    The Matildas are set to take on Brazil in their second friendly match at 7:30pm AEST on Tuesday 19 September. The Roar has got you covered with all the game information you need.

    The Matildas are enjoying the benefits of a strong run of form in recent months. Fresh from their exciting victory over Brazil in front of a sold-out crowd at Penrith, the Matildas continue to barrel towards a world number 1 ranking and will try to clean sweep the visiting team.

    The Brazilians, in their own right, are a powerhouse in women’s football, which makes the Matildas’ efforts on Saturday night even more exceptional. Boasting the talents of 5-time world player of the year Marta Vieira da Silva, they will pose another great challenge in Newcastle.

    Aussie star Sam Kerr said that knowing Brazil were coming into the match as underdogs, rather than favourites, was a huge achievement for the Matildas.

    “That’s what we want. We want to win consistently against top five or six nations. Brazil is a top side and they’ve got Marta, who’s one of the best to ever play the game.

    “So we’ve got a lot of respect for them but now we’re wanting to be the powerhouse of women’s football. We feel confident every game, but more so now after the recent results we’ve had.

    “It’s just great for women’s football, honestly. The girls were saying they were holding back tears during the national anthem with that whole crowd behind us.”

          Been some articles in The Herald, both Matilda’s and Cheryl Salisbury. Don’t see much local TV so there may be some ads there plus reports. Some online ads. Also Northern NSW Football sent an email or two through for registered player discount on tickets by quoting your MFN, but they were sold out 😉

          Maybe 14k to 15k has been the indicated number. A few people I spoke to hadn’t bought tickets yet but ‘were going’, and knew of others similar.

          We might get 16k or 18k tonight, hopefully. Nice night for football 😎
