VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - The Women’s World Cup quarterfinal match between the United States and China drew 5.7 million viewers on Fox, the network says.

The second-ranked U.S. women beat China 1-0 on Friday night to advance to a semifinal match against top-ranked Germany on Tuesday night.

The audience for the match was a soccer record for FOX, surpassing the 5 million viewers who watched the United States play Nigeria in the group stage, according to Nielsen’s fast national report.

The U.S. victory over China is the third-most watched women’s soccer match ever, trailing the U.S. victory over China in the 1999 World Cup final at the Rose Bowl (17,975,000) and the 2011 World Cup final between the United States and Japan (13,458,000).
