MATCH PREVIEW: A new arena for Westfield Matildas v New Zealand rivalry

On Thursday night at 6:00pm (AEST), the Westfield Matildas and New Zealand take their Trans-Tasman duel from the pitch to the screens.

The Westfield Matildas will be led by e-manager Lydia Williams, while her Melbourne City teammate and housemate Rebekah Stott takes the reins for the Football Ferns.

While the Aussies and the Kiwis have been doing battle on the park for over 40 years, this is the first time the controllers will do the talking in this e-battle. 

The Premiere will see the results of Williams and Stott managing their nations in a FIFA20 match.
