Women's World Cup 2019: Who is in knockout round? Scenarios for Australia-Jamaica, Brazil-Italy (6/18/19)

Women's World Cup 2019: Who is in knockout round? Scenarios for Australia-Jamaica, Brazil-Italy (6/18/19)

Brazil were eventually rewarded when they were awarded a penalty after Debinha was brought down by Elena Linari and Marta coolly converted the spot kick, wrong-footing Giuliani.

During her club career, Marta has had spells Brazil and America, as well as most notably in Sweden, where she earned citizenship there in 2017.

Half-time substitute Solaun reduced the arrears as she netted Jamaica's first women's World Cup goal after collecting a ideal through ball from Khadija Shaw in the 49th minute.

For all her individual accolades, however, the Brazil captain has never won the World Cup, her best being a runners-up spot in 2007.

But Kerr became the first Australian to score a hat trick in a senior World Cup with a clinical finish after a defensive blunder by the Jamaicans.

Michelle Obama takes on James Corden in a celebrity-packed dodgeball game
In the video above, it seems like Obama and Corden are about to do another round of Carpool Karaoke as she has done in the past. As a former first lady , it's no surprise that Michelle Obama wasn't about to let James Corden get away with dissing America.

Marta's 17th finish puts even more space between her and Birgit Prinz and Abby Wambach on the women's side, as both scored 14 goals during their global careers.

Marta, a six-time FIFA Player of the Year and widely regarded as the greatest female to have played the game, celebrated by kissing her boot.

Italy vs. Brazil, 3 p.m. ET on FOX, fuboTV: Italy have already qualified for the knockout round and will clinch the Group C title with a win or draw.

Despite their loss on Tuesday, Italy tops the group thanks to their +5 goal differential with Australia and Brazil both at +3.

As a result, Brazil's knockout round opponent has yet to be decided while Australia will face Norway and Italy will face the third-place team from Group A or B.
