Late drama as Italy stun Australia at Women's World Cup

Matildas jersey

The Matildas face a World Cup reckoning against old nemesis Brazil after suffering a shock 2-1 loss to Italy.

As the final whistle edged closer, Bonansea got past Australian captain Sam Kerr with a header that caught goalkeeper Lydia Williams off guard in the fifth minute of stoppage time to seal the win for Italy.

Cristiane scored all three goals for Brazil as they spoiled Jamaica's Women's World Cup debut.

The Aussies dominated most of the play controlling 64 per cent of the possession and getting away 16 shots to Italy's 6.

Bonansea levelled the score in the 56th minute, pouncing on a major mistake by Clare Polkinghorne at the back to slot Italy's first home in the second half. Le Azzurre, however, were far more efficient with the chances they created as they shockingly sit amongst the top half of Group C after Matchday 1.

Daniel James is a Welsh worldwide and is in the national team's squad for the upcoming 2020 Euro qualifiers. He will complete his move next week when the worldwide transfer window opens.

Juventus' Bonansea popped up at the back post to head home the victor having already levelled for the dogged Italians, putting the Azzurre second in Group C, level on three points with Brazil after a Cristiane hat-trick inspired them to a 3-0 thumping of Jamaica in Grenoble.

Order was restored in Group C just hours after Italy's upset of Australia.

After an eight-year wait between World Cup goals, Brazil's veteran forward Christiane recorded a hat trick to provide the Canarinhas with all the firepower necessary. She also scored in the 15th and 50th minutes for the Brazilians, who were playing without star Marta who was ruled out with a thigh injury.

England open their World Cup campaign with a Group D derby against Scotland in the day's late game.

Australia has lost their opening match of the soccer World Cup.
