    Sam Kerr scores four goals to propel Australian women into next round of World Cup

    Sam Kerr has scored all four goals in a 4-1 win over Jamaica to propel the Australian women's football team into the round of 16 at the World Cup in France


    The fourth goal secured second in the group on goal difference from Brazil and a potentially easier quarter final against Norway.

    Kerr is relieved. and says at the time she didn't know how important it would be.

    Brazil could potentially face hosts France after finishing as one of the best third placed teams despite a 1-nil win over Group winners Italy.

    Marta became the highest goal scorer in world cup history for men or women with her 17th in this her fifth World Cup.
