China won their first point and scored their first goal in Olympic Games and World Cup as they drew with Olympian debutant New Zealand 1-1 in their Group C match of the men's soccer tournament here on Thursday.

Subsititute forward Dong Fangzhuo, who plays for Manchester United, scored a last-gasp goal with a headar with two minutes before the final whistle.

China scored none in their only World Cup appearance in 2002 and previous Olympics experience in the 1988 Seoul Games, where they conceded a total of five goals.

New Zealand broke the deadlock in the 53rd minute, when midfielder Craig Henderson chested the ball down near the Chinese box and flicked it to a running Jeremy Brockie, who duly slammed it into the back of the net.
