New Zealand goalkeeper Erin Nayler is hopeful that the Ferns can do enough at the World Cup in France to help the women's game grow in a country where rugby dominates and football often struggles for media attention.

"It's a difficult one because rugby is so popular in New Zealand and everyone follows that, but for the youth, women's football is the biggest sport," Nayler tells AFP.

"I think over the next few years it will grow and I think with this World Cup, hopefully it will get some more exposure and continue to grow and maybe be one of the biggest sports in New Zealand."

Soccer-Australia fight back to beat Brazil as Marta scores landmark goal

Soccer-Australia fight back to beat Brazil as Marta scores landmark goal Australia came from two goals down to beat Brazil 3-2 in the women's World Cup on Thursday, as an own goal from Monica capped a superb fightback and overshadowed a milestone goal for Marta. Marta, 33, became the first player to score at five different World Cups as she put Brazil ahead from the penalty spot with a record-extending 16th World Cup goal before Cristiane doubled the lead. Caitlin Foord reduced the arrears on the stroke of halftime before Chloe Logarzo equalised and Monica beat her own keeper to hand Australia all three points.

Established as her country's number one, she believes the standard of the French league has helped her progress as a player.

Bordeaux finished fourth in the just-completed season, albeit a long way behind champions Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain in second.

"The league is very competitive, every team is strong," she says.

"I think as a goalkeeper playing against some of the best players in the world at Lyon and PSG is very important for my development and for my preparation for the World Cup."

What of this World Cup? New Zealand are in a tough Group E along with European champions the Netherlands, Canada and Cameroon.

They kick off their campaign against the Dutch in the northern port city of Le Havre on Tuesday, and Nayler hopes the Ferns can make a bigger impression than four years ago, when they finished bottom of their group winning a game.

On that occasion they started off with a 1-0 defeat against the Dutch, but this time Nayler says the team are aiming for the knockout stage.

'Rough ride'

"We played the Netherlands at the last World Cup as well, so we know them quite well, they are a very strong team, they have a lot of strong players.

"At the last World Cup we narrowly lost to them by one goal, but I think if we play well we can get a result against them. We just have to show up and perform well on the day."

The team have never made it beyond the group stage at a World Cup, but a 1-0 friendly win away to one of the pre-tournament favourites, England, just before they set off for France hinted at their capabilities.

The Scot, Tom Sermanni -- formerly coach of Orlando Pride -- took over as coach late last year and led the team to victory at the OFC Nations Cup.

"We have had a difficult build-up, we have changed coach three times in the last two years, so it's been a little bit of a rough ride," Nayler admitted.

"Getting out of the group would be the goal."

Nayler, a former molecular biology student, is also confident that the month-long tournament can be a turning point for the women's game as a whole.

"I think it will be really interesting, I think women's football has grown a lot over the last four years since the last World Cup and I think, being in Europe as well, there will be a lot of support and I think a lot of the French will be behind it," she says.
