The Young Matildas will go into tonight-s AFC U/19 Women-s Championship match against Japan, knowing a result is a must if they are to have any chance of getting through to the next FIFA U/20 Women-s Championship finals.
Placed in a tough group along with Japan, reigning world champions DPR Korea and Myanmar, the Young Matildas will need to be at their best against Japan, who will no doubt be looking for revenge after their exit to Australia at the last AFC Championship.
Coach Alen Stajcic has already said he thinks Japan is technically the best side at these Championships and his side will have to play well if they are to get the result they need. Only the top two from each group will go through to the semi finals and the chance to play at the next world championship.
Stajcic starting eleven for the clash is: Lydia Williams (gk), Clare Polkinghorne, Rachel Doyle, Caitlin Cooper, Lydnsay Glohe, Ellyse Perry, Renee Rollason, Teresa Polias, Elise Kellond-Knight, Tameka Butt, Vicki Balomenos.
The match kicks off at 8.15pm AEST.
