The Westfield Matildas will play Japan in the final of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Jordan tomorrow morning (Saturday, 3am AEST) after they defeated Thailand on penalties in the semi-final of the competition earlier in the week.
The Member Federations join Football Federation Australia (FFA) in welcoming the announcement by FIFA on the terms of reference for a collaborative working group to review football’s representative congress in Australia.
The Matildas touched down in Jordan last week, with the squad hitting their straps with the aim of adding a second AFC Women’s Asian Cup to their trophy cabinet. Football Queensland journalist Chloe Walker spoke with Matildas and Brisbane Roar striker Emily Gielnik about her road to Jordan.
Ten Queenslanders have been announced as part of the twenty-two Australian Match Officials selected on the FIFA Panel of International Referees for 2018, the largest contingent represented on the list. Football Queensland Referee State Coach Ted Kearney said the announcement is recognition for the hard work of the match officials.
