- Sweden 1-0 Australia in Algarve Cup opener in Portugal
- Australian defence caught napping during Lotta Shelin’s winner
The Matildas have lost 1-0 to Sweden in a below-par showing to begin their Algarve Cup campaign in Portugal. Australia had the ascendancy for most of the first half but squandered chances before world No.8 Sweden re-grouped to dominate the group C match at Albufeira.
Kyah Simon had Australia’s best first-half opportunity when Perth Glory’s Sam Kerr coasted past two defenders to find the Sydney FC attacker, who blazed her shot over the bar after half-an-hour.
