Reggae Girlz lose 3-0 to Brazil in World Cup debut

Reggae Girlz lose 3-0 to Brazil in World Cup debut

Earlier in the day, Barbara Bonansea ensured Italy a dramatic return to the World Cup after a 20-year absence with a stoppage-time victor that gave her team a last-gasp win over tournament dark horses Australia.

Cristiane tucked in her second goal from a tight angle following the restart as Andressa provided the assist again, before the 34-year-old completed her hat-trick with a powerful free-kick that rattled the underside of the crossbar before crossing the line in the 64th minute.

Brazil had won all seven of their previous Women's World Cup opening games and only the brilliance of Jamaica's goalkeeper Sydney Schneider prevented the scoreline from being even more emphatic. She also scored in the 15th and 50th minutes for the Brazilians, who were playing without star Marta.

Shaw was left disappointed with her own performance and said she is looking to do more in the team's next assignment.

For once Schneider was caught out early in the second half, unable to reach a low cross from Andressa, who steered the ball in from the right and Cristiane slid in to finish. "What can I say, it's incredible, and scoring with my head as well, which never happens with me", said Bonansea, who had scored Italy's first two World Cup goals in two decades.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Still Releasing In Multiple Parts
In one scenario, Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch as separate games focusing on different arcs of the RPG's story. It's also the furthest point along in the game that we definitely can pinpoint which is depicted in the trailer.


Brazil stopped a nine-game losing streak that began with a 4-1 defeat to the US last August 2.

Without Marta, Brazil's Cristiane delivered with a hat trick.

The Women's World Cup is running now, with Group C and Group D beginning play on Sunday.

Jamaica made history by qualifying for this tournament and will fly the flag as the first ever side from the Caribbean to show up in the finals with the whole country set to get behind their side.
