Italy women earn last gasp win over Australia

Italy women earn last gasp win over Australia”

Nonetheless, Italy kept their composure and managed to restore parity four minutes before the hour-mark, when Bonansea caught the Aussie's backline red-handed, and with a superb solo effort managed to net Italy's first World Cup goal in 20 years. "We shook everything off and we started playing".

Italy came from behind to do the unthinkable and seal their World Cup return with a famous 2-1 over one of the tournament favourites Australia, in Valenciennes.

"We need to be a little bit more courageous and composed on the ball".

Bonansea, however, equalized 11 minutes into the second half after a defensive blunder on the edge of the box. Australia were strong but we didn't do ourselves justice.

Barbara Bonansea thought she had opened the scoring for Italy in the eighth minute only for the offside flag to be raised and VAR eventually confirming the striker mistimed her run by the narrowest of margins. Australia faces Brazil at noon Thursday in Montpellier, France.

That shocked Australia into action.

Her curling cross was bound for Kerr, who found herself wrapped in a bear hug from Italy skipper Sara Gama with the referee pointing to the penalty spot in the 22nd minute. Italy equalised shortly after half-time after a costly mistake from Clare Polkinghorne.

The centre back's heavy touch was scooped by Bonansea, who wrong-footed Alanna Kennedy, before smashing a right-footed strike between Emily van Egmond and Walker into the bottom right corner of the net.
