Women’s International Round-Up

As the International Break comes to a close, Sydney FC turn their attention to the upcoming Liberty A-League Finals series.

While majority of the squad remained in Australia during the break and continued training ahead of this weekend’s Semi Final against Western United, two Sky Blues flew over to the UK to be part of the Matildas camp.

Jada Whyman and Cortnee Vine were included in Tony Gustavsson’s squad for the clashes against Scotland and England.

On Friday night Australian time, Cortnee Vine played 90 minutes for the Matildas against Scotland in a 1-0 victory for the hosts in which the winger was involved heavily in the Australians moving forward.

Jada Whyman trained with the squad throughout the camp however Mackenzie Arnold was the first choice keeper and played both matches. Despite not seeing any competitive action, the Sydney FC glove-woman will be all the better after training at a high intensity with the team for a week.

Against England on Wednesday morning, Cortnee Vine came off the bench in the first half and was involved throughout, in a brilliant 2-0 victory over England. This was the first time that England have tasted defeat in 30 matches which is a big achievement for the Matildas.

Vine limped off in the second half for the Matildas

Vine was subbed off in the second half which appeared to be from a calf complaint so Sydney FC fans will be sweating over her fitness ahead of this Sunday.

Regardless if Cortnee comes off the bench or starts the match on Sunday against Western United, she will have an impact on the contest.
