Barbara Bonansea: Italy striker sinks Matildas with late-gasp victor

Matildas WWC

Earlier in the game, Kerr pulled off her best Tim Cahill impression after scoring the opening goal of Australia's clash against Italy at the Women's World Cup - leaving her all the more devastated to see it rendered pointless by the end of the game. When we played our football we looked decent, but it was only in patches. "Maybe that calmed us down a bit so we were able to play the way we know how".

The Italians grabbed the equalizer in the 56th minute when a mistake on Australia's backline delivered Bonansea with clear space down the left wing.

Australia were strong but we didn't do ourselves justice.

Australian defender Clare Polkinghorne attempted to bring in a pass during the sequence, but took a bad touch. However, Bonansea's performance may realign the expectations for how far this Italian group can go in the tournament. Her loose touch gifted Bonansea possession in a risky area.

Substitute Daniela Sabatino put the ball in the net but again, but she was caught by the offside flag.

Christiane recorded her next two goals in 14 minutes during the second half, including a breathtaking free kick in the 64th minute to clinch a solid opener for the Brazilians. Valentina Bergamaschi and Alia Guagni were the fullbacks, while Manuela Giugliano, Valentina Cernoia and Aurora Galli comprised the midfield trio.

Juventus' Bonansea pounced on a awful first touch from Clare Polkinghorne to race through and level for the Italians 11 minutes after the break after hotshot striker Sam Kerr had rammed home the opener for the Matildas on the rebound from her own 22nd-minute penalty.

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