Paramount Plus Analyst & Former Matilda Grace Gill runs the ruler over the Matildas AFC Olympic Qualifying matches with Iran and Philippines in Perth.

Gill spoke in glowing terms of the Matildas front third setup with Captain Sam Kerr, veteran Caitlin Foord and Mary Fowler taking a leap forward in their connectivity and creativity. Gill said, “Caitlin Foord is in the form of her life” and the move to a central role paid dividends for the team and provides confidence around expectations of Olympic success.

The Matildas still have one more qualification step after these current matches to secure a place at the 2024 France Olympic Games. With likely matches against Japan, South Korea, China or North Korea the Matildas will need to continue their excellent form to ensure they qualify for France.
