In Sweden’s impressive performance against Italy, Angeldahl played a significant role.
Towards the end of the first half, Fowler thought she had scored her first goal of the tournament to double Australia’s lead. However, after a lengthy VAR check, her goal was disallowed for an offside in the build-up. Nevertheless, Raso soon restored the two-goal advantage by calmly tapping home the ball following a corner.
Fowler didn’t let the disappointment of the disallowed goal affect her performance, as she scored the third goal of the evening by elegantly finishing Caitlin Foord’s cut-back via the post.
Canada, needing only a draw to progress to the last-16, immediately launched an offensive to salvage their World Cup hopes. They came close to scoring when Deanna Rose’s low effort was saved by the feet of MacKenzie Arnold.
In the second half stoppage time, the Matildas were awarded a penalty, which was converted by Steph Catley, sealing a 4-0 victory and ensuring their passage into the knockout stages. Finishing as Group B victors, Australia will now face the second-placed nation from Group D (England, Denmark, or China) on Monday 7th August at 11:30 (UK time)
