Cristiane scores hat trick in Brazil’s win over Jamaica

Marta to miss Brazil's World Cup opener against Jamaica

Shaw did manage three shots on target, but had little impact as the Jamaicans sunk to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the South Americans in their Group C encounter, with her counterpart Cristiane helping herself to a hat-trick in front of nearly 18,000 spectators.

Marta suffered the thigh injury in practice last week but had returned to training Tuesday. The 34-year old Brazilian overtook Ronaldo, who was 33 years old when he scored a hat-trick for Portugal against Spain in their 3-3 draw in the men's 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Juventus' Bonansea popped up at the back post to head home the victor having already levelled for the dogged Italians.

Victory at Stade des Alpes in Grenoble meant Vadao's side maintained their ideal record in World Cup openers and also snapped a run of nine straight defeats in the lead-up to the tournament since a 2-1 win over Japan last July. "But it only holds real value if we get out of the group, so let's wait and see how great it is", Italy coach Milena Bertolini said.

"We scored three goals but I think we need to be more effective to score more goals". Italy is competing in the World Cup for the first time since 1999. Her eighth-minute strike was ruled out for the tightest of offsides following a long check via the video assistant referee (VAR) system. The 25-year-old Kerr's spot-kick was brilliantly saved by Laura Giuliani but the goalkeeper could only push the ball back out to Kerr, who slammed home the rebound.

After that the well-organised Italians slowly squeezed the life out of their opponents.
