Kerr’s Four Goals Lifts Australia to 4-1 Win Over Jamaica

Sam Kerr provided the Australian side with all the offensive firepower they would need, scoring all four of the team’s goals in their 4-1 over Jamaica during the knockout round of the Women’s World Cup on Tuesday night at Stade des Alpes in Grenoble, France.

With the goals, Kerr becomes the first Australian player – man or woman – to score three goals or more at a World Cup. Additionally, with the four goals she puts herself right behind only two other players – Alex Morgan and Michelle Akers – who have scored more goals in a single Women’s World Cup game. Morgan and Akers both scored five goals in one game.

The win lifts the Matildas into the round-of-16 in the tournament where they take on Norway on Sunday.

With an 0-3 record in the group stage, the Jamaican ReggaeGirlz squad have been eliminated from the tournament.
