Qantas Matildas coach Tom Sermanni is confident that his team will put on a good show for the Australian public, when it takes on Mexico as a curtain raiser to the Socceroos and Greece match tonight.
Sermanni will go into the match with virtually a full list to choose from, with only Lana Harch unavailable through injury.
Standing on the middle of the MCG pitch, Sermanni couldn-t help but wonder how the girls must be feeling ahead of tonight-s game.
“It-s a tremendous environment for the girls to play in,” said Sermanni. “Hopefully it will give them a boost rather than stage fright.”
“I think we have a pretty competitive team. I-d be disappointed if we came out flat, I-d be disappointed if we came out nervous, because we have prepared well for these games.”
The team for the first game against Mexico is: Melissa Barbieri (gk), Cheryl Salisbury (c), Thea Slatyer, Dianne Alagich, Heather Garriock, Joanne Burgess, Jo Peters, Collette McCallum, Sally Shipard, Kate Gill, Lisa De Vanna
The match kicks off at 4.30pm.
