Just In: Australia beat France to reach Women’s World Cup semi-finals

Australia beat France to reach Women’s World Cup semi-finals after a grueling 20-shot penalty shootout.

The Matildas made it into the semis for the first time ever after Mackenzie Arnold’s heroics and Cortnee Vine’s winning goal.

It ended 7-6 in their favour.

According to DailyMail, that was the longest penalty shootout in Women’s World Cup history. What follows could be the longest celebration in Matildas history.

Even if the rest of the tournament doesn’t go their way, they’ve already given Australia a sporting memory that will never fade.

What a watershed moment for the women’s game in this country. 

Seven’s commentators are reporting that grown men in the crowd are crying. Anthony Albanese (Australia’s Prime Minister) looks close to tears of joy and Sport Minister Anika Wells is crying.
