On Sunday against Italy, though, they looked lost. Kerr put the Matildas ahead in the 22nd minute when she pounced on the rebound after seeing her penalty saved.
But Barbara Bonansea equalised shortly before the hour and provided the knockout blow deep into stoppage time:
Australia go into Thursday’s clash with Brazil on the back of three consecutive defeats after they lost their last two World Cup warm-up matches against the United States and the Netherlands.
That is hardly confidence-making form, and the South Americans will likely be smelling blood ahead of the Montpellier clash.
They looked good against Jamaica and could welcome back star player Marta to face the Matildas:

Australia entered the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup as heavy favorites to top Group C and cruise into the tournament’s knockout round — until they actually played a match. That’s when they suffered a stunning, 2-1 defeat to Italy, surrendering a tie-breaking goal with 4:40 elapsed in stoppage time, as The Guardian reported. Now the Matildas face a must-win game when they take on group-topping Brazil, who easily cruised past a Jamaica team that was simply happy to be playing its first-ever World Cup. But Head Coach Ante Milicic has at least two changes in mind to snap the Australians out of their doldrums in the match that will live stream from Montpellier.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the Australia vs. Brazil FIFA Women’s World Cup Group C match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Central European Time at the 32,900-seat Stade des Alpes in Montpellier, France, on Thursday, June 13. In Brazil, that start time will come at 1 p.m. Brasilia Time, while in Australia, the game kicks off at 2 a.m. Eastern Australia Standard Time on Friday, June 14, midnight Western.
In the United States, kickoff is scheduled for noon Eastern Daylight Time, 9 a.m. Pacific. In India, the live stream gets underway at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday evening.
“My head certainly wasn’t down after the first result,” Matildas midfielder Elise Kellond-Knight, playing in her third World Cup, told ESPN. “The tournament isn’t dictated in the first game.”

Brazil have their own problems, though. They are the 10th-ranked side in the world, but before the start of France 2019, they had lost nine games in a row—and 10 in 11 since their 2018 Copa America Femenina triumph last April.
On paper, however, Australia are the better side and should get a win on Thursday to get their campaign back on course.
They must get the Italy defeat out of their minds, though, or risk another poor result against a Brazil side with plenty of quality.
