Matildas fightback stuns Brazil
 Women's Football World Cup News - 14 Jun 2019
 
Australia staged a stunning fightback from two goals down to beat Brazil 3-2 in a dramatic match in Montpellier.
 
Fresh from their opening victory over Jamaica, Brazil swept into the lead just before the half hour when Elise Kellond-Knight was adjudged to have pulled back Leticia Santos in the area and Marta slotted home from the spot.
 
Ten minutes later, Cristiane put Brazil two ahead with a firm header and it looked as though they were on their way towards a place in the last sixteen, with Australia's future in the tournament in jeopardy.
 
However in first half injury time, Australia grabbed themselves a lifeline through an opportunist finish by Caitlin Foord from close range to reduce the arrears.
 
The goal cleared buoyed the Matildas and they were back on level terms as Chloe Logarzo played the ball into the area and Brazilian goalkeeper Barbara was distracted by the run of Sam Kerr and the ball continued on its way into the net.
 
The comeback was completed as a long ball forward was glanced past her own keeper by Monica and although the goal was initially ruled out for offside against Kerr, VAR intervened to rule that the goal should stand.
 
There was distinctly less drama on show at the Parc des Princes where China rekindled their hopes of going through with a 1-0 win against South Africa, which takes them level on points with Spain.
 
The only goal of the game came five minutes before half time when Li Ying volleyed in a cross from Zhang Rui. China almost made it two just afterwards from a free kick, Wang Shanshan's header hitting the underside of the bar and bouncing on the line before it was cleared.
 
China dominated possession during a largely uneventful second half whilst South Africa rarely looked like threatening their lead at any stage.
