Coming back into the half the game really needed a goal and in the 54th minute it found one for Brazil. The ball found it’s way at the 18 and Cristiane juggled it several times before getting it a smidgen forward for Rosanna who touched it once and fired a half volley into the right side of the net. Gol! Very nice work, but of course Brazil would have to defend mightily to keep the lead and that is what they did.
Australia’s biggest chance came @ 86’ Lisa De Vanna had a breakaway and over hit it so badly. She missed a huge opportunity. From there Brazil was brilliant at killing off time.
Final score: 1-0.
