They’ve just beaten the world’s number one ranked team, but Shellharbour’s Matildas star Caitlin Foord insists it doesn’t scratch the surface of what the national team hopes to achieve in the coming years.
After starting for Australia in their historic 1-0 win over powerhouse USA last weekend, Ford felt the Matildas have every reason to continue setting their goals high in the future.
“It was a big achievement for what we’ve done, but we haven’t really won any tournaments yet so that’s obviously a big thing for us,” she said. “We want to start winning things.”
The Matildas will play again on Monday against Japan, who eliminated them from the 2015 World Cup.
“They are technically very good,” Foord said.
“They are a possession based team and are very dangerous of set pieces because their quality of technique is so good. That is a danger for us, but if we play out game I think we can away with the result.”
