FINALLY! There's the whistle. Australia go from 2-0 down to 3-2 winners.
And they will, Foord will leave the pitch (slowly) to make way for Roestbakken.
And well into additional time, Austrlia look like they want to make a substitution...
Australia have really dominated this second half as they did for muc of the third. It would be heartbreaking for them to concede now.
Five minutes of additional time to play - I think this is what we in the trade call "squeaky bum time" for Australia.
Another Yellow card this time for Luana who goes in with a two-footed tackle on van Egmond.
A yellow card for Andressa who doesn't think it's very fair as she's penalised for Kellond-Knight hitting the deck. In fairness to Andressa, there wasn't much contact there.
This is tense. There will be a fair bit of added time here, I would venture, and Brazil still look dangerous.
Kerr really wants that goal. Alas, that was a terrible finish as the ball finds her in the area again and is promptly kicked wide of the goal.
Australia want to finish this and that's a good ball into the area to Kerr, but again she is frustrated - looks like she doesn't quite connect there.
Cristiane comes off now and is replaced by Beatrize.
A substitution for Australia as Raso comes on to replace Gielnik.
That will go down as an own goal by Monica.
THE GOAL HAS BEEN GIVEN!
The ref is now getting involved in the decision so...we wait.
Australia may have a goal disallowed after a stunning cross to Sam Kerr meets the net. Again, Kerr didn't get a touch to it so VAR will have a look at whether or not Kerr technically "distracted the goalkeeper in an offside position".
van Egmond takes it, it's not great and Thaisa sees it off. A corner now.
Santos is clawing at Kelland-Knight and brings her down. A dnagerous free kick for Australia now.
GOAL!!!!!! WOWEE! The ball is to Kerr but she doesn't touch it, the cross from Logarzo sails straight into the net.
A strange ball there by Yallop, I'm not sure if she thought there was someone waiting for her or not, but Barbara gets to it first at any rate.
van Egmond plays the ball forward to Foord but there's a bit too much on it.
A promising free-kick for Australia just outside the area. Good delivery by Kelland-Knight, but Barbara gets outof the box to get a hand to it.
So Marta and Vieira da Silva come off to be replaced by Bertolucci Paixa and da Silva.
The whistle has blown and we're back. A couple of substitutions here, one of whom is Marta who has come off now.
That's the whistle. We go into the break with everything to play for. Australia 1-2 Brazil
GOAL! Foord slides the ball into the net after the closest of calls by Kerr. Australia are back in the game.
A shot by Gielnik, but it sails into the arms of Barbara. Three minutes additional time to be played, here.
Brazil are looking for a third goal and Debinha has the ball, plenty of space, but no one to pass to.
GOAL! It's Cristiane again as she receives the ball in the box from Debinha's cross at heads it at the back of the net.
CHANCE! Kerr gets a shot on target but Barbara makes the save.
Australia on the other hand have really lost momentum since that penalty. They had been really dominating play up until that point.
Brazil are fast. Really fast. But their passing is a little sloppy today. At times this has looked a little style over substance.
Brazil are looking a bit more confident now after that goal.
GOAL! Marta steps up and slots the ball in the bottom left corner of the goal from the spot. That's her 16th World Cup goal.
The Australia side are protesting because the ref has given a penalty as Santos gets dragged down in the area.
OK, there woul dhave been a penalty there after a player is obviously brought down in the box. HOWEVER, VAR reveals a handball in the run up to that incident and the result is a free-kick to Brazil. How. Odd.
We might have a penalty now...
No foul given to Andressa who barges Kerr to the ground in the midfield.
That's Debinha again there who slides at the ball as it corsses into the box, but it's wide.
It's getting a bit physical out here. Kelland-Knight looks to foul Debinha.
Formiga is booked for a rather clumsy tackle. That means she'll miss Brazil's final group game.
The Australian strategy seems to be to cross to Kerr in the box, possibly hoping she can get her head to it. Brazil are doing well to shut those efforts down.
Australian keeper WIlliams reads the situation perfectly as she pounces on the ball before Cristiane can inflict any pain.
The ball stays in the Brazil box, Australia have had the lions share of the attack so far, but they can't quite keep hold of it.
The ball find Kerr in the box, but it looks like it doesn't connect properly. There's not enough on it.
Kelland-Knight has a shot at the goal but it's way over the bar. Still, got to admire the tenacity of the Australian side, so far.
Australia are pressing forwards, they're doing well, when Brazil have the ball, they're giving them no space.
Kelland-Knight whips the ball into the box, it's caught by Barbara.
First save of the match, Tamires speeds down the wing and shoots from the near side of the goal.
And that's the whistle, we're off.
Some stern vibes from the Brazil line-up as they sing their own anthem. They mean business today.
We've just had the Australian national anthem. Bit too much pick-up on those mics, perhaps...
Australia's Alana Kennedy on Marta...
" We have the rivalry with Brazil now at the last two major tournaments, where we knocked them out and they knocked us out. But when you’re on the field I don’t give a s**t who [Marta] is – she’s an opponent and I want to beat her."
Australia are under pressure now after losing to Italy, and who knows what will happen today, but there is a bit of rivalry between these two so this could be tasty.
In their first match of the tournament, Brazil eat Jamaica 3-0 with Cristiane becoming the oldest person to score a hat-trick at a World Cup. That puts them top of Group C thanks to a favourable goal difference.
The big news for Brazil's starting XI is that squillion-time world player of the year Marta will start - she found herself on the bench on Sunday against Jamaica, though Brazil are perhaps expecting a harder time of it today in Montpellier.
For the Australia side, a couple of changes from their starting XI against Italy, which ended in a shock 2-1 defeat. Polkinghorne and Raso drop back and are replaced by Gielnik and Kellond-Knight.
Australia: Williams, Kellond-Knight, Catley, Kennedy, Carpenter, Logarzo, van Egmond, Yallop, Foord, Kerr, Gielnik // Brazil: Barbara, Thaisa, Tamires, Andressa, Formiga, Debinha, Marta, Cristiane, L Santos, Kathellen, Monica.
