It was a subdued first half in Moncton, but Alen Stajcic’s side were the ones who created the first real opportunity to open the scoring when Samantha Kerr had received the ball at the back post, following an Emily Van Egmond corner, but her volley went into the side-netting.

Vadao’s side’s best chance of the half fell to Formiga but the forwards vicious curling shot was tipped over by Lydia Williams.

Goalkeeper Williams was again called into action as she turned a rasping drive, by Brazilian captain Marta, behind to keep the scores level.

Australian midfielder Van Egmond then teed up Lisa De Vanna but the Aussie captain’s effort was deflected behind.

But with just 10 minutes remaining, a De Vanna shot was parried by Luciana and Kyah Simon pounced to coolly slot home the winner following a defence splitting pass by substitute Katrina Gorry.
