Australia’s women’s soccer team continued their dream run at the 2023 World Cup, defeating Denmark 2-0 in the round of 16 on Monday. The Matildas, who are ranked 10th in the world, were dominant throughout the match, with Caitlin Foord and Hayley Raso scoring the goals at 29th minutes and 70th minutes of the play respectively.

Sam Kerr made her long-awaited return from injury, coming off the bench in the 78th minute to a rapturous reception from the crowd. The Matildas captain had been sidelined since the group stage with a calf injury, but she showed no signs of rust, immediately making an impact on the game.

Australia’s victory sets up a quarterfinal clash with either France or Morocco. The French are one of the top contenders to win the championship and are also ranked fifth in the world, while Morocco are the surprise package of the tournament, having reached the knockout rounds for the first time.

The Matildas will be confident of their chances against either opponent. They have been one of the most impressive teams at the tournament, and they have a wealth of experience in their squad. Kerr is back to full fitness, and she will be a major threat to any team in the world.

On Saturday, August 12, 2023 the quarterfinal match will take place in Brisbane, Australia. It’s sure to be a sold-out crowd as the Matildas will be looking to make history and qualify for the FIFA World Cup semi-finals for the first time in the history of the tournament.
