Australia fall to Italy in dramatic Women's World Cup clash

A goal in the final minute of injury-time has seen Italy claim a dramatic 2-1 win over Australia at the Women's World Cup. 

Looking for her first World Cup goal, Matildas captain Sam Kerr twice got into dangerous positions in the first five minutes but couldn't get a meaningful shot away. 

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.

Surviving that scare, Australia went up the other end and won a penalty in the 20th minute after Sara Gama was guilty of bringing down Kerr in the box.

Having won the spot-kick, Kerr stepped up to take it and though having her initial effort saved to the left of goal, she was able to calmly slot home the rebound to give the Matildas the lead.
