Brazil was spot on in their Women’s World Cup opener on Sunday, beating Jamaica 3-0 riding on Cristiane Rozeira’s hat-trick.
The South Americans dominated right through the match, opening the scoring after only 15 minutes. They, moreover, missed a penalty before half-time, yet Cristiane scored two more goals after the break.
This was Brazil’s first win of 2019, making their horror preparations before for the World Cup a thing of the past.
The South American side face a precarious task ahead of them in order to qualify from Group C, where Italy beat Australia 2-1 in an earlier game on Sunday.
The Selecao were aggressive early on, piled the pressure and the won themselves a number of corners scarcely giving the Jamaican side a chance to get out of their own half.
Brazil were by a long margin the better team, be that as it may, their hardwork bore fruits post 15 minutes as Cristiane’s header helped take the lead.
Post the first goal, there was no looking back as Brazil did not give any opportunity to the opponents to make a comeback.
Brazil play Australia on 13 June, Thursday, while Jamaica play Italy on 14 June, Friday, in their FIFA Women’s World Cup campaigns.
