Preamble

It’s a last competitive match of 2019 for one of Australia’s most beloved teams. After a huge year, on and off the field, the Alen Stajcic saga and a mixed performance under huge expectations at the 2019 World Cup threatened to engulf the Matildas, but as they have so often, the team themselves have quietly pulled through – emerging with a landmark pay agreement to continue to fly the flag for women’s aspiration around the world.

It’s a second clash in three days against Chile – a team that showed in Sydney that they’re no slouches, despite South America’s notorious underfunding of the women’s game, and a misrepresentative world ranking. Will Ante Milicic ring the changes? Or will he try and embed new processes ahead of next year’s Tokyo Olympics? We’ll find out shortly.
