One-sided shooting stat highlights Westfield Matildas' dominance of Thailand

The Westfield Matildas tuned up for the AFC Women's Asian Cup with an accomplished 5-0 victory over an outclassed Thailand on Monday night.

And the margin could easily have been greater, as illustrated by one of the key stats below.

  • Australia posted a whopping 32 shots at goal, without allowing Thailand a single shot.

  • The last time Alen Stajcic's side won by a bigger margin than tonight was a 9-0 win over Vietnam in March 2016.

  • The Westfield Matildas remain undefeated from five games against Thailand (W5) and have now outscored them by an aggregate of 20-1 in that time.

  • Thailand were kept goalless for the first time since a 5-0 loss to New Zealand in November 2017, and have now lost four of their last six games overall (W1, D1).

  • Alex Chidiac's sixth-minute goal was the team's quickest in a game since Lisa De Vanna scored in the second minute against Zimbabwe in August 2016.
