The Matildas will be looking to bounce back from a 3-0 defeat to the USA when the two sides meet again in Newcastle. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog from 8:05pm AEDT.

The Australian women will need to try and forget the horror start that saw them concede a goal inside the first 30 seconds of the game in Sydney on Saturday.

Coach Tony Gustavsson was certainly looking at the positives after the loss.

“I said we are going to treat this (these two games) as a World Cup final.” he said.

“It’s a very important reminder that the World Cup final is going to be won and lost inside 18 yards – the penalty areas.

“If you look at all the stats. We had 60 per cent of possession vs 40. 505 passes vs 336. 71 final third entries vs 47. 37 box entries vs 24. All those things we win the stats but then if you look at the actual finishing they win the finishing game by 14-11 and the scoreline of 3-0.”

As Gustavsson alluded to, it’s all about finishing the chances off and making the most of the possession. If the Matildas can do that and tighten up their defence when the USA do get counter-attacking opportunities than the scoreline should be much more in Australia’s favour.

The battle now is to overcome the psychological demons after another loss to the USA.
