Kyah Simon celebrates her goal in the second half against Brazil during the FIFA Women's 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.

And Australia is STOKED.
