Westfield Matildas continue unbeaten run ahead of China PR match
Australia's run of scoring in 11 consecutive internationals may have ended in a 0-0 draw against Portugal overnight at the Algarve Cup, but they should feel confident of hitting the net in their next game.
Australia had won eight in a row in all competitions prior to the 0-0 draw with Portugal.
And the Westfield Matildas face China PR on Tuesday morning (Australian time) in their third match at the Algarve Cup.
Australia hosted their regional rivals last November in Victoria, hitting eight goals in total over two games.
The first was an impressive 3-0 victory at AAMI Park, featuring a stunner from superstar Sam Kerr who scored twice.
Then, in Geelong, the Australians really turned it on, scoring five times in a 5-1 demolition that was interrupted by freak weather conditions.
Australia will hope to continue this form against the Chinese at the Algarve Cup.
“We’ll need to win against China and hope that a couple of results go our way to make the gold medal match.
"We can still make the play-off for first place, and hopefully we can achieve that," coach Alen Stajcic after the draw with Portugal.
