Match preview: Vietnam v Westfield Matildas
Just 90 minutes is all that stands between the Westfield Matildas and their spot at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games as they take on Vietnam in the second leg of their play-off on Wednesday night.
Ante Milicic’s side have already taken a giant stride towards Japan after a superb 5-0 win in the first leg in Newcastle last Friday night.
Only a monumental turnaround from Vietnam would deny Australia a spot at the Olympics and you can be sure the likes of Sam Kerr and co. will be hungry to finish the job in style.

Westfield Matildas goalkeeper Lydia Williams
"We will always want to do better than previously. Just qualifying is big for us, barring the last time for Rio, it took us three turns to try and get there.
"To qualify again will be amazing and actually going to Tokyo and performing her will be great.
“Obviously we want to get to medal chances but it’s really one game at a time."
