With a 1-0 victory against Brazil this morning, the Matildas became the first senior Australian soccer team to win a game in the knockout stages of a World Cup.
Featuring star player Marta and ranked #7 to Australia's #10, Brazil were the favourites to win the game. But the heroic efforts of Matildas goalkeeper Lydia Williams and a stoic Australian defence kept the Brazilians from scoring.
After 80 minutes of play, the score remained at nil all. But then a deflected shot from Matildas captain Lisa De Vanna was slotted away by substitute Kyah Simon.
And Australia is STOKED.

Next, Australia will go up against either Japan or the Netherlands, ranked #4 and #12 respectively.
