Cristiane hits treble as Brazil cruise to victory Soccer

Marta to miss Brazil's World Cup opener against Jamaica

Barbara Bonansea's stoppage-time victor caused a big Women's World Cup upset on Sunday as Italy beat Australia 2-1 in Group C, while Cristiane scored a hat-trick for Brazil to spoil Jamaica's Women's World Cup debut.

After being brought down by Italy's Sara Gama, the NWSL and W-League top goal scorer slotted home after her penalty was initially saved by Laura Giulani.

But Italy continued to push on and grabbed an equaliser in the 56th minute through Bonansea again.

Cristiane was not the only Brazil star to set a record, though, as her team-mate Formiga, at the age of 41 years and 98 days, became the oldest player to appear in the women's finals, and the first to feature in all seven editions of the tournament.

The 34-year-old completed her hat-trick in the 64th minute, expertly striking a free-kick from just outside the area off the crossbar and into the net for her 92nd worldwide goal.

Ex-NFL, Miami Hurricanes star Kellen Winslow Jr. convicted of rape
In addition to the aforementioned charges, Winslow was cited for exposing himself to two different women over the past year. The judge told jurors being under oath means telling the whole truth and that they should follow the law how it is written.

Brazil, who are aiming to surpass their best-ever finish in 2007 when they were beaten by Germany in the title clash, take on Australia in Montpellier in their next Group C contest on Thursday.

While Jamaica's pace sometimes troubled the Brazilian defence, Brazil could have won by more.

Jamaican supporters wait for the start of the Women's World Cup Group C football match between Brazil and Jamaica in Grenoble, France, Sunday, June 9, 2019.

But Australia, quarter-finalists at the last three World Cups, lost control in the second half, Bonansea slotting in to restore parity.
