Brazil, England open play with victories

Marta to miss Brazil's World Cup opener against Jamaica

Her first came in the 15th minute off a header and opened the scoring in the 3-0 contest.

Cristiane tucked in her second goal from a tight angle following the re-start as Andressa provided the assist again, before the 34-year-old completed her hat-trick with a powerful free kick that rattled the underside of the crossbar and landed in.

Jamaican goalkeeper Sydney Schneider saved a penalty shot by Andressa in the 38th minute to keep the match close in the first half.

Marta is a standout amongst the best players to ever play in the women's game however this is set to be her last World Cup at 33 years old and she will have a great deal of obligation laying on her shoulders in this tournament.

They begin their campaign with a challenge against Jamaica which they should win yet progressively troublesome tests lie in wait against Australia and Italy for the side remaining in tenth in the world rankings.

Five minutes into the second half, she widened the lead by tapping home a cross.

Schneider did, however, produce heroics by diving to keep out Andressa's spot kick, awarded for a handball by Allyson Swaby.

Brazil stopped a nine-game losing streak that began with a 4-1 defeat to the USA last August 2.

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

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup will run from June 7 to July 7.

The Women's World Cup is running now, with Group C and Group D beginning play on Sunday. It was the first hat trick since 1999 for the Brazilians, who played without six-time world player of the year Marta due to a left thigh injury.

Her first were both predatory finishes, but look at the whip to secure her treble.
