Torrential rain in Costa Rica wreaked havoc. With puddles forming on the surface and the ball holding up due to the deluge, the match was delayed for over an hour due to the conditions with play pausing in the 28th minute.

Prior to the rain delay, Brazil managed to find the opener through some neat build-up play. A cut into the box was pulled back for Priscila. While her first attempt was blocked, her second one was struck truly.
