Australia (W) vs Ireland (W) Match Details:
League: Women’s World Cup
Venue: Sydney Football Stadium
Time: 20th July, 3:30 pm
Women’s World Cup Group B is kicking off on Thursday the 20th of July at 3:30 pm where Australia are taking on Ireland at the Sydney Football Stadium. Australia are the co-hosts of this tournament therefore; they will be feeling the pressure going into this match. Their confidence should be quite high as they are coming into the tournament after a morale boosting 1-0 victory against France over the weekend. It was Mary Fowler who came off the bench to secure the winner in the second half. Australia’s recent form has been near perfect. They have won their last five games in all competitions. They have also made it out of the group stage in their last four World Cups and will be looking to do the same this time around.
Their opponents, Ireland however, are making their debut in the Women’s World Cup. They are not coming into the tournament with the best form. They are yet to win a game this calendar year. Their latest being a 3-0 loss against France on the 7th of July. It does not help that their first game in this tournament is against one of the favourites to win the whole competition, however, they will be extra motivated as this is their first time playing in the World Cup. Their main focus should be keeping Sam Kerr quiet which is not an easy task in any sense of the word. This should be an interesting match and will be one to watch.
