'There was no viral soundbite from Samantha Kerr after her match-winning performance against Jamaica on Wednesday morning. Compared to her fired-up post-match performance in the aftermath of Australia’s dramatic and crucial 3-2 win over Brazil, in which she told the haters to “suck on that one”, Kerr was almost angelic in assessing her role in the 4-1 win over the Jamaicans. Of course, there probably is not much of a need to do a whole lot of talking after you’ve become the first Australian to score a hat-trick at a football World Cup, plus an extra goal just to help your team finish second in the group. Almost single-handedly, Kerr produced the sort of ruthless goal scoring performance she has become known for in the W-League with Perth Glory and the National Women’s Soccer League in the United States. \t \t\tMore Football\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tKerr clinic highlights need to truly unlock her brilliance\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tSam Kerr hits Jamaica for four, as Matildas progress to Round of 16 at World Cup\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tMatildas vs Jamaica: FIFA Women's World Cup live scores, blog\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tGüneş leads Turkish revival\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\tSam Kerr's childish sledge lacked class\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t \t\tFootball\t This time, Kerr did all her talking with her feet (and her head) to confirm her spot as one of Australia’s greatest ever sportspeople and drag the Matildas into the knockout rounds with her, avoiding the likes of Germany and France in the process. Serious concerns remain around the Matildas as they plot their path to Nice where an impressive Norway awaits, but in Kerr, Australia boasts a bonafide superstar of the game who can inspire her team to victory. Despite the scoreline, Australia was wasteful in midfield and leaky in defence. The result should certainly be celebrated, but the performance leaves a lot to be desired. The enormous contribution of Kerr over the course of the group stage has thus far papered over many of the cracks. She might not have scored against Brazil, but her movement in the front third certainly caused the Brazilians plenty of headaches, causing uncertainty among the Brazilian defenders (even if the referees didn’t judge her to be actively involved in the crucial third goal) which contributed massively to the second and third goals on the day. Her role was a more active one against Jamaica, as she ruthlessly exploited a nervy Jamaican defence over and over again. Sports opinion delivered daily       She outjumped her markers, avoided them all together and harassed them into two mistakes for the easiest of tap-ins. This really was the Sam Kerr show. Only the Italians have coped with Kerr so far this tournament, and even they could not do so without dragging her down to give away a penalty. In Kerr, Matildas coach Ante Milicic has a weapon which is truly the envy of almost every other team in the competition. His problem is finding new ways to find her in goalscoring positions. It was only against Jamaica that the Matildas tactic of getting the ball wide and into the penalty box had any real joy. Successes in the final third against Brazil were somewhat fortunate, while there was almost no success in these ventures down the wing against Italy. Kerr might boast a tremendous leap, but she has better feet and it is hard to imagine her having the freedom of the penalty box to run into against a much more organised Norwegian team. Sam Kerr. (Photo by Craig Mercer/MB Media/Getty Images) It is also worth noting that, while no one wants to take the gloss of Kerr’s supreme efforts, she was the third player in as many games to score a hat-trick against the Jamaicans. As the Matildas progress to tougher challenges in the match (hopefully matches) to come, the one-dimensional attacking approach of the Matildas needs to be urgently addressed by Milicic and Co. There’s nothing wrong with relying on a mercurial talent like Kerr to score the goals you need to win a World Cup, but if that’s Australia’s route to glory, then Milicic’s team will need to find a more reliable route to Kerr and a more efficient system for keeping goals out at the other end. Manage that and Kerr will handle the rest.'

Unlikely Cup moment that inspired Sam Kerr

Theater and Shows WWOS

Sam Kerr has been showered with gratitude, not just for her extraordinary four-goal performance against Jamaica but for a humble post-match interview.
'On the field Sam Kerr is a stone cold killer. Off it, she is a thoughtful and fierce female role model who fully understands her power to inspire. While Kerr may have missed their mark with her emotional on-field interview following the Matildas' extraordinary comeback win against Brazil , she nailed it with a perfect answer in a post-match chat following her stunning four-goal masterclass against Jamaica. Asked if there had been one moment from the World Cup so far that had inspired her, Kerr summed up what makes sport such a treasured part of society, showing once again why she is not just a champion, she's a humble champion. \'There's been plenty of moments to be fair, every time I walk out with these girls behind me it's an amazing feeling but an amazing moment for me that wasn't us was when Thailand scored the goal,\' Kerr said, referring to Thailand's historic first ever World Cup goal , scored in a 5-1 loss to Sweden. \'It was an amazing thing for me to see the emotion from all of them and how much it meant to them. \'It kind of gave me that extra bit of pride walking out for my country seeing how much it meant to another country to just score at a World Cup. So that's what inspired me, it's something little but I think it really affected me.\' Her answer sparked a strong reaction, with SBS host Lucy Zelic tweeting the interview in a glowing post thanking the Matildas skipper for \'always making us proud\'. https://twitter.com/LucyZelic/status/1141120206116233216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Making the interview all the more praise-worthy was the fact that it came immediately after one of the greatest individual performances in World Cup history , a time when she had every right to bask in her own glory. She is now one of just 10 players in the history of FIFA World Cups - men or women - to score four goals or more in a match joining USA stars Michelle Akers (1991) and Alex Morgan (earlier this tournament) as the only women to achieve the mark. https://twitter.com/Squawka/status/1141083969653370880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Following her performance, Kerr, who scored two goals with her head, gave a shout out to Socceroos legend Tim Cahill as a model for shorter players to win aerial battles with taller opponents. \'I guess I grew up watching Timmy Cahill. I practice it a lot but I'm also gifted, they’re my favourite goals so I’m pretty stoked with those two,\' Kerr said. Cahill was for many years Australia's best and most recognisable footballer but that mantle is now well and truly Kerr's as she moves to equal top of the golden boot standings in this World Cup and has an excellent shot of adding that honour to an already bulging list of achievements. No wonder FFA board member Remo Nogarotto was struggling for new superlatives to describe her standing in Australia. https://twitter.com/RNogarotto/status/1141091612380073986?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw'

What You Need to Nnow When Traveling in Australia

'Sydney Opera House.Photo: Anna Mustermann, Pixabay There are so many wonderful things to see and do in Australia that it doesn’t come as a surprise that it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.It doesn’t matter if you’re into nightlife and clubbing, spending lazy afternoons on a beach or you prefer camping and exploring nature, Australia is the place for you.The Land Down Under has a lot to offer, but there are also some things you should know before you book your ticket.We give you a few useful Australia travel tips: The Australian sun isn’t gentle Photo: MagicM, Bigstock You’ve probably heard this a million times from your parents already, but we have to say it again – cover up!You don’t want to be spending too much time out in the sun because it can be awful for your skin and bad for your overall health.The sun is really strong in Australia, so get your hands on some quality sunblock and apply it before leaving the house, even if you’re not going to be out for very long.You will get burned much faster than you would at home (or anywhere else in the world for that matter). Wear a cap or a hat, apply sunscreen or makeup with SPF, and you’ll be good to go.Australia is expensive Photo: Gripfast, Bigstock Make no mistake – Australia is one of the countries with the highest prices out there.This can be a pretty big shock if you’ve recently visited Thailand, India or China, and once you see that a simple drink can cost up to $15, you won’t be so keen on going on a shopping spree.If you’re hoping to stay on a budget, it might be a good idea to look for hostels when travelling with friends.Big cities such as Sydney and Melbourne are difficult to “do” when you’re on a budget, but with a bit of research, you can still manage.Getting around in Australia Sydney trains, Central Station.Photo: Andy Leung, Pixabay The most important thing is to get to your intended destination safely and to do that, you should prepare before your arrival.It’s easy to find affordable car hire from Gold Coast airport in advance, so you don’t have to worry about finding a car after you land.If you’re traveling the country and exploring, you might want to rent a reliable car so you don’t have to think about buses and trains.If, on the other hand, you’re staying in the Sydney area of New South Wales, it’s a good idea to get yourself an Opal card so you can use public transport without having to worry about buying different tickets for the train, bus, ferry or the metro.The Australian climate is strange Photo: Mike, Pexels Most people know that winters in Australia are sunny and warm, but not many are aware that the climate differs from region to region.This is a very big country and it’s only natural that the climate will vary depending on where you are traveling.Remember that the north has mostly tropical climate with two main seasons – the dry and the wet, whereas the South’s climate is a bit more temperate so you can experience all four seasons.Most people choose to visit Australia in December, January, and February as this is the time when there’s no school and everyone enjoys the summer, but if you’re hoping to visit the north, it might be better to visit in the winter (June to August). This is when the tropical area will be warm and dry.Australian visas Photo: Luap Vision, Bigstock Last but not least – you should get a visa if you’re planning on visiting.It doesn’t matter if you’re only staying for a couple of days or a few months, if you want to enter the country, you need to get a visa.The good news is that you can apply online for certain visas if you’re a tourist – the Electronic Travel Authority visa is the most popular among tourists as it’s valid for a year and allows you to stay up to three months at a time.Depending on why you’re visiting Australia, you should take some time to prepare for the trip, especially if you’re heading to the outback (it’s best described as “unforgiving”). For the most part, Australia is beautiful and everyone who comes to visit swears to come back again someday.If you’re hoping to have a great time, take our travel tips to heart, be prepared and enjoy your trip to the Land Down Under!Tracey Clayton is a full-time mom of three girls.She’s passionate about fashion, home décor, and healthy living.Her motto is: “Live the life you love, love the life you live.” Source link Travel .
