Women's World Cup promo goes live

The FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks-off in Canada on June 6 and to get fans in the mood (as if that would be difficult) the TV promo has just gone live.

A youthful Matildas outfit, and 2014 Women’s Asian Cup runners-up, will be gunning for glory in their sixth World Cup appearance.

The Australians have twice reached the quarter-finals in 2007 and 2011 and are pitted against USA, Sweden and Nigeria in Group D.
