The Matildas go in search of the Cup of Nations title when they face Argentina in their final match at AAMI Park. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 6pm (AEDT).
With a win tonight, the Matildas will remain the only unbeaten side in the inaugural Cup of Nations event and claim victory in what has been a valuable hit out, in a very important year for Australian football.
South Korea will face New Zealand just hours earlier, with the hope of a win and a tidy goal haul to place some pressure on the Australians. It is highly likely the Koreans will prove too strong for the Kiwis and that will leave the stage set for the Matildas to deal with the Argentinians, who have failed to impress anyone in this tournament.
The visitors are yet to win a match and have conceded seven goals without finding one of their own. The Australians have had two excellent wins. A solid 2-0 performance against the Kiwis and a 4-1 trouncing of the Koreans on Sunday night, where they clicked as an attacking unit.
The tournament has been a worthwhile event, especially considering Ante Milicic has been watching his women in action for the first time as a unit. Now all that remains is for the Aussies to produce another sparkling effort against the South Americans and claim the first ever Cup of Nations Title, in what we all hope becomes an annual event.
Milicic will probably pull some changes and start a few peripheral players in this match, still searching for the women that he wants on the plane to France for the World Cup in June.
It will make no difference and the leaky Argentinian defence will be exactly that, with the Matildas breaching it on many occasions.
Australia 4 – Argentina 0.
