In preparation for their upcoming friendlies against Chile in November, the Matildas will meet in Sydney in early October for their first training camp after the completion of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

12 of the 23 players who travelled to France have been recalled for the camp, along with several other players looking to return to the Matildas or crack into the team for the first time.

“This camp will provide a great chance for numerous players on our radar to impress leading up to our November friendly series against Chile in Parramatta and Adelaide,” head coach Ante Milicic said.

“As we look ahead to next year’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifiers, and beyond that to the new AFC Women’s Asian Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup cycle, it is important that we build more depth in the Matildas’ playing ranks, and this camp will provide a good starting point for that.

“Some players are missing from this camp, and there are a variety of reasons for that including individual loads, injuries, and personal circumstances, however we will be selecting what we believe will be our strongest possible squad for November’s matches against Chile in Australia.”

The Westfield Matildas will play Chile on Saturday November 9 at Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta, before meeting the South Americans at Coopers Stadium in Adelaide again on Tuesday November 12.
