After a scoreless draw against the US earned the Matildas a valuable point last night, Australia’s National Women’s Football Team have secured themselves an Olympic quarterfinals berth against Great Britain.

Australia finished as the best third-placed team in the tournament, which sets them up to play against Group E winner, Great Britain, on Friday, July 30, 7:00 pm AEST.

This will be the third time the Matildas have progressed to the quarterfinals, after achieving the same at Athens 2004 and Rio 2016 before being knocked out by Sweden, 2-1 in Athens and then at Rio by home nation, Brazil in a penalties heartbreaker, 6-7.

If the Matildas were to achieve a positive result against Great Britain, it would be the first time they have made it into an Olympic semifinal and had the podium in reach.
