Which Matildas are playing against China?

Tony Gustavsson, the Matildas’ head coach and IRL Ted Lasso, confirmed the 23 players who would make up the Matildas’ squad in the two friendlies against China.

Though we don’t know who the starting 11 will be until shortly before kick-off, the squad will consist of:

Notable absences from the standard Matildas squad are Katrina Gorry and Aivi Luik, who are both out for injuries but will hopefully return for the Paris Olympics.

And of course, the Australian captain, Sam Kerr, who if you are reading this article you probably already know has injured her ACL and won’t be playing in the Olympics. RIP.
