Women's World Cup: Round of 16

Brazil became the first seed to fall at the Women's World Cup when it lost to Australia, 1-0, on a late goal by Kyah Simon. France made quick work of South Korea with a 3-0 win in Montreal that set up a much-anticipated match against Germany on Friday at the Olympic Stadium. Canada stayed alive when it edged Switzerland, 1-0, on a goal by Josee Belanger, who was shifted from defense to the frontline for the game.

Germany served notice that it is ready to contend for the Women's World Cup title as it opened the round of 16 with a 4-1 win over Sweden. China edged upstart Cameroon, 1-0, to set up a date with the winner of the USA-Colombia match in the quarterfinals.

Celia Sasic
scored two goals and joined Anja Mittag, who scored once, as the tournament's top scorers with five goals apiece. Germany dominated the game with a 25-7 edge in shots. It did lose veteran defender Saskia Bartusiak for the quarterfinals as she picked up her second yellow card of the tournament.
