After a scoreless draw against the US earned the Matildas a valuable point last night, Australia's National Women's Football Team have secured themselves an Olympic quarter-finals berth against Great Britain.
Australia finished as the best third-placed team in the tournament, which sets them up to play against Group E winners Great Britain on Friday, July 30, 5pm WST.
This will be the third time the Matildas have progressed to the quarterfinals, after achieving the same at Athens 2004 and Rio 2016 before being knocked out by Sweden, 2-1 in Athens and then at Rio by home nation, Brazil in a penalties heartbreaker, 6-7.
If the Matildas were to achieve a positive result against Great Britain, it would be the first time an Australian football team, men's or women's, have made it into an Olympic semifinal and had the podium in reach.
