That's the message Westfield Matildas rising star Teigen Allen wants to pass on to Aussie fans ahead of the upcoming two-match friendly series against Brazil in Brisbane.
The Matildas host the South American giants in Queensland on Sunday, April 6 and Wednesday, April 9 in a couple of vital warm-up matches for May's AFC Women's Asian Cup.
While still just 20-years-old, Allen is one of the most experienced members of Hesterine de Reus' squad and is thrilled to play her first international match against Brazil and their superstar forward Marta.
"It's always a good experience when you're chosen to represent you country," the defender told www.footballaustralia.com.au.
"You always get an amazing vibe form the fans and family. I'm very excited to face one of the best countries in the world and I'm so excited to get out on the field.
"I get really nervous (playing) top class teams but I get nervous in every international match. The nerves go away once you get that firs touch of the ball so hopefully it will."
Allen was an unused substitute the last time the two nations met back at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup, with Brazil emerging narrow 1-0 winners.
"I watched them play. They are an amazing team so I'm really looking forward to the games," the Western Sydney Wanderers defender said.
And Allen-s message to Aussie fans in Brisbane ahead of this very enticing encounter was a confident one: “Watch out. We-re going to kill it!”
The Westfield Matildas meet Brazil in a two match series at the Queensland Sports & Athletic Centre in Brisbane next week (Sunday 6 April (kick-off 3pm), and Wednesday 9 April (kick-off 4:30pm). Click here for ticketing details and to purchase tickets.
