Sydney FC and Matildas striker Remy Siemsen is looking to use her experience from her time away with the Matildas to fire Sydney FC to a Premiers and Championship plate as the business end of the Liberty A-League reaches its conclusion.
Before her departure for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in India, Siemsen, was in scintillating form for Sydney FC and the striker is looking to pick up from where she left of, starting with Sydney FC’s match against the Newcastle Jets on Sunday.
“It was an amazing opportunity and experience to travel the world doing what you love doing. It’s a great honour for me, especially when you represent your country. For me it was a massive goal for me to make that Asian Cup squad and to be able to get some minutes in the tournament and I feel like I really developed in that training and tournament environment over there and I’m looking to bring that back with me to Sydney FC.”
“I really enjoyed spending time with my Matildas teammates. They were always giving me little tips and help to improve my game, when you brush shoulders with some of the best players in the world you’re only going to improve.”
With Siemsen and Sydney FC teammate Cortnee Vine on international duty, the pair kept a close eye on their teammates as they maintained their unbeaten run as well as breaking a record along the way.
“Cortnee and I would stream the games together. We screamed so loudly that I’m surprised they didn’t hear us over there.”
“We were just so happy with the team’s performance and it just goes to show the depth that we have here in this squad and that anyone can step up and get the job done and we couldn’t be prouder.”
“We knew that once we set foot back here in Australia that we need help continue the run and help this team get the three points.”
Siemsen and her Sydney FC teammates face the Newcastle Jets on Sunday in Newcastle and Siemsen is eagerly looking forward to the match. “We’ve spoken as a team about how tricky this match can be, we need to keep working for ourselves. Our defence has been great this season and it goes to show the hard work that everyone has been putting in. If we can stick to our game plan and how Ante wants us to play we have faith in ourselves to get the job done.”
Sydney FC face the Newcastle Jets on Sunday night, 13th February at the No. 2 Sportsground in Newcastle.
