Italy win congested group
 Women's Football World Cup News - 21 Jun 2019
 
Group C ended in dramatic fashion and on a very tight note as all of the top three teams in the group finished level on points with each other.
 
Italy had gone into their match with Brazil in impressive form, having won both opening games, whilst their opponents needed to avoid defeat in order to be sure of progressing.
 
Italy looked bright during the first half, with Cristiana Girelli having a goal disallowed for offside, but began to look tired after the break whilst Brazil pushed forward in search of the goal which would take them through. The introduction of Beatrix as a second half substitute gave Brazil greater firepower going forward and she went very close to scoring, but with sixteen minutes remaining, Debinha was bodychecked in the area by Elena Linari and a penalty was awarded. This gave Marta the chance to slot home from the spot to give Brazil a 1-0 win and see her become the World Cup's highest goalscorer of all time.
 
Australia meanwhile defeated Jamaica 4-1 to take second place, and came close to toppling Italy as group winners at one stage.
 
It was the Matildas' star striker Sam Kerr who stole the show as she netted all four goals for her side, taking her to the top of the scoring charts alongside Alex Morgan in the process.
 
Kerr produced emphatic finishes from an Emily Gielnik cross and Katrina Gorry through ball to put Austraila two ahead at the interval, but four minutes into the second half, the Reggae Girlz scored their first goal of the tournament as Khadija Shaw's pass picked out Havana Solaun who rounded the keeper before scoring.
 
Jamaica pressed for an equaliser with Shaw going close but with twenty minutes remaining, Kerr took advantage of a defensive error to complete her hat-trick and she went on to add a fourth after Jamaica goalkeeper Nicole McClure missed her kick.
