This morning, Australia beat Brazil 3-1, in a friendly match on FIFA data. Polkenhorn, Fuller and Egmund scored the goals of the confrontation for the Australians and Adriana for the Brazilians.
Despite the balance throughout the match, the Australian team proved more effective in its attacks and managed to break the defense of Pia Sundhag’s team.
This was the third opportunity Brazil had to take on the field after playing at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. In September, Brazil played two preparatory matches against Argentina, winning two wins, 3-1 and 4-1.
With the 2023 World Cup in focus, Australia, along with New Zealand, is preparing to host a version of the tournament for the first time.
Brazil will continue to have another friendly match against the Australians on Tuesday, 26, at 6:05 am (GMT), at Companque Stadium, which is the same venue as today’s match.
The match started with the two teams studying the game and trying to find the best option to play.
Eight minutes later, Brazil passed in dismay. Yallop took the lead alone, but Leticia managed to defend. Then, there was an accidental shock, and the number 13 shirt hit the knee in the face of the Brazilian goalkeeper. The match was stopped to receive medical attention before the match started normally.
Australia opened the score
Despite the contested match, the Australians managed to take the lead. At the end of the first stage, after a free kick, Sam Kerr fixed to Polkenhorn, who just pushed towards the goal.
The busiest game
In the second half, both teams were more offensive. Australia even extended the score with a header from Fowler. However, in the next step, Brazil was able to cut back the Australian advantage in a singles match by Adriana.
The Australian team was able to take advantage of the opportunities presented to them and expand their supremacy. At the end of the match, Catley found van Egmond empty at the entrance to the area, which sent him to the back of the Brazilian net. 3 to 1 for Australia.
