As the highly anticipated Women's World Cup approaches, the Australia Women's team finds itself in a promising position. With a talented squad and a track record of success, they are aiming to make a strong impact on the global stage once again, this time as co-hosts.
Led by head coach Tony Gustavsson, the team has been diligently preparing for the tournament, focusing on fine-tuning their strategies and sharpening their skills. Australia's strength lies in their attacking prowess, led by the prolific Sam Kerr, who serves as the team's captain and all-time leading goalscorer. Kerr's ability to find the back of the net is matched by her leadership qualities, making her an influential figure on and off the field.
With a well-balanced and talented squad, the Matildas are eager to showcase their skills and compete against the world's best and they have the potential to go far in the tournament. They exited the tournament at the quarter-final three times in a row between 2007 and 2015 and were knocked out in the Round-of-16 in the last edition.
Australian fans will be eagerly anticipating the team's performances, hoping to witness memorable moments and a successful campaign on the grandest stage of women's football. Who made it into Australia's Women's World Cup squad? GOAL takes a look.
