The Matildas are back in action in the early hours of Wednesday morning as they look to bounce back from the weekend’s thrashing at the hands of world No.2 Germany – by taking on world No.4, the Netherlands.

This block of internationals are the first for the Matildas since the COVID pandemic began more than a year ago and their rustiness was on full display as Germany ran away in the first hour, scoring four goals.

Emily Gielnik pulled two back on her own but ultimately ended up humbled.

New coach Tony Gustavsson remained optimistic however, and is fully aware of what his side needs to work on against the 2019 World Cup runners up.

“We cannot lose the ball as much as we did tonight,” the Swedish coach said.

“And on the other side, our pressing game didn’t press as much and so we ended up playing way too deep.

“It’s a good learning experience because of some of the things you might get away with at other levels you don’t get away with at the world level because everything is so fast. That’s one of the number reasons why I said we needed as tough schedule as possible to get this exposure and get this learning at an individual and team level. Was this an extreme challenge this time? Of course it was with all the circumstances. But we’re not going to shy away from that, we’re still going to go into these type of games with a mindset of getting better.”
