The Matildas recorded a 4-2 loss to Sweden in the second match day of the Women's Football Tournament at Tokyo 2020, but the game provided for some exciting Aussie milestones and statistics.
It was an entertaining battle with the Swedes and Aussies exchanging the lead before the fifth-ranked team in the world kicked into another gear. The win for Sweden means it will progress to the knockout stages of the tournament.
Sam Kerr's Tokyo 2020 tally now sits at three after she scored a brace in this game. With service from Kyah Simon and Caitlin Foord, Kerr's two headers represented a little slice of history.
The Matildas' captain became only the second Australian woman to score multiple goals at an Olympics, following on from Michelle Heyman's double against Zimbabwe in Rio 2016.
The two goals also mean Kerr is now Australia's leading scorer at the Olympics with four to her name.
Heading into this contest the Matildas were not only winless against the Swedes in 10 matches but hadn't scored more than one goal in any encounter against the team in yellow and blue.
While the result wasn't favourable, Australia was able to find the back of the net multiple times for the first time against Sweden.
The six goals in total were also the most scored in a game between Australia and Sweden.
While Kerr was industrious up top, Emily van Egmond was putting in the work in the midfield. She won possession 16 times in the centre of the park. Only the Netherlands' Jackie Groenen has won possession more since the beginning of the 2016 Olympics.
The Matildas' focus now turns to Tuesday evening's clash with the USA.
