Marta makes World Cup history with record 17th goal

The Matildas could play any number of opponent in the round of 16... or not at all

The Matildas could play any number of opponent in the round of 16... or not at all

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.

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.

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.
