In the Group G match between South Africa and Italy, the Italian defender Benedetta Orsi scored an own goal from outside her own penalty area. This goal helped Banyana Banyana (the nickname of the South African Women's team) to go on and win the match and secure a place in the last 16 for the first time in their history.

  • Italy's Benedetta Orsi has an "absolute shocker" as she scores an own goal to level the scores against South Africa at the Women's World Cup (BBC.co.uk)
