WWC 2015: Brazil vs Australia

Brazil took on Australia yesterday in Moncton Stadium. As Brazil looked unable to break-through Australia's defence. Australia were the victors beating their opponents 1-0 and progressing to the quarter finals of the competition. 

In a tense match-up in Moncton between Brazil and Australia, it was Australia who came out on top, when Kyah Simon was able to get Australia's goal. The win also signalled Australia's first ever knockout game victory at the World Cup.

While the first half wasn't as lively as we've come to expect from the two sides there were one or two godd chances for both sides. Samantha Kerr came close for Australia, with a volley early on in the game. At the other end Lydia Williams was able to save Formiga's shot.

During the second half the tempo of the match increased. This led to Formiga coming close again for Brazil hitting the post. From the shot, Australian playmakers Lisa De Vanna and Van Egmond led a quick counter attack but again the shot at the end was deflected wide.

With just 10 minutes left, Katrina Gorry was able to snatch possession from Brazil and pick out a great pass to De Vanna whose shot was then parried. This time however, Simon was able to seize the opportunity and put Australia ahead.

The match ended 1-0 to Australia and sees the victors playing the winner of Japan vs Netherlands in quarter finals.
