Raso fires Australia into World Cup knockouts as Canada blitzed 4-0

Australia’s Hayley Raso scored two goals in the first half, and Mary Fowler added another goal in the second half as Australia defeated Canada 4-0 in the Women’s World Cup. This victory secured Australia’s spot in the last 16 of the tournament and eliminated the Olympic champions from contention. The match took place at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium in front of an enthusiastic crowd. Raso’s first goal came in the ninth minute with a low, right-footed shot, and she scored again in the 39th minute from a goalmouth scramble. Fowler sealed the win with a deft touch in the 58th minute, and Steph Catley scored a penalty in stoppage time. Australia needed a win after their previous defeat by Nigeria. Raso expressed her pride in the team’s performance and their never-say-die attitude. Canada, who needed a draw to advance, was disappointed with their early exit from the tournament. Goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan was visibly upset before Catley’s penalty kick. Canada coach Bev Priestman acknowledged that the team lacked belief and was rattled by the match. Australia’s victory was impressive considering they did not rely on their star player, Sam Kerr, who was on the bench due to injury. Australia finished at the top of Group B with six points, one ahead of Nigeria. Australia coach Tony Gustavsson praised the team’s belief and resilience. Canada’s captain Christine Sinclair started the match but was substituted at halftime as part of Priestman’s changes. Australia’s first goal was confirmed by VAR despite an offside flag, and their second goal was also confirmed after a failed clearance by Sheridan. Fowler’s goal was the icing on the cake, and Catley’s penalty sealed the victory.
