It might seem an unlikely football rivalry but the Matildas and Brazil have faced each other at least annually for the past five years.
Number 6 Rio Olympics Quarter Finals 2016
This game was an epic, an exhibition of end to end attacking football with both sides doing everything but scoring. Both goalkeepers were in impeccable form against sides stacked with attacking talent.
Steph Catley hit the woodwork early with a slightly misdirected cross, and Debinha tested Lydia Williams soon after from long range.
A beautiful Logarzo dummy set up Kyah Simon who dragged her shot wide and soon after Alanna Kennedy was unlucky not to score with a well-struck volley.
Andressa Alves split the Matildas defence with a pass for Debinha who danced clear but shot over the bar before fashioning a chance for herself that Williams comfortably dealt with at the near post.
The second half saw Brazil take momentum but resolute and calm Australian defending kept them from troubling the scoreboard and Chloe Logarzo was painfully unlucky to see a rocket of a strike bounce off the crossbar with the keeper well beaten.
In a match full of fantastic saves, Lydia Williams made perhaps the best of her career in the closing minutes diving to stop from a few yards out despite being wrong-footed.
Brazil would win after a penalty shootout in front of their home crowd, after misses from Katrina Gorry and Alanna Kennedy for Australia and with only Marta missing the target for Brazil. This was an epic game of high quality and stakes that was only lacking a goal.
