Well done Matildas! Not only proud of the team's ability but also their belief and attitude. They will take this through to their future matches and show the world what they can do. Thanks for showing the way forward for Australian football.

Caitlin Foord was the player of the match for me. Great to see such a young player not just cope with the pressure but flourish. Great future ahead!! Go the Tillys!!!!!
