  • Matildas WWC

Bonansea also scored in the 56th minute of the 2-1 win Sunday in Valenciennes, France.

Looking for her first World Cup goal, Matildas captain Sam Kerr twice got into unsafe positions in the first five minutes but couldn't get a meaningful shot away. "We shook everything off and we started playing".

Australia, seeded for the first time at the World Cup, were favourites at the Stade du Hainaut but a ninth-minute blunder turned out to a harbinger. She capitalized on an Australia mistake to set up the equalizer.

Surviving that scare, Australia went up the other end and won a penalty in the 20th minute after Sara Gama was guilty of bringing down Kerr in the box.

The centre back's heavy touch was scooped by Bonansea, who wrong-footed Alanna Kennedy, before smashing a right-footed strike between Emily van Egmond and Walker into the bottom right corner of the net.

Barbara Bonansea of Juventus scored both of Italy's goals in the second half, with her second coming just seconds before the final whistle.

And Australia were again the makers of their own undoing deep into injury-time as goalkeeper Lydia Williams was caught all at sea from a deep corner delivery to allow Bonansea to head home the victor.

In the dying minute, Valentina Cernoia swung in a freekick into the box, Bonansea raised between the defenders to steer her header into the net.

Italy takes on Jamaica in another group stage match at noon Friday in Reims, France.
