FULL TIME: Brazil beats Italy 1-0, but it’s not all bad news for the Azzurre.

Even though Italy, Australia and Brazil all finished with six points in Group C, it’s the Italians who are atop the group thanks to goal differential. (See, that 5-0 win sure did come in handy, didn’t it?) Australia, behind its Sam Kerr-powered win over Jamaica, finished second and Brazil is third.

Italy’s next opponent is still to be determined.

UPDATE: 74’ — Brazil takes the lead on a somewhat questionable penalty call. Marta surpasses Miroslav Klose for the all-time World Cup scoring lead after she converts from the spot.

HALFTIME: Italy and Brazil have provided a good number of close calls through the opening 45 minutes, but neither team has found the back of the net in a scoreless first half.

Both goalkeepers, Laura Giuliani and Barbara, are also putting on a show, combining for a handful of really good saves in the first half.

UPDATE: 17’ — Laura Giuliani’s fantastic Women’s World Cup continues. She denies Brazil on a flurry corner kicks, with a fantastic near-post save being the best of the bunch.

We’re still scoreless.

And just like that, we have reached the final step of play in Group C for the eight-player Juventus Women contingent at the Women’s World Cup and the rest of the Italian women’s national team.

It seemed like we were here just a couple of days ago celebrating Barbara Bonansea’s second-half double that crushed Australian hearts and set Italy up for what they’ve been able to accomplish so far in the group stage.

But, business in Group C isn’t finished.

No, today they’ve got quite the interesting group stage finale against quite the interesting opponent with plenty riding on it even though both squads are currently in position to get through to the knockout phase.

Italy has already clinched its spot in the round of 16. With a draw, Brazil will join the Azzurre in the round of 16 with a draw or a win. But for Italy, this game provides the opportunity to achieve something that very few people were expecting them to achieve entering the tournament — finish atop a group that included both Brazil and Australia.

Yet, that is what Italy can do today.

With that comes the opportunity to get a favorable matchup against a third-place finisher in the round of 16 and then have a spot in the quarterfinals that much closer to becoming a reality.

First, though, is the task of Brazil. The same Brazil that is coming off a tough-as-all-hell loss against Australia last Thursday.

There’s the chance for some fireworks. Then again, seeing as what this Italy team has already done through its first two Women’s World Cup games, that seems like a certainty.

Stick around as this post is updated throughout the match.
