Matildas World Cup star Kyah Simon says the Matildas have left no stone unturned in preparing for their opening group game at the Rio Olympics and believes that the Australians have the tools to beat Canada on Wednesday.
Ahead of taking part in the Matildas first match of Rio 2016, indigenous star Kyah Simon says that her Olympic dream was forged in Sydney 2000 when Cathy Freeman sensationally won gold for Australia in the 400 metres.
After suffering a significant foot injury in November that caused her to miss over half a year of football, Matildas attacking weapon Sam Kerr is ready to be unleashed on Canada for Australia’s opening game at the Rio Olympics.
Heading into the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, Matildas star Emily Van Egmond says the Australian women’s team is looking to make history by securing the country’s first ever football medal at an Olympic games.
The last time the Matildas played Brazil it was a World Cup Round of 16 clash which looked destined to head into Extra Time before striker Kyah Simon made it 1-0 with 10 minutes to go to book a place in the Quarter-Finals.
