High-stakes matchup: Australia and France battle for the Women’s World Cup semi-final berth

High-stakes matchup: Australia and France battle for the Women’s World Cup semi-final berth

Bad news for Australia as the members have lost in the quarterfinals in the last four Women’s World Cups. Despite this, Matildas has a very good record against France, beating the Blues 1-0 in a friendly match in July. So I think it could be a player. Spain and Sweden have qualified and England or Colombia await the winner of the semi-finals.

picked the starting 11 of the match as they beat Denmark 2-0 in the round of 16, with no changes to the roster. That means captain Sam Kerr (which Gustafson says will start if he returns to the sport after a calf injury) is sitting on the bench. Kyah Simon, who was unable to play for even a minute in the World Cup last season due to a knee ligament injury, is also a substitute.

Australia XI: Arnold; Hunt, Kennedy, Raso, Cooney-Cross, Foord, Fowler, van Egmond,Carpenter, Gorry, Catley

Substitutes: Williams, Nevin, Ruig, Vine, Chidiak, Simon, Grant, Mika, Polkinghorn, Yalob, Wheeler, Kerr.

France coach Leonard made just one change in the last time they beat Morocco 4-0. . Comes in at right-back and Chelsea’s Eve Perisset is replaced by Maelle Lakar. captain Wendie Renard made his 150th senior hat.

Australian fans were able to watch what could be a historic moment in Brisbane today. Chris Brandon reaches heights with this patriotic trick. “He’s hiding his face,” laughed his wife, Lisa Wright. Fans of 11-year-old Mia and 8-year-old Darcy were delighted, especially Darcy, who was obsessed with watching Disney’s Matildas documentary 3 or 4 times.

Wright said the family predicted today that Australia will beat France 2-1.

England fans may disagree, but that seems to be the most important thing in the quarterfinals. Three hours before kick-off, I walked into the stadium and passed at least 10 bars, all packed with fans in green and gold T-shirts. Brisbane Stadium is expected to have all the tickets sold and a capacity of 49,000 spectators. The weather couldn’t be better – 26C, breezy. The weather is a little cold right now, but the place is close to warm.

Australia’s first attack came from a right-hand diagonal and ended with Gorey throwing Gary Leowin over the far post, and Ford was unable to engage, despite a lob from Perot Manin. France continues to drive to the left, this time with Kachavi cleverly but slowly getting into Arnold’s waiting palm. This isn’t the kind of fast action we’ve seen in Australia against Canada or Denmark. Matildas has yet to make a pass and only briefly gained ground with a sprint from Lasso on the right.

France will hope to benefit from de-stressing the host country and will face a tough test in front of the crowd.

We know we are playing not only against a team, but also against a country, French coach Hervé Renard said this week. “But that’s why we care about this game. “It’s a good game. The stadium is full when we play Brazil game here.Against Jamaica, even against Panama, the stadiums were full.

We should congratulate the people of Australia for it being done. Tomorrow will be a good time to celebrate.

The best chance of the match fell on Australia, but a good save by Elisa de Almeida kept the score. Some decisions of the French defense left the ball to play five yards away from Mary Fowler, an Australian at her mercy. However, De Almeida appeared and blocked the shot by placing his body in front of the ball to level the score. Things are amazing so far.
