Brazil were knocked out of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup following a 0-0 draw against Jamaica in Melbourne on Wednesday afternoon.
Jamaica also made history as the first Caribbean nation to reach the Round of 16 in the history of the competition.

Jamaica joined Switzerland and Japan as one of just three nations yet to concede a goal at Australia & New Zealand 2023.
