After taking out the Cup of Nations with three impressive victories, the Matildas had a disappointing early exit in the Women’s World Cup earlier this year.
Having enjoyed a few months off since then they’ll be keen to get back on the winners’ list when they host Chile for a couple of friendlies in November, and you won’t miss a minute when watching key games on TV or streaming the action live to a mobile device.
2019 Matildas Friendlies Preview
The Matildas get their first chance to atone for their World Cup disappointment in November, when the Chilean national side visits Australia for a pair of friendlies. And they’ll feel confident in their ability to do just that, too; the Matildas are ranked eighth in the world while Chile are back in 37th, and with captain Sam Kerr – who scored five goals in four games at the World Cup – at the helm they are a good chance of winning both of these games. Regardless of the result it will be an exciting couple of matches, and you won’t miss a key minute of their attempt to redeem the World Cup exit when streaming the Matildas live.
Following that, the attention of the national side will turn to Olympic qualification. Courtesy of a high ranking relative to most other Asian sides, the Matildas were given a free ride through to the third round of qualification, which will kick off early in February of 2020. With eight teams being split into two groups of four, they’ll play against each of the other three teams in their group. If they manage to finish in the top two in their group – which they’ll certainly be expecting to – the Matildas will then play a two-match tie against another team which advanced in March, with the reward for victory a spot in the Olympics.
