Norway joined Germany in the 2019 World Cup quarterfinals after beating Sam Kerr and Australia in penalty kicks on Saturday. "I was just focusing and picking a side when they put the ball down".

The Matildas captain confidently stepped up to take Australia's first effort but spooned it high and wide.

Hjelmseth saved two penalties in her last shootout - the semifinal of the 2013 European Championship.

"What can you do?" she said. The girls have already gotten around me.

Court filings from January initially estimated epic holders had $70 million in money balances and $190 million in cryptocurrency. Ernst & Young also updated the amount owed to QuadrigaCX users, to $74.1 million in cash and $140.5 million in cryptocurrency.

With the win, Norway will take on the victor of England and Cameroon in the quarterfinals, while it is heartbreak for Australia.

Ante Milicic returned to the eleven that dismantled Brazil for Australia's knockout World Cup clash with Norway, making four changes to his Matildas team. Kerr had a goal ruled out in the second half after offside was called. Australia also had two penalties denied on video review in normal time.

Norway had a number of chances to score in extra time but was repeatedly denied by Australia goalkeeper Lydia Williams. At the cup, the team scored nine goals, five of which came from Kerr, but the team was wasteful when it couldn't afford to be. Kerr is tied with USWNT's Alex Morgan for the lead for the Golden Boot and will work to help Australia potentially reach a fourth consecutive quarterfinal. "Doesn't really feel like we're out if that makes sense".
