Advance Australia into the last eight
 Women's Football News 22 Jun 2015
Brazil 0 Australia 1 (Simon 80)
Australia are through to the World Cup quarter finals after a Kyah Simon goal ten minutes from time gave them a superb victory over Brazil in Moncton. 
The Matildas had never won a knockout game in the history of the tournament but are now setting their sights on a clash with either Japan or Holland in the last eight.
The first half was very tightly contested with few chances for either team at either end. A corner by Emily Van Egmond was fired into the side netting at the far post by Samantha Kerr whilst at the other end, Lydia Williams palmed a Formiga shot over the bar but these were rare opportunities in an otherwise forgettable half.
Cristiane did well to take on two defenders on the left with Tamires running on to the ball and striking a left foot shot just past the post.
Another strong run by Cristiane at the Australian defence saw her set up a chance for Marta on the edge of the area but the striker's shot was saved at the near post by Williams.
The resulting corner was floated across goal by Andressa for an unmarked Formiga at the far post but her header came back off the post and Australia were able to scramble the ball away.
The Matildas then counter attacked with the speedy Lisa De Vanna running at the Brazil defence, carrying the ball virtually 50 yards before setting up Van Egmond whose shot was deflected narrowly wide.
Australia were growing into the game as a force and were rewarded with ten minutes remaining. After Katrina Gorry had done well to battle through two or three tackles in midfield, she then produced a superb defence splitting pass to release De Vanna on goal and although her shot was parried by Luciana, Simon followed up to slot home the rebound and put her side in front.
It was the first goal that Brazil had conceded in the competition and they could only muster up one dangerous opportunity as they chased an equaliser, a long free kick being pumped into the area for Andressa whose header was comfortably saved by Williams. 
Brazil: Luciana, Fabiana, Monica, Rafaelle, Andressa, Tamires (sub Raquel Fernandes 83mins), Formiga, Thaisa (sub Beatriz 83mins), Andressa Alves, Marta, Cristiane.

Australia: Lydia Williams, Alanna Kennedy, Steph Catley, Tameka Butt (sub Katrina Gorry 72mins), Laura Alleway, Elise Kellond-Knight, Samantha Kerr, Michelle Heyman (sub Kyah Simon 64mins), Caitlin Foord, Emily Van Egmond, Lisa De Vanna.

Player of the match: Elise Kellond-Knight.
