The Matildas have also been hit with injuries, with Kaia Simon, Emily Van Egmond, Tameka Yallop and Claire Wheeler missing the games against South Africa and Denmark.
The quartet joins Alannah Kennedy (broken shoulder), who was already sidelined, on a casualty list that also includes Ellie Carpenter, who is still recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament injured in May.
Simon’s as-yet-unspecified injury is of greatest concern after he was stretchered off after a collision while playing for Tottenham against Reading in the FA Women’s League Cup competition.
The match, which Tottenham won 2-1, was postponed for several minutes following an incident late in the competition.
Attacker Remy Thiemssen and defenders Emma Checker and Matilda McNamara have been added to Australia’s squad as the Matildas prepare for Saturday night’s game against South Africa in London and Wednesday’s game against Denmark in Viborg. We are preparing.
Denmark-based McNamara is the only uncapped player on the team.
