Australia rallied back from two goals to defeat Brazil 3-2 at the FIFA Women's World Cup in Montpellier on Thursday.

Instead of collapsing, the grit and verve synonymous with the side came to the fore.

Within the confines of the 90 minutes, this was a fantastic win.

But given the weight of expectations and negativity in the air, it was an all-time classic.

But starting with Caitlin Foord's one-touch goal from close range before halftime, none of that mattered anymore.

Weighty praise given the 45-year-old's long-standing involvement in Australian national teams. Samantha Kerr put Australia ahead in the first half but Barbara Bonansea equalised for Italy in the second half before providing the knockout punch just seconds before the final whistle.

"There were a lot of critics talking about us, but we're back, so suck on that one", Kerr remarked.

The comeback was complete in the 66th minute when a ball into the box looking for Kerr was headed into her own net by Monica. "We spoke today and she is feeling well and gave me confidence", Vadao said.

A robust performance from the Australian side in the first half wasn't wholly reflected by the scoreline, and a solid penalty shout from Tameka Yallop was overruled due to a handball further back on the pitch. From the best performances to the buzziest moments, we'll make sure you don't miss a thing from France. "For us to just be able to go and play and enjoy bring everyone in and have that feeling on the first day. was something that was very important for us and very special for us".

"This victory belongs to all the players, they deserve it".

There was also controversy, particularly with their victor. But were they given an unfair advantage by the ever-contentious VAR system, after the third goal was allowed despite Kerr's obvious offside?

The first goal was also contentious.

Marta converted a penalty to move level with Miroslav Klose's tally of 16 goals at World Cup finals before Cristiane, who scored a hat-trick in Brazil's opening win, made it 2-0 only for the Matildas to stage a remarkable fightback.

Again in 38 minute Brazilian Striker Christine Rozeira scored second goal for her team to leading the match by 2-0 against Australia.
