Aussies stun Brazil at Women’s WC


Chances were at a premium in a physical battle in a wet Moncton, but Australia's strong defending and aggressive counter-attacking eventually paid dividends. Samantha Kerr went close for the Australians while Formiga headed onto the post for Brazil. The winner came when Lisa de Vanne ran down the right and fired in a low shot which Brazil keeper Luciana spilled, allowing Simon to slot home.The goal was the first conceded by the Brazilians at this year's tournament.

Australia join two-time champions Germany - 4-1 winners over Sweden on Saturday - and China, who beat Cameroon 1-0, in the last eight. – The Independent
