Lydia Williams enjoys the battle of Matildas’ goalkeeper spot. She is on the verge of her 100th cap.
Australia’s top three female keeper Williams, Teagan Mica and Mackenzie Arnold are all, even though Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson has nominated an experimental team primarily for a friendly match between Spain and Portugal. It was chosen.
Mika and Arnold, who were used for most of Matildas’ games at the Tokyo Olympics last year, continue to push more experienced Williams during Matilda’s post at next year’s Women’s World Cup. -Organized by Australia and New Zealand.
“We are working together and are happy with the people who play,” said 34-year-old Williams.
“It’s a really good team that we have a goalkeeper rank. Australian Rules football has always produced really good goalkeepers.
“It’s always good to have some kind of comrade.”
Williams will record Matildas’ first-century appearance if she will face Spain on Sunday morning (AEST) in Huelva or Portugal on Wednesday in Estoril.
“I didn’t expect to come this far, so it’s an honor and a privilege,” said Williams, who made his debut in Australia at the age of 16 in 2005.
“I think I was around for everyone’s first cap, so see how everyone grew up and it’s more special to me.
“The 100 cap is really cool. I wouldn’t believe you if you were telling me that when I first played.
“This is my favorite team. I’m really excited to be back here.”
The deal between Williams and Arsenal of the British Women’s Super League has ended and discussions on the New Deal continue.
“We are still in the process of contract negotiations at this point, so we’ll look at it,” said Canberra United and a former custodian from Melbourne City.
