Australia entered the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup as heavy favorites to top Group C and cruise into the tournament's knockout round — until they actually played a match. That's when they suffered a stunning, 2-1 defeat to Italy, surrendering a tie-breaking goal with 4:40 elapsed in stoppage time, as The Guardian reported. Now the Matildas face a must-win game when they take on group-topping Brazil, who easily cruised past a Jamaica team that was simply happy to be playing its first-ever World Cup. But Head Coach Ante Milicic has at least two changes in mind to snap the Australians out of their doldrums in the match that will live stream from Montpellier.

Kellond-Knight was forced to start the Italy game on the bench for Australia but is expected to be fit to start on Thursday, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
