Girelli Hat-Trick Secures Italy To Last 16 At World Cup

Italy’s Cristiana Girelli bagged a hat-trick and substitute Aurora Galli struck twice as they thrashed Jamaica 5-0 to qualify for the last 16 of the women’s World Cup on Friday.

Back in the tournament after a 20-year absence, the Azzurre top Group C with six points ahead of Brazil and Australia who have three. Jamaica have yet to earn a point.

Girelli opened the scoring with a re-taken, VAR-awarded penalty before netting again either side of the interval.

Galli rounded off the victory with two goals after coming on midway through the second half.
