Alisson not guaranteed as Brazil's No.1 goalkeeper claims Taffarel

Alisson not guaranteed as Brazil's No.1 goalkeeper claims Taffarel Alisson does not have a guaranteed starting spot for Brazil, according to Claudio Taffarel. The Liverpool shot-stopper is currently Brazil’s first-choice between the sticks, but the national team’s goalkeeping coach Taffarel, who always works as Galatasaray’s goalkeeping coach, claims Manchester City’s Ederson is pushing him hard. Much like the two club’s hard fought Premier League title chase this season, Ederson and Alisson are not far apart, with both goalkeepers deserving of a starting spot in their national side. And according to Taffarel, Ederson is doing his best to pile pressure on Alisson’s spot as Number One.

Women's World Cup storylines to keep an eye on

Women's World Cup storylines to keep an eye on Summer is the time for international soccer competitions. Last year, the men had their World Cup, which France won by taking down Croatia in the finals. Speaking of France, that’s where the 2019 Women’s World Cup is being held. If you are wondering what to pay attention to in the competition, here are some storylines to follow. Will the United States repeat? The American men weren’t able to qualify for the World Cup, but their female counterparts have been a dominant force in women’s soccer for decades at this point. The United States women are the defending champs, having won the 2015 World Cup by besting Japan in the final. Only the Germans have ever been able to repeat.

Brazil , officially the Federative Republic of Brazil (Portuguese: República Federativa do Brasil , listen ), is the largest country in both South America and Latin America.

The Matildas fell to a shock 2-1 defeat to Italy in their opening Group C match and dare not lose against Brazil in Montpellier (kick-off 1600 GMT) with criticism of coach Ante Milicic ringing in their ears.

Milicic, who has been in charge for six months, was slammed back home for his gung-ho tactics that allowed Italy to attack behind a high defensive line.

In the aftermath he and forward Caitlin Foord said they would not change their style, which could prove risky against a Brazil side that impressed in a 3-0 hammering of Jamaica with Cristiane scoring a hat-trick.

Brazil are level on three points with Italy, who play Jamaica on Friday, and a defeat for the pre-tournament dark horses Australia would put them at risk of being knocked out or having to face the winner of either Group A or B if they squeeze through as one of the four best third-placed finishers.

That could mean a clash with either France or Germany, who both took control of their groups with hard-fought wins over Norway and Spain respectively on Wednesday.

Le Sommer rescues Renard

Eugenie Le Sommer fired hosts France to the top of Group A from the penalty spot with 18 minutes left in Nice.

The Lyon star's second goal of the tournament put France on a perfect six points -- three clear of Norway and Nigeria -- and saved the blushes of her club teammate Wendie Renard, who had cancelled out Valerie Gauvin's 46th-minute opener for Les Bleues with a barely-believable own goal.

Renard, whose height and power had led to Norway using a tall press officer to simulate her presence in the area for set-pieces in training, was distraught after tapping Isabell Herlovsen's cross into her own net under no pressure.

Germany advanced to the final, slaughtering the hosts in the greatest humiliation in Brazilian Sami Khedira advanced through the ruins of the Brazil defence and rolled the ball to Toni Kroos, who Brazil are missing some bloke named Neymar, after he suffered the rather alarming injury that is a

"I made a big mistake, scoring a goal against my own team, unfortunately for me and unfortunately for my team," Renard told broadcaster Canal+.

"We didn't let our heads drop... and we were rewarded with the penalty."

Germany virtually assured themselves of missing a clash with rampant holders United States in the last 16 after brushing off the absence of star player Dzsenifer Marozsan to beat Spain 1-0 and take control of Group B.

Marozsan will miss at least the final Group B match against South Africa after breaking her toe in her side's opening 1-0 win over China.

'Extra motivation'

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Sara Daebritz made Germany strong favourites to top the group by pouncing three minutes before the break ahead of dithering Spain defender Marta Torrejon, who failed to clear after goalkeeper Sandra Panos saved Alexandra Popp's header.

The Germans are three points clear of Spain and a point against South Africa on Monday will guarantee they top Group B and avoid a potential clash with title holders USA.

Asked by reporters if watching the USA dismantle Thailand 13-0 on Tuesday in their opening match had been "extra motivation" to finish top, coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg smiled: "Both teams knew they didn't want play the winners of Group F."

Second-placed Spain, who were wasteful despite dominating possession and were left to rue Nahikari Garcia slicing wide when clean through in the 14th minute, should still progress but face a trickier test against China on Monday.

China face Group B rivals South Africa in Paris on Thursday (1900 GMT) with both looking for their first points.

France beats Brazil 2-1 in extra time, reaches WCup quarters.
France survived a tense extra-time knockout match against Brazil and advanced to the Women's World Cup quarterfinals when captain Amandine Henry redirected Amel Majri's free kick for a tiebreaking goal in the 107th minute of a 2-1 victory on Sunday night at Le Havre. The World Cup hosts, in the quarterfinals for the third straight time, will play the defending champion United States or Spain at Paris on Friday. Valérie Gauvin, whose first-half goal was disallowed in a video review, put fourth-ranked France ahead in the 52nd minute but Thaisa tied the score 11 minutes later for No. 10 Brazil.
