(Reuters) -Haiti qualified for the Women’s World Cup for the first time with a 2-1 win over Chile in the final qualifying playoffs on Wednesday, as Melchie Dumonay scored twice at North Harbour Stadium in Auckland.

Haiti will be in Group D at the July 20 to Aug. 20 World Cup in New Zealand and Australia, competing with England, Denmark and China.

Midfielder Dumonay opened the scoring at the stroke of half time with a powerful strike into the top corner as she finished off a brilliant team move and followed it up with a celebratory backflip.
