joke)
The Canadian side can breathe a sigh of reliefe that so far, Drake does not appear to have openly pledged support for them.
Netherlands have won their game against Cameroon today, 3-1 securing their place in the final 16. Canada could do the same if they beat New Zealand, tonight. If New Zealand win, there's a good chance they'd end up going through to the next round as Canada still have to face Netherlands.
Canada won their first match against Cameroon 1-0, while New Zealand lost theirs against Netherlands 1-0.
The story so far, in case you need a little reminder...
Just one change across both teams tonight, and that's for Canada - Jayde Riviere steps in for Allysha Chapman.
