Her 2018 so far:

Williams will head to the Tournament of Nations with plenty of confidence after an exceptional year to date for club and country.

She played a key role in Melbourne City’s surge to the Westfield W-League title – winning her second Grand Final in a row in the Australian domestic league.

The 30-year-old has continued that form into the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) with Seattle Reign, where she's featured nine times between the sticks this season.

During the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup, Williams played three matches as the Westfield Matildas were beaten in the final by Japan.

She kept one clean sheet in the tournament, with a successful save rate of 60%, while her 82.6% accuracy with her passing shows how important her distribution is from the back.
