Written 1 month ago by Sport Midlands


Brazil beat Italy 1-0 at the Women’s World Cup in France last night thanks to a second half penalty from Marta.

The six time world player of the year has now scored a record 17 World Cup goals.

Italy still finished top of group C and will play a third placed team in the last 16 – likely to be Nigeria or China.

Brazil finished third in the group and now look set to face hosts France.

Four goals from Sam Kerr gave Australia a 4-1 win against Jamaica.

Australia go through as runners up – they’ll play Norway in the next round.

Tonight in Group D, England play Japan and Scotland take on Argentina.

Both games kick off at 8.
