Marta scored the only goal of the game against Italy

Marta’s second-half penalty sent Brazil into the last 16 of the Women’s World Cup with a 1-0 win against Italy on Tuesday that ensured they finish as one of the best third-placed sides.

It was Marta’s 17th World Cup goal, moving her ahead of Germany’s Miroslav Klose to become the outright top scorer in both the men’s and women’s tournaments.

Marta, the only player to score at five different World Cups, converted a spot kick in the 74th minute as Brazil finished third in Group C on six points, level with Italy, who top the group on goal difference.
