Australian Women’s National Team Thread - Our best chance at a World Cup


#303

Too much white but otherwise happy with it.


#304

Was about to say the same thing. They might have to cover it up with some duct tape!


#305

<Insert marketing blurb about paying homage to Australian football’s administrative incompetence>


#306

I think it looks good, love the second strip too.


#307

Pretty disappointing not seeing a big CALTEX across the front!


#308

I think you’ve you’ve forgotten the kit might be quite thin/see-through so sports bras would be seen…


#309

I’m going to buy one of these kits.

Wear it to the realo.

And buy a house for under a hunjie. #90sasfuck


#310

Big game today vs USA. Hopefully our Liz Ralston can make her Matildas debut.

Thoughts? Maybe De Vanna lucky to start. I think her ability to make stuff happens means that Ante is keen to give her every opportunity to make her case to go to France. Gielnik and Raso probably had good cases to start on recent form.


#311

Good crowd in attendance.


#312

ex-Sydney player Emily Sonnett lining up for US.


#313

This looks like its going to be a cracking game. Sometimes men’s football international friendlies can be a bit mundane, but women’s football international matches are usually anything but.


#314

Taken the sting out of them a bit after being under the pump for the opening minutes.


#315

What a strike.


#316

Poor work from Polkinghorne there.


#317

Polkinghorne got done like a dinner there. Alex Morgan is brilliant, though. Heck of a way to bring up her 100th international goal.

Kerr missed a decent chance straight away with probably our first decent possession in the final third. This is an entertaining game, but concerning to see how open we are in transition.


#318

De Vanna! She’s had so much space on the left all game.


#319

So the USA have another 4 friendlies organised before the World Cup, however Wikipedia has this as our last game.

Have we got anything else organised before June?


#320

Bosh! Great hit! That’s what she’s there for!
Interesting having Foord as what looks like a #10. It’s not what I would have as her ideal role but she’s done OK, more as a running at the defense kind of #10.


#321

holy crap, turned it on just in time to see the goal


#322

Strange positioning by their right-back but it was great to see De Vanna nail that big chance, as I’ve been quite worried about how she will go at the World Cup in June. I didn’t think she was that great in the last W-League season for us.
