Portugal shock Australia to claim Algarve Cup podium position

The Portugal national women’s team has ended the Algarve Cup with a podium finish after a surprise win against Australia.

Ranked 38th in the world, Portugal beat the Matildas 2-1 in their third-place play-off on a wet and windy afternoon in Albufeira.
The final, which was to take place at Lagoa’s Bela Vista Stadium on Wednesday, was called off due to the heavy and persistent rain.

Organisers decided that the trophy would be shared between the Netherlands and Sweden.
