Australia fight back to beat Brazil 3-2

Brazil Australia Women's World Cup

"We were so disappointed after the first game".

Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe joined the Fox Sports crew during World Cup coverage on Thursday and discussed their 13-0 win over Thailand, which has created quite the amount of buzz, but not just because of the scoreline. Rapinoe touched on that, saying, "I feel like we were pent up", while also adding that they respect every opponent. "It was really nice for us to have the confidence in ourselves to be able to do that".

Marta scored a penalty in the first half as Brazil built a 2-0 lead.

Australia came from two goals down to stun Brazil 3-2 in their Women's World Cup clash in Montpellier.

Cristiane, who netted a hat-trick in the first game against Jamaica, then doubled the lead following a lovely flowing move that, like the first goal, came against the run of play with Australia much the better side. However, Monica may not have knocked the ball at all if she knew Kerr couldn't be involved in the play.

38' GOAL! It's Cristiane again as she receives the ball in the box from Debinha's cross at heads it at the back of the net.

Since its introduction to soccer, VAR (video assistant referee) has its fans and detractors.

If Christensen is convicted, there will then be a death-penalty phase where jurors would decide if Christensen should be executed. She was studying photosynthesis and crop production at the university two months before she was reported missing on June 9, 2017.

That's a tough one, isn't it?

On 58 minutes, Logarzo fizzed the ball across goal and Barbara, distracted by the run of Kerr, somehow lost track of the shot and let it in at her back post. The players deserve all the rewards they were given tonight. Credit to Monica though for her effort, because all she was trying to do was get the ball out of danger.

"There was a lot of critics talking about us but we're back so suck on that one!"

69' GOAL! The goal stands, and that goes on the scoresheet as an own goal by Monica.

She became the first player to score at five different FIFA World Cups as she put Brazil ahead from the penalty kick spot with a record-extending 16th World Cup goal. She also extended her own World Cup record to 16 career goals, but she taken off at half time, which seems like it could be related to her injury, though pending confirmation.

The Matildas were just the second team to come from two goals down to win a World Cup match, after Sweden's defeat of Germany in 1995. The Chinese did enough on Thursday with a 1-0 win. But were they given an unfair advantage by the ever-contentious VAR system, after the third goal was allowed despite Kerr's obvious offside?
