Job done! Australia confirm a fourth Olympics appearance - in pictures

18 tickets to Tokyo, please - the Westfield Matildas are heading to one of world football's showpiece tournaments.

Australia confirmed their qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games by beating Vietnam 2-1 on Wednesday night (AEDT), thanks to goals from Sam Kerr and Hayley Raso.

It means Ante Milicic's side emerge 7-1 aggregate victors over the Southeast Asian giants over two legs, having beaten the world No. 32 ranked outfit 5-0 in Newcastle's first-leg last Friday.

The 2020 tournament commences in July, and will be the first since the Athens 2004 games that both Australia's men and women's teams have competed at the same time.
