Sydney FC Players Win Matildas Selections

Sydney FC Players Win Matildas Selections

Sydney FC Liberty A-League stars Remy Siemsen, Cortnee Vine and Taylor Ray have all won selection for the Matildas ahead of the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup later this month.

Siemsen has been confirmed as part of Matildas Head Coach Tony Gustavsson’s 21-player squad for the tournament in India which starts on January 20th.

Vine and Ray have been called into the Matildas pre-tournament training camp which takes place in Dubai next week.

Unfortunately Ray will not be able to travel having tested positive to Covid-19 this week, but her initial selection is indication of her growing talent and promise ahead of next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Vine and Siemsen will leave for Dubai tomorrow to join the initial 25-player travelling party.

Remy Siemsen, Cortnee Vine & Taylor Ray have been called up to the Matildas ahead of the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup but sadly Ray will not be able to travel due to Covid-19.

Speaking on her selection for the tournament Siemsen said: “The last five months have been incredible and now selection for my first major international senior tournament, representing my country is a dream come true.

“I am so excited and can’t wait to be contributing to the Matildas on such a huge stage.

“I’ve so many people to thank for this opportunity, not least Ante and my Sydney FC team-mates as well as my family and all of Sydney FC’s Members,” said the 22-year old.

“Thank you also to Tony and the Matildas playing and coaching staff for this fantastic opportunity, I’ll be giving everything I can to help our country succeed.”

Siemsen and Vine lead the selections from the Liberty A-League and for 23-year old Vine it’s a first ever senior Matildas call-up.

“It is the biggest moment in my career so far and it feels like a continuation of the upward progression I’ve enjoyed since I came to Sydney FC.

“I couldn’t have achieved this without the help of Ante, our fantastic coaches and my team-mates.

“I’m looking forward to learning a huge amount from this camp and pushing my claims for a place in the final squad.

“It will be an unbelievable experience no matter what.”

The tournament lasts from January 20th to February 6th and Siemsen will return to the Sky Blues once the Matildas tournament is complete.

Sydney FC have four regular season games remaining after the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup Final.

Should Vine not make the final squad for the tournament, she will return in time for the Round 8 Liberty A-League clash away to Melbourne City on January 23rd.
