Stade de la Mosson


That's all for today, goodbye!
That win for Australia keeps them firmly in with a chance of qualifying for the next round as they are now level on points with Brazil and Italy and they will be hoping to carry some momentum into their final group game against Jamaica. Vadao's side will hope that they can improve on their performance today, as they know that they probably need to beat Italy to stand a chance of making it to the knockout rounds.
Australia come from behind to beat Brazil 3-2. Brazil had the better of the first half and took the lead in the 27th minute through a penalty when Marta confidently scored from the spot. Cristiane got the second when she headed Debinha's chipped cross into the back of the net. The momentum changed just before half-time though when Foord tapped the ball into an empty net before Logarzo got the equaliser in the second half with a brilliant long-range strike. An own goal from Monica finished off the turn around when she got ahead of Kerr and flicked the ball into her own net; there was a VAR check as Kerr had been offside but she didn't touch the ball and the decision went Australia's way.
K. Røstbakken
C. Foord
90' + 5' Final change of the game now by Milicic as he tries to run down the clock. Foord, the scorer of the first goal for Australia, comes off and Roestbakken is on in her place.
90' + 4' Australia are desperate to get the ball as far away from their own goal as possible now as they just play long passes upfield to nobody in the hopes of slowing down Brazil.
90' + 2' Andressa has just gone down in the box after getting tangled with Kellond-Knight. It looked like the defender was tugging her shirt, but the VAR check is quickly over and no penalty is given.
90' Into five minutes of added time at the end of the match after the lengthy VAR check on the last goal.
89' Foord is the latest player to try and take the ball into the corner with only a few minutes left of the game, but she just drifts offside before Logarzo can play the pass and Brazil get a free-kick.
87' Brazil are starting to show their frustration now as another foul is given against them. This time, Van Egmond goes under pressure from Ludmila and the substitute isn't happy as she thinks it's time wasting.
Yellow Card
87' Luana is the latest player to be booked after she catches Logarzo with a late challenge.
Andressa Alves
Yellow Card
85' Andressa receives a yellow card after catching Van Egmond in the face with a trailing arm.
84' Australia are already taking the ball to the corner as they try to and run down the clock to get the three points.
82' Andressa is back on the field now, but she doesn't look comfortable as she limps back to her position.
80' Andressa has gone down on the edge of Australia's box with cramp and the medical team are across to give her some treatment. It looks like she's going to be able to carry on, which is good for Brazil as they've used all their substitutions.
78' Brazil have struggled to get a foothold in the game after going behind and they've been struggling to string together enough passes to get into the final third to cause Australia problems.
76' It's a poor clearance from Tamires as she gives it straight to Raso on the right wing. She drifts inside before squaring the ball to Kerr on the edge of the box. The captain's shot is tame though and it's a comfortable save for Barbara.
Bia Zaneratto
75' Final roll of the dice from Vadao now as he brings off Cristiane, who scored Brazil's second goal, and replaces her with Beatriz.
74' Monica's own goal is only the second that Brazil have conceded in a Women's World Cup game after Daiane versus the US in 2011.
H. Raso
E. Gielnik
72' Milicic makes his first change of the game now as he brings on Raso in place of Gielnik.
70' Brazil are not happy with that decision and they're swarming around the referee to make their feelings known on the issue.
69' The goal is given! It's taken a long time to get to the decision, but the referee has now signalled that the goal will stand and Australia have the lead!
68' VAR are having a long look at the incident and the referee has been called across to have a look at the monitor. Despite Kerr not touching the ball, the check is to see if she was interfering with play at all.
Own Goal
66' MONICA SCORES AN OWN GOAL! Catly goes for the direct option as she plays a long ball over the top of Brazil's defence. She's looking for Kerr, who had drifted into an offside position, but Monica gets her head to the ball and flicks it past Barbara and into the back of the net. The linesman's flag went up due to Kerr's involvement and VAR are having a look at the incident.
64' Brazil go straight on the counter-attack following an Australia corner and they work the ball upfield really well. Ludmila drifts out to the left wing to get on the end of Cristiane's pass but her cross into the box is blocked by Kellond-Knight.
62' Brazil are just sitting back behind the ball at the minute as Australia keep the ball around the halfway line. They look wary of letting Australia push high up the field again as the game was starting to get stretched.
60' Australia give the ball away cheaply and Ludmila latches onto it. She takes her shot from the edge of the box but doesn't make clean contact with it as she drags it wide of the far post.
E. Gielnik
58' Gielnik saw Logarzo in a lot of space on the edge of the box and picks her out with a short pass.
C. Logarzo
58' AUSTRALIA ARE LEVEL! Logarzo takes a touch on the edge of the box before firing her shot low towards the goal. Kerr's run to the far post drags the defenders towards her which allows the shot drift through and into the back of the net. 2-2!
57' Australia fail to clear their lines from a corner and the ball is bouncing around in the box. Monica reaches it first and fires her shot on goal but it was blocked on the way through. There are shouts for handball, but the referee waves the claims away.
55' Kellond-Knight and Logarzo are working the ball well down the left wing and it looks like Australia's best way into the box at the minute. Logarzo is the one to put the cross into the penalty area this time, but Barbara is able to collect it.
53' Australia are keeping the ball well and are getting into some dangerous positions high up the field. Their final pass into the box hasn't always been great though and they're letting chances go to waste.
51' Australia have a free-kick in a good position on the left wing and Kellond-Knight swings the cross to the edge of the six-yard box. Kerr is inches away from getting on the end of it and Barbara just gets her fingertips to the ball to push it away.
49' Debinha pulls away from Kennedy on the left wing before cutting into the box to get a shot away. It's a powerful hit, but her effort is always curling away from goal as it flies wide of the far post.
47' Australia have made a bright start to the second half and have a corner. Yallop swings the ball into the box, but can't pick out a team-mate as Barbara comes off her line to collect it.
46' Brazil get us back underway for the second half!
46' Marta is the other player to make way with Ludmila coming on to replace her.
46' There's a double change from Vadao at the break. Formiga is the first player to make way and Luana comes on in her place.
Vadao will be happy with how his side attacked in the first half as they have been very clinical in front of goal, but they will need to improve defensively if they want to win the game. Their passing out from the back has been very sloppy and have played themselves into trouble too often due to Australia's high press. As for Milicic, he will be feeling better after Foord's goal, but will still be wanting more from his side. If they can find a way to get Kerr involved in the game more, then they stand a good chance of getting an equaliser.
Foord pulled a goal back for Australia to make the score 2-1 to Brazil at half-time. Australia thought they should've had a penalty before VAR ruled that there was a handball in the build-up before Brazil were awarded a spot-kick minutes later when Santos went down in the box. Marta stepped up to take it and calmly slotted it into the back of the net to give Brazil the lead. Cristiane then doubled their lead in the 38th minute when her headed effort nestled in the bottom corner. Then, just before half-time, Foord tapped the ball into the back of an empty net to get Australia back into the game.
C. Logarzo
45' + 1' Assist Chloe Logarzo
C. Foord
45' + 1' FOORD PULLS ONE BACK FOR AUSTRALIA! Yallop's cross into the box is nodded down by Logarzo and Foord is waiting in the middle to tap the ball into the back of an empty net as Barbara had drifted towards the cross. 2-1!
45' GOOD CHANCE FOR GIELNIK! Carpenter puts in a really good cross from the right wing and picks out Gielnik who is unmarked in the box. She takes a touch before firing her shot straight at Barbara.
44' Brazil have now scored 26 unanswered goals in the group stages at Women's World Cups, last conceding against France during the 2003 edition.
42' Brazil are still trying to build out from the back, but their passing is still letting them down often. Kathellen is the latest player to give the ball away on the edge of her own box and invite the pressure from Australia.
40' Australia look a little rattled after conceding the second goal and their passing isn't as quick as it was before to get them into the final third.
38' Debinha was left in a lot of space down the left wing and chipped her cross into the box on the turn to pick out Cristiane's run.
38' CRISTIANE DOUBLES THE LEAD! The cross into the box from Debinha was brilliant and Cristiane just got ahead of her defender in the middle of the box to reach the ball first and head it into the ground and over the line. 2-0 Brazil!
37' GOOD CHANCE FOR KERR! Foord pulls away from Santos on the left wing to put a cross into the box. Kerr gets ahead of her defender at the near post and directs her shot on target, but Barbara is across her line quickly to make the save.
35' Brazil don't clear their lines from a corner and Kellond-Knight is up from the back to pick up the loose ball. She puts a good cross back into the middle of the box, but Barbara comes off her line to collect it.
33' Australia have been struggling to get on the ball as often as they were before Brazil scored, but they are still causing their opponents a lot of problems with their high press.
31' Marta is the first player to score in five different editions of the Women's World Cup, netting in 2019, 2015, 2011, 2007 and 2003.
29' Brazil look a lot brighter since their goal and are passing the ball more comfortably before. Marta drifts out to the left wing and puts a good, low cross into the box, but Catley gets across to clear it for Australia.
Penalty Goal
27' MARTA SCORES FROM THE SPOT! She confidently steps up to take the penalty and sends the goalkeeper the wrong way as she curls her shot into the bottom corner. 1-0 Brazil!
26' PENALTY TO BRAZIL! Santos goes to ground under pressure from Kellond-Knight in the box. Australia are not happy with the decision as they feel that there was a handball by Santos but the referee very quickly points to the spot. VAR are having a look at this incident as well and they've given the penalty.
24' Brazil have been playing themselves into trouble quite often. Their passing in their own half has been sloppy and they've been gifting possession back to Australia and inviting the pressure from them.
22' No penalty! When Yallop won the ball back for her side in the build-up to the penalty incident, it bounced up and hit her on the arm so Brazil are awarded a free-kick instead.
20' Australia are asking for a penalty after Yallop goes to ground in the box by a challenge with Thaisa. The referee points for a goal kick but VAR are having a look at the incident.
18' Cristiane is not happy and she's making her feelings clear to the referee. She feels like she was caught by Van Egmond's elbow in an earlier challenge and she wants to know why she didn't get a free-kick for it.
16' Andressa cuts inside from the right wing and fires a good cross towards the far post. Debinha is running to get on the end of it but she just can't make contact with it before it bounces out of play.
Yellow Card
14' Formiga receives the first yellow card of the game after a clumsy challenge on Van Egmond. That's her second booking of the tournament which means she will miss Brazil's next match.
12' Santos wins the ball back from Logarzo and quickly tries to slot it through to Cristiane in the middle. The forward had just drifted offside though so she couldn't make the run to get on the end of it.
10' At the minute, Australia are trying to make their way forward down the right wing through Gielnik and Carpenter. They're putting some good crosses into the box but haven't been able to pick out a team-mate in the middle just yet.
8' Kellond-Knight has got forward from left-back and she picks up the ball on the edge of the box. She takes a touch before trying to curl her effort towards the top corner, but her effort flies over the crossbar.
6' Australia have made a bright start to the game and are closing down Brazil high up the field which is causing their opponents some problems at the minute.
4' Brazil's passing has been quite sloppy in the opening minutes of the game with a lot of the players knocking the ball straight out of play needlessly.
2' Brazil work the ball quickly upfield down the left wing and Tamires gets away from Kellond-Knight to get her cross into the box. She squares it to the near post, but it's Williams is able to collect it under no pressure.
1' Kerr gets the game underway for Australia!
The teams are out on the field now, and kick off is just moments away!
Brazil have now won each of their last 10 group stage games at the World Cup, keeping a clean sheet in each one. They have found the back of the net 24 times across those 10 games.
Vadao makes only one change to the side that beat Jamaica last time out as star player, and top-scorer for Brazil at all Women's World Cups, Marta is available once again after sitting out the last game with an injury. She replaces Beatriz, who starts on the bench.
Ante Milicic makes just two changes to the side that lost to Italy as he brings Kellond-Knight and Gielnik into the starting line-up. Raso drops down to the bench, while Clare Polkinghorne is unavailable today due to a muscle injury. Mary Fowler is not included in the squad as she is still suffering from a hamstring injury.
BRAZIL SUBS: Poliana, Luana, Aline, Andressinha, Beatriz, Ludmila, Tayla, Camila, Geyse, Raquel, Daiane, Leticia.
BRAZIL STARTING XI (4-4-1-1): Barbara; Leticia Santos, Kathellen, Monica, Tamires; Debinha, Formiga, Thaisa, Andresaa Alves; Marta; Cristiane.
AUSTRALIA SUBS: Karly Roestbakken, Hayley Raso, Teagan Micah, Mackenzie Arnold, Katrina Gorry, Gema Simon, Aivi Luik, Teigen Allen, Amy Harrison, Lisa De Vanna.
AUSTRALIA STARTING XI (4-3-3): Lydia Williams; Ellie Carpenter, Alanna Kennedy, Stephanie Catley, Elise Kellond-Knight; Tameka Yallop, Emily van Egmond, Chloe Logarzo; Emily Gielnik, Sam Kerr, Caitlin Foord.
This is a game that Australia can't afford to lose if they want to be in with the chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds after they suffered a last-minute defeat to Italy in their opening match of the tournament. They face tough opponents in Brazil though, who cruised to a 3-0 victory over Jamaica in their first game and put themselves in a good position to reach the next round of the World Cup.
