Australia’s win over New Zealand blew out some nerves, their win over South Korea shows the swagger is returning
If the Matildas’ Cup of Nations campaign kicked off on Thursday with an encounter marked by the sense the team was feeling its way into a new era under a new coach, Sunday’s game against South Korea – the de facto Cup of Nations final – represented the sternest test for the tournament hosts, yet one the Matildas absorbed with aplomb.
This game was the closest replica this week’s matches offered to knock out World Cup football and for the South Koreans, whose World Cup ambitions are to make their maiden knockout stages (no mean feat, given their Group A compatriots include hosts France and former world champions Norway), the result will come as something of a disappointment, especially after their dominant performance against Argentina in Sydney.
