& # 39; I feel like I have lowered the team a bit & # 39 ;, she said.

Sam Kerr looks down after losing the penalty shoot out during the round of Australia around 16 against Norway
Australia was the victim of the dreaded firefight, the same way that they left the 2016 Olympics.
Caroline Graham Hansen, Guro Reiten, Maren Mjelde and Ingrid Syrstad Engen scored their own spades, with Steph Catley being the only Australian to spare her bet.
After Kerr came 30 seconds closer within the opening of the game, Norway hit a good opener at 31 minutes as they exposed Australia's weakness in the transition.

After 59 minutes in the game, Kerr had the ball in the net and made it on. For the offside
Karina Saevik's curling pass was just outside the reach of Steph Catley, allowing Herlovsen to hit the ball and skillfully passing Williams on the nearest post.
The Matilda & # 39; s thought they had a lifeline when mid-time loomed, when Maria Thorisdottir leaned in to catch Kerr's bouncing cross, with referee Reim Hussein judging it as brushing defender's weapons and awarding defenders' weapons a penalty.

Kerr had the ball on the spot, only for the decision to be rolled back after a lengthy evaluation of the video assistant.
After 59 minutes in the game, Kerr had the ball in the net and made it on. For the offside.
But Australia did not give up hope, and Kellond-Knight, who had only one goal in 108 kick-off gigs, hit a low-angle corner that snuggled into the net after somehow dodging a group of players.

The full-time whistle brought relief to everyone on the Allianz Riviera, but there was no end to the chaos about resuming the game.
Kerr failed a one-on-one chance before Vilde Boa Rise got a great save with one hand from Williams.
After Kennedy & # 39; s resignation, Risa then hit the bar of more than 30 meters and tried to lob Williams from a long distance.
Chance of rain for Norway, where senior players Kellond-Knight, Emily van Egmond and Ellie Carpenter joined Kennedy after the time approached.
