Elise Kellond-Knight ruled out of Chile series

Football Federation Australia (FFA) has announced that experienced Westfield Matilda Elise Kellond-Knight has been ruled out of Australia’s two-match series against Chile due to injury.

Westfield Matildas Head Coach Ante Milicic said: “It is unfortunate that Elise (Kellond-Knight) won’t be with us this month however her priority now is to get fit and get minutes under her belt with Brisbane Roar throughout the forthcoming Westfield W-League season.”

“We know what Elise at her best can offer to the national team, so we trust that she will make a speedy recovery and, like all our players, earn valuable game time leading up to the squad selection for next year’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifiers in China.”

A strong crowd is expected for Saturday’s international friendly between the Westfield Matildas and Chile at Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta, with the Matildas’ domestic standalone match record attendance of 16,829 potentially set to be eclipsed.
