The Matildas had a mixed 2019, taking out the Cup of Nations with three impressive victories before suffering a disappointing early exit in the Women’s World Cup earlier this year.
Since then the team has kicked off 2020 positively with two big wins and a draw from three Olympic qualifiers in February, and with plenty more to come over the coming months you won’t miss a minute when watching key games on TV or streaming the action live to a mobile device.
2020 Matildas Olympic Qualifiers Preview
The Matildas have played just two games since their World Cup exit last June, beating Chile in consecutive friendlies in November of last year. They’ll be eager to continue that winning form with a little bit more on the line this February, with three high stakes Olympic qualifiers scheduled within a week. They’ll head to China to face Chinese Taipei, Thailand and China, with the first match scheduled to take place on the 3rd of February, and you won’t miss a key minute when streaming the Matildas live.
As the seventh ranked team in the world, the Matildas will be heading into each of the three matchups as the comfortable favourites. The World Cup was a disappointment but as they showed at the Cup of Nations they are more than capable of producing high quality football. Captain Sam Kerr showed just how talented she is with five goals in four games at the World Cup, and she’ll be eager to lead the side to three victories as they search for Olympic qualification.
** The FFA announces Matildas games Postponed **
The FFA has announced that the upcoming Matildas games in April against the USA and Canada have been postponed. The reason for this is the COVID-19 coronavirus, and concerns that arenas and travel may expose players and fans to this community health concern. If any significant new details are made available, this notice will include them and the TV fixtures will be updated.
