Group C: Italy vs Brazil (3pm EST)
This is not necessarily a big game for Italy: having beaten both Jamaica (5-0!) and Australia (2-1) with a goal difference of +6, the Italians are essentially already through to the next round. For Brazil, though, there is some pressure to get a result to avoid being leapfrogged by Australia, which trails by only two goals but will play the weak Jamaican team at the same time. Italy may rest some players in anticipation of the knockout round.
Group C: Australia vs Jamaica (3pm EST)
The weakest team in the tournament, Jamaica, is clinging to life with no points and a goal difference of -8. They will need a small miracle to upset Australia, which surprised Brazil 3-2. The most likely outcome is a win by Australia, but the Reggae Girlz have nothing to lose at this point.
