The Jamaicans barely got into stride at the Stade des Alpes as Brazilian striker Cristiane, 34, became the oldest player to score a hat-trick at the FIFA Women's World Cup and the first Brazilian to bag three in a single game since Sisi and Pretinha led Brazil to a 7-1 hammering of Mexico in 1999.

Marta suffered the thigh injury in practice last week but had returned to training Tuesday.

Andressa had a good chance to double Brazil's lead from the penalty spot seven minutes before the interval but goalkeeper Sydney Schneider denied the forward.

Brazil would have won by a bigger margin but for Schneider.

Bonansea scored the equalizer for the 15th-ranked Italians in the 56th minute and headed home the victor past goalkeeper Lydia Williams in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Jamaica's Khadija "Bunny" Shaw pointed to inexperience after the Reggae Girlz suffered a 3-0 defeat to Brazil in their first-ever FIFA Women's World Cup match yesterday. "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. "What can I say, it's incredible, and scoring with my head as well, which never happens with me", said Bonansea, who had scored Italy's first two World Cup goals in two decades.

"We scored three goals but I think we need to be more effective to score more goals".

- Brazil has maintained its record of winning 100 percent of its opening World Cup matches.

The Aussies quickly picked up the pace and were soon in front through their star Kerr, who was clumsily brought down by the otherwise excellent Sara Gama in the 21st minute. The 27-year-old pounced on a awful first touch from Clare Polkinghorne to race through and level with a smart finish past Aussie stopper Lydia Williams.
